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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Riveting and compulsively readable, this action-packed sequel does not disappoint. Just as good as its predecessor, it will leave fans breathlessly waiting for the trilogy’s final volume.”


  • “Westerfeld has built a masterfully complex and vivid civilization. His characters are multidimensional, especially Tally, who wrestles with what she has done in the past and what she will be forced to do in the future. Uglies and Pretties are both nearly impossible to put down.”

    " Pretties is an amazing book. The world that Pretties is set in an absolutely wonderful world to imagine. Scott Westerfeld is amazing at creating characters, plot, and description. I never had any trouble in figuring out what exactly was happening, unlike other books. Basically, Pretties's plot is that Tally Youngblood has just become "Pretty" and she is living her new life in New Pretty Town. Then an old friend drops by and gives her a note, that she had written herself. She then realizes what exactly being "Pretty" meant. I love Scott's imagination. His writing is so bold, and he took a great risk of writing this book. I think he did an amazing job. This world of his is so intricate and he describes it so well. The only problem I have had with this book is it being a little too cheesy. Because seeing "Shay-la" and "Tally-wa" can get a little annoying. Other than that, it is wonderful. Pretties is a sterling book. It is an superb romance set in a superb world. I highly recommend this book and the series as a whole. "

    " This book started out slow and boring to me, but then picked up a bit. I'll likely read book #3. I've decided I hate the term "bubbly" though. "

    " I actually really enjoyed the first novel, Uglies, because I honestly believed in everything the main character was going for, and I eagerly began the second one and it was absolutely terrible. She turns into a 'pretty'. That's all I have to say. That's all I can say. Those are the only words that I can force out of my mouth when talking about this book. Other than that this book was definitely not pretty. It was, in fact, pretty ugly. "
