Publisher Comments:

The first installment of Scott Westerfeld's andlt;Iandgt;New York Times andlt;/Iandgt;bestselling seriesand#8212;a global phenomenon that started the dystopian trend.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The Uglies series has more than 3 million books in print, has been translated into twenty-seven languages, and spent more than fifty weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Now all four books feature fresh new covers and will reach an even wider audience.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Tallyand#8217;s adventures begin in Uglies, where she learns the truth about what life as a Pretty really means. She rebels against the surgery that will make her a Pretty, but ultimately succumbs. In Pretties, Tally has forgotten all about her Ugly life, and when sheand#8217;s reminded, she has a hard time listening. And what littleand#8217;s left of the old Tally is further compromised in Specials, because Tally has been transformed into a fierce fighting machine. But when sheand#8217;s offered a chance to forever improve civilization, will she be able to overcome her brainwashing? The answer is evident years later in Extras, after the Pretty regime has ended. Boundless human creativity, new technologies, and old dangers have been unleashed upon the world. But fame and popularity can be just as dangerous as extreme beautyand#8230;.

Synopsis:

A fresh repackaging of the bestselling - and now classic - Uglies series

Synopsis:

A chance at the ultimate makeover means deadly consequences in this Sarah Dessen-meets-Robin Cook thriller

Aislyn suffers from crippling shyness—that is, until shes offered a dose of Charisma, an underground gene therapy drug guaranteed to make her shine.  The effects are instant.  Shes charming, vivacious, and popular.  But strangely, so are some other kids she knows.  The media goes into a frenzy when the disease turns contagious, and then deadly, and the doctor who gave it to them disappears. Aislyn must find a way to stop it, before it's too late.

 

Part medical thriller, part social justice commentary, Charisma will have readers on the edge of their seats.

Synopsis:

A death-defying tropical adventure delivers a frightening message about dabbling with creation from the talented author of Origin.

On a remote island in the Pacific, Corpus scientists have taken test tube embryos and given them life. These beings—the Vitros—have knowledge and abilities most humans can only dream of. But they also have one enormous flaw.

Sophie Crue is determined to get to Skin Island and find her mother, a scientist who left Sophie behind years ago. She enlists hunky charter pilot Jim Julien to take her there. But once on the island, Sophie and Jim encounter more than they bargained for, including a charming, brilliant Vitro named Nicholas and an innocent, newly awoken one named Lux.

In a race for their lives, Sophie and Jim are about to discover what happens when science stretches too far beyond its reach.
