Gorgeous. Popular. Perfect. Perfectly wrong.
Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.


But beneath all the fun -- the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom -- is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.


Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life -- because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive.

BOOK REVIEW:


What has become of Tally and Shay? I have to admit I did laugh at the 'bubbly' and 'bogus' dialogue, but it was to explain . I had to stop myself reading the book with a funny sounding voice in my head every time the pretties were talking.

I looovvvveeee Zane, what a great character. Zane is an uber dependable, smart guy. Peris , well hmmm I was hoping for more from the boy. David , will he be able to understand?  Shay...oh Shay!!..what are you doing!!!!?? ( and that's all I will say on that)

The excitement was stepped up for this book. Lots going on. Hot air balloon escapes and hoverboard chases, discoveries of what is outside of New Pretty Town and Uglyville.  

The world that seemed so small is now beginning to open up more for Tally. Tally's character really grows in 'Pretties'.

There are discoveries, further betrayals, love lost , love gained.....can't wait for Specials bk # 3.
