I immensely enjoyed Pretties. Much more-so than Uglies. While Uglies was interesting and necessary to set the tone for the entire series, it was very predictable. After Westerfeld set acclimated readers to the ugly/pretty world, he was able to dive deeper and create a story with a deeper plot as well as throw in some unexpected turns. Again, it's not the great American novel, but it's a good story. One in which I was able to get quickly wrapped up in.
