Pretties by Scott Westerfeld
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
We meet up with Tally again in this book to discover that what she ended up fighting against at the end of the last book has come to fruition.
Being Pretty seems to be a wonderful way of life. No anger. No jealousy. No hatred. No freedom of choice... Wonderful? Tally soon comes to realize that this way of life is not what she had originally planned for herself and she needs to find some way to break herself of the mindless daze she's been put under.
In this continuing saga of Tally Youngblood, we go on a journey of fears and struggles that many of us endure whether we realize it or not. To fit in or to stand out?
This book really was an excellent continuation from the first book. You cannot help but cheer for Tally as she pushes through her daze and overcomes so many obstacles. My only complaint is the Pretties' language... it can get rather annoying. But it is the way they speak and we have to understand that from that perspective to understand just how badly their minds are altered to think and act in one way and one way only.
