The first book set the stage (duh). Basic premise is that the books are set in the future after humans "rusties" nearly destroyed the world and all nearly perished due to some oil related virus. In the futuristic model world, people live in Uglytown (I really can't remember the actual name) until they turn a certain age when they have an operation that renders them pretty much perfect in every way and they can move into New Pretty Town. The main character does all sorts of rebellious teenage things and discovers that there is another world outside the well kept boundaries of her city. In Pretties the main character's role and personality becomes more defined. I read this in one night. I still haven't had time to go to the book store for the next book. Maybe I'll start re-reading the first two and THEN I will buy the others.

Lucy by the way has made it through her first two full days of summer camp. Tonight she was pretty good. No really good. Tonight she was fun to be with. I decided to focus on her, stay of fthe phone as much as possible and just have fun. We were in our pool within 5 minutes of getting home, both of us in the pool (brrrrr). I let Lucy mix up one of her concoctions: 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, this mornings coffee grounds, sesame seeds, about 1 cup of coffee from this morning, two emptied tea bags (good earth original) some broken spagetti noodles and a couple pieces of pepperoni.... yummm. She was very content to do this while I made dinner. I love nights like tonight.
