Pretties, by Scott Westerfeld

The sequel to Uglies.

The sequel to Uglies is a great continuation of the original with the feel of a new story. I just loved it. Tally becomes pretty to try and find a cure for her best friend Shay. Shay has brain damage due to the operation that made her pretty. Tally will also get brain damage when she gets the operation, but she has already given permission to a scientist to give her experimental drugs that may cure the damage.

Tally has forgotten all about The Smoke and finding a cure. The operation that made her pretty has also fried a few brain cells. Now all Tally knows is partying with her new found hunk, Zane. But when an old friend crashes a pretty party and gives Tally 2 pills and a note from herself that she wrote while she was still ugly. Tally has to make a choice. Take the pills or not. Unable to decide before getting busted by special circumstances, Tally splits the pills with Zane. They each take one pill. They both seem to be waking up to their former selves when Zane starts to have a bad reaction to the pill. Tally is desperate to save Zane's life. The only way to help Zane is to find the Doctor who created the cure, but that would mean breaking out of Prettytown and trying to find the NEW smoke. Tally embarks on another adventure that will keep you turning the pages.

You won't be disappointed with this one, but if you haven't read the first book then this one may be hard to follow.
