Publisher's Summary

In Tally's world your 16th birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellant Ugly into a stunningly attractive Pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise, where your only job is having a really good time. Just before her birthday, Tally discovered that turning Pretty comes with a terrible price. She vowed to accept the operation but with the understanding that her friends on the outside would rescue her and let her be the guinea pig for the experimental and highly dangerous cure they're developing.

But in the second book of the Uglies series, Tally's Pretty. And everything's changed. The new, Pretty Tally is totally happy right where she is. She doesn't think she needs any kind of cure at all. When someone from her Ugly life shows up with a message, Tally has a hard time listening. Did she really promise to give all this up? Is she bound by a promise she made when she was a different person? If there is anything left of the old Tally, how will she fight her way out to keep her word and help her friends?

    "School required summer reading book"

    Good book...certain parts I found were unnecessarily lengthy and others were quite predictable but overall pretty well written. I'd recommend this book to ages 12-17.

    "Always a new twist!"

    As with the first book the narrator's voice is so expressive and she makes you want to keep listening. Also the story line continues on perfectly from the first book! If you liked Hunger Games or The Maze Runner series you will definitely like this. Start from the first book though so you can get the full background on what is happening. if you start with this book toy may not fully understand what is going on! Get this book and your won't be able to put it down!

    "Better than the first book"

    I was skeptical when I began this book as to whether I'd enjoy it but contrary to most sequels the second book is even better with a surprising twist at the end.

    Story
    "Pretty Anazing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pretties to be better than the print version?

    I just finished this book. I listened to Uglies and Pretties in 3 days while on vacation. The narrator was amazing. Her voice was soothing and wonderful, with just enough difference for each character to keep it from getting boring. The storyline, of course, has always been unique. Becoming pretty by surgery at sixteen as a fact of life is insane. That everybody who didn't surge was considered ugly and crazy just seems unreal. The characters seem so real. Everybody has their own personality and just seems to become real inside your brain. If you are looking for a great new series, look no farther.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In Pretties, Zane was one of my favorites. He seemed so different and mysterious. A pretty with a brain.

    "Pretties is amazing"
    Would you listen to Pretties again? Why?

    Yes! I read this as a teen and loved it even more as an adult ! The performance was perfect!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Tally. Her struggles you feel as if they were your own.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Tremaine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She does a great job as the narrator. I've listened to his whole series, Pretties, Specials, etc and she does a fantastic job at conveying the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There's always good parts and bad parts that make you cringe. I loved it all.

    "Loved it!"

    A great way to pass the time working. Love the story! When I read the book I wanted to throw it across the room. Now that I listen to it all I can do is turn it off instead when it gets frustrating.
