Tally has finally become pretty Now her looks are beyond perfect her clothes are awesome her boyfriend is totally hot and she's completely popular It's everything she's ever wantedBut beneath all the fun th Here's what I wrote on my book club blog about Pretties and the whole series Westerfeld knows that he's writing to teens so he's trying to address a LOT of issues that teens face One is obviously being superficial Remember reading the teen magazines hearing all of the celebrity gossip not to mention your own school gossip trying to dress well and be cool? Maybe you were better than I was and didn't get pulled into that but most teens are And often the pull doesn't go away once you turn 20 and aren't a teen any I still find myself tempted to read the covers of the gossip magazines at the grocery store to watch another cookie cutter uninspiring chick flick or to read the mindless uick read books It's harder to choose the book that I'll struggle through but that will make me think and maybe even change or to turn off the tv when a couple of beautiful people are on the screen no matter what kind of dumb things they're saying When Peris chooses the promise of blissful ignorance and laxity of the Pretty society part of you can't really blame him Who wants problems? Who wants to have to think and to work when we can just be entertained instead? We have to consciously choose to resist that pull and teens are just being introduced to itAnother issue is our treatment of the environment I think that Westerfeld isn't advocating the pristine sustainable development of the Pretty society or the wasteful stupidity of the Rusties our present state but something in between that Tally gets a glimpse of with the Smokies A reverence and appreciation for nature but an understanding that nature is to provide for our needs and so cutting down a tree is not a sin some tree hugging extremists today might take the Pretties side on this don't you think?When the Rusties come along he's again attacking our tendencies for senseless violence adherence to illogical traditions women's subservience just because it's always been that way and even religious piety uestion authority he's saying all throughout the book That's what teens do naturally but he's targeting an authority that they don't always recognize the media Teens now can't live without their iPods they go to the movies every weekend spend hours and hours online and are basically overloaded by the media All of this keeps them from thinking on their own This book makes you think and hopefully can encourage some teens to think on their own and pull themselves away from all of the media that tries so hard to tell them what to think In addition to all of his preaching Westerfeld writes a captivating series with convincing characters and and draws you into his intriguing world as you read his books
