Yep, though honestly I wasn't that impressed with Cutters.

HOW!? I am still utterly obsessed with both of them... I saw someone with a copy of Specials today and started squealing... :D
I liked the manga too, but Shay's Story was better than Cutters. And I don't like graphic novels in general, so...

It's cool that the book didn't hold one over the other... like in a lot of books when the lead is with one person, and then they're with another, the book starts presenting the first person as being "bad." But David was never "bad" in the book... just not as good to Tally as Zane.

Also, I thought of probably the most convincing argument for David ever (that I can't believe I didn't realize before) I give you this passage from Pretties:

After a long moment, the two pulled a little apart, Tally's eyes still closed. She felt his breath against her, his hand warm and soft on the back of her neck.

"David," she whispered.


So, yeah. The first time she kissed Zane, she started thinking he was David. So at the beginning, at least, she liked David better. Zane's still awesome, though. Argh! Now I'm fighting with myself again...

I deny this, she thought about David when Zane kissed her because before Zane David was the only one who had done that to her, thus she associated the feeling of being kissed with David merely because she had never exuberance that feeling with anyone else. Therefore your logic is flawed and invalid.

And I guess that getting her to remember David was one of the reasons he kissed her in the first place. (Unless I misunderstand.)

Also, was David her first kiss? I know she was thinking about how kissing as uglies didn't count, but that doesn't mean she hadn't before.

With how ugly and gross she thought uglies were, I say yes.
