Pretty is as Pretty Does

I have decide to change the way my post go.  I had been thinking about it for a while, and with some feedback from a friend (Shout out to Adrienne), the style of my post will be new for this entry.  So let me know what you think, like or not, or anything else that can be changed.  So without further ado, today's review.
Pretties (Uglies, #2)

Pretties by Scott Westerfeld is the second of the Uglies trilogy.

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 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.

The Need to Knows of the Pretties:

1. Love that this book gives a better look at how the Pretties live. Really highlighting how different they are from the Uglies and those who lived in Smoke.

2. Love that Tally continues to grow as a character.

3. Like the use of words in the Pretty language that used in a different context than we use them. It helps to set the Pretties apart from the way we view things.

4. Like the introduction of the character of Zane. It is will interesting to see what role he will play in the final book.

5. My  biggest complaint is that some of the favorite characters from Uglies where missing for most of the book.

To read or Not to read:
Must read book (especially if you love dystopian society books.)

Currently Reading:
