The Pretty App
Beautiful mean girl Blake Dawkins appears to have it all—looks, social standing, money. But her life is far from perfect, and Blake dreams of eventually getting out from under the thumb of her father and into college. The second half of senior year takes an interesting turn with the debut of the Pretty App, where teenagers post their best selfies and rate one another, and also with the arrival of Leo, a transfer student whom Blake finds herself drawn to. When the Pretty App morphs into a beauty contest reality television show, Blake is chosen to compete and be declared the prettiest teen in America, a title which comes with all kinds of perks and may be the beginning of the TV career Blake wants so badly. But things don’t seem right once Blake arrives on set, and she has no idea who can be trusted.
The Pretty App is the follow-up to Katie Sise’s The Boyfriend App, although it is not necessary to have read the latter to enjoy the former. Blake is the kind of mean girl we all love to hate, except readers will find themselves sympathizing with her as her layers peel away to reveal the vulnerable, likeable girl inside. With an interesting plot that teens today will relate to, The Pretty App is sure to be a hit.
