Specials by Scott Westerfeld

I recommend this book for: grade 7 and up

In this sequel to Pretties, Tally has become a Special. She's Shay's lieutenant in a unit under Dr. Cable's control, dedicated to destroying the Smokies once and for all. She is fast and strong, and completely dedicated to her mission - except for when she starts thinking. When she's forced to choose between Shay and the now-crippled Zane, she picks him - and chooses a path that leads her to a new city to prevent a war.

I absolutely loved Uglies and Pretties. This installment had all of the futuristic technology and ethical questions of the first two, but it didn't excite me as much even though it had hoverboard chases and explosions. It's definitely a worthwhile read for anyone who has enjoyed the series, but not as good as the first two.
