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?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... I read Uglies and it brought me back to the love of reading, so as you can imagine i was eager to read more! As i picked up this book and started to read, i was intrigued, but not for long. Tally's character lost some great qualities and i will not be reading anymore of Scott's work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as good as Uglies I love this series so far but I felt that it was kind of a step down from Uglies. The plot was pretty much the same as the first book with more twists which I thought worked pretty well. The language was a bit too much that i thought it was so not bubbly and more dizzy-making but it was necessary to show how much they have changed and not like their real selves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from As Good as Uglies This was the sequel to the Uglies. It was a good read, very interesting and kept me wondering what would happen next. If you enjoyed the first book, you'll enjoy this one too. It was a bit distracting that they pulled another love triangle like all popular books of today! I think the love triangle scenario is getting a bit old; Hunger Games, Twilight, etc. But all in all, it was a good read and it defiantly makes me want to read the next book and find out what kind of trouble she can get herself into next.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was OK This book was just OK for me and seemed to be more filler rather than something that added to the story/series. Maybe it will make sense when I continue reading the series?
