Tally est enfin devenue une sublime Pretty. Tout le monde l'apprécie et son petit copain est craquant. Mais au coeur de cette vie de fête, de luxe hightech et de liberté, perce un sentiment de malaise. Un jour, Tally relit un message, écrit de sa propre main lorsqu'elle était Ugly. Les souvenirs reviennent : sous la beauté parfaite et le bonheur absolu des Pretties, se cache une effroyable vérité.
