Tally's Journey to become a pretty Will tally do the operation that can change her life forever, or will it all fail?

Week 4:

The Theme:

I believe that the point of the novel had a bit of drama in it adventure. Drama because Tally had to break a promise of either Shay or Peris, and either one would get mad at her. Adventure because tally went to go find Peris because she missed him, and because she had to go find shay so she can become a pretty. It is also Mystery because Tally has to figure the directions on where Shay is and go find where she hide away, it can also be mystery because she is not sure anymore that she will become a pretty because she knows that Shay ran away.

Week 3: Memories

I am so scared right now! If you had asked me last year if I was excited to become a pretty, I would have said yes, definitely. I don't feel that way anymore. Sure, becoming a pretty is all that I have ever wanted in my life, but am I willing to betray one of my friends to get that?

I remember growing up with Shay. She was ambitious, and very "out-there" if you know what I mean. We would always play, and pretend we were pretties. I remember one time, she told me "When I grow up, I am going to be the prettiest Pretty in all the land!". Now, she is lost in the land.

And what am I supposed to do about Peris? I promised him that I would stay on my best behaviour, and not get into trouble, so I would join him as a pretty. I remember the look in his eyes, the serious look, when he told me I had to become a pretty so we could live happily together in Pretty town. The look has burned itself into my memory, reminding me why I have to become a Pretty.

I am nervous for what will happen next. What am I supposed to do? Should I stay out of everything and protect Shay, even if it means I don't get to be a pretty and see Peris? Should I betray Shay, just so I can become a pretty? I have been put in a very awful position.

I remember when I was a young Ugly, and everyone was happy. I want everything to be the way it used to be. I want my friends back by my side, not living in Pretty Town, and not hiding out somewhere in the land. I am scared, because whatever I do, something bad will happen!

What do I do now???

Week 2: Reflection

I don't know what to do right now! I absolutely need to find Peris, because we are best friends. I can't live without him! I know I should be happy for him, because he is becoming a pretty, but I just can't calm down! What if we never see each other again after his operation? What if we lose our friendship?

I need to find him!

The only way that I can think of that will help me find him is to go to Pretty town myself, but that is a death mission. Someone like me wouldn't be able to blend in with people like them. It's times like this when I really wish that I was a pretty.

You know what? I don't care anymore. I need to find Peris, and get my best friend back. I need to travel to Pretty town. Even though there is a good chance that I will get captured and get punished, I am going to do this. I can't let this operation ruin my friendship.

I am going to find Peris, and I am not going to let anyone or anything come in my way!
