Specials by Scott Westerfeld, 372 pages
It's the End of the World; third in a series; young adult challenge
Tally and Shay and Zane are all back living in New Pretty Town and being rebellious. The story is a continuation of the Uglies and Pretties books, and shouldn't be read out of order. It completes the story of the future, where beauty is desired and the population must be controlled so they don't ruin the world again like the Rusties did several hundred years ago. Nothing new here, just more awareness for Tally of her actions and how her world is run. The population is gradually breaking away from the rules imposed on them, since as in all good dystopian books, while everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others. This eventually causes problems.
This series has been enjoyable and I'd compare it to cotton candy: easy and light, enjoyable, but nothing too deep. Fun while you read it, especially all the neat future gadgets, but gone quickly.
