You Could Be So Pretty (Paperback)Holly Bourne (author)
The author of The Yearbook returns with a blazing YA dystopia that melds The Handmaid's Tale to Uglies, as Belle and Joni must choose whether to become Pretty or Objectionable.
Uglies meets The Handmaid's Tale for the new YA generation, from bestselling queen of YA Holly Bourne.
Beauty comes at a price. And girls must pay.
In Belle and Joni's world there are two options for girls:
One, follow the rules of the Doctrine like Belle: apply your Mask, work hard to be crowned at the Ceremony, be a Pretty.
Or two, fight the rules like Joni: leave your face bare, work hard to escape to the Education, be an Objectionable.
But maybe there is a third option... If Belle and Joni work together, can they destroy the rules and set themselves free?
