I have been aiming to read this book all year and I promised myself I'd have it read by the end of '09 so I made it! Now, I'm thinking why did I wait so long to read a book that is near perfection? Beautiful writing, a superb pace, captivating premise, honest characters, plus a whole lot more of great storytelling. Okay, so the book is perfectly brilliant! I enjoyed it to a magnificent degree. It gripped me from the first line:

"The early summer sky was the color of cat vomit."

I also found that I really loved the main character, Tally, most of the time. I was always curious about her and what her motives really were. She kept me guessing and it was an emotional ride for me which I consider to be fun! I also really liked her friend, Shay. She had the purest heart and tried her best to be a good friend.
I am squeamish and I was glad to find out that there wasn't a lot of description or gore that I had wondered about with the "pretty" operations. So, that was a relief.
I'm already reading the next book in the series, Pretties, when I'm supposed to be reading a pile of other books for book groups etc...
Doesn't that say it all?
