Review: Specials

Specials (Uglies, #3)
Scott Westerfeld
Simon Pulse
"Special Circumstances":

The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent, rebellious ugly. Back then Specials were a sinister rumor -- frighteningly beautiful, dangerously strong, breathtakingly fast. Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special. But Tally's never been ordinary.

And now she's been turned into one of them: a superamped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid.

The strength, the speed, and the clarity and focus of her thinking feel better than anything Tally can remember. Most of the time. One tiny corner of her heart still remembers something more.

Still, it's easy to tune that out -- until Tally's offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently. It all comes down to one last choice: listen to that tiny, faint heartbeat, or carry out the mission she's programmed to complete. Either way, Tally's world will never be the same.
My Review: Tally has gone through another operation making her a special. The people she feared the most. Though I enjoyed this book . This book took the story from Tally and focused on the society. This was just as compelling as the pervious two books. The writing is just as good and the others and draws you in from the start. This was the first series I have completed in a while that made me sad to see the finale but it was a great ending.
