Book Review / Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

Below is the description for book 1 in the Uglies series.  For the description of Pretties, please click on the Goodreads link below.

Tally can't wait to turn sixteen and become Pretty. Sixteen is the magic number that brings a transformation from a repellant Ugly into a stunningly attractive Pretty, and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there.

But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be Pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the Pretty world - and it isn't very pretty. 

The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn Pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

This series just gets better and better.  I am marathoning this series and the time between finishing book 1 (Uglies) to starting this one was about a couple of hours.  I wrote my review for book 1 and then delved straight into the next one.  I just couldn't wait!  This book two has the same feel as the first book with all its fun, futuristic and action packed goodness but this book takes the story up a notch.  Obviously as this is book 2 I cannot go into too much detail because I don't want to spoil the story for those who have not read the first book in the series but let's just say that there are added complications in this story and a little more revealed about this world that made me love this story so much more!  Now I need to move on to book 3 right now, I just can't wait any longer! lol!
