Review: The Pretty App by Katie Sise

The Pretty App

Author: Katie Sise
Published On: April 14th, 2015
Page Count: 352

Synopsis: (Found on Goodreads)
Poor Blake Dawkins! She's rich, she's gorgeous, and she's the queen bee of Harrison High. The girls want to be her; the boys want to—okay, enough said. But it turns out Blake’s life is not so perfect—just talk to her dad, who constantly reminds her that she's not up to par, or to her ex-bff, Audrey, who doesn't even look her in the eye.
Then Harrison—and every other high school in America—becomes obsessed with posting selfies on the ubiquitous Pretty App.


Overall Rating: 5/5
Although not as techy as The Boyfriend App. This book is amazing. Would love to have seen more about Audrey's real beauty app. It's awesome to see Blake be who she wants to be. Leo was an interesting character and fit my ideal nerdy boy so that was a great addition.


Cover: 5/5 

I think the Boyfriend App and The Pretty App fit perfectly together. They are simplistic and cute. They offer just enough tech to make you know it’s an app as well as the font isn’t annoying.



Characters:
Blake: Mean girl realizing she will no longer be the biggest fish in the sea after high school. I occasionally wanted to slap her but there was reason behind it. She is well written and in the end she learns and grows so much with Audrey’s help.
Audrey: Yay, geeky girl in the house again. She really steps up to the plate even when Blake is being a total bitch. I feel like Audrey really is relatable and almost stronger than Blake the MC. It might be because there was more backstory on her originally.  
Leo: I NEVER really liked him. I did understand him and got use to his presence but in reality I wanted him to be the complete bad guy that was just working the system.  

Plot:
The 3-day reality TV show just wasn’t really doing it for me. Sise talks about a few tough subjects like Social media`s portrayal of women, cyber-bullying and gender identity. This wasn`t as techy as The Boyfriend App but I think where the real story comes in at about breaking the “norms” of high school and going out of your comfort zone is where this book really hits home.

Bonus:
page 159
45.0%
"Not as techy as The Boyfriend App but it's nice to be back with amazing characters and hear more about Blake."

TTFN,
Ashley
