Synopses & Reviews
A few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime, a cultural renaissance swept the world. Now popularity rules. Everyone craves fameand#8212;and fifteen-year-old Aya Fuse is no exception. But her face rank of 451,396 is so low, sheand#8217;s a total nobody. An extra. Ayaand#8217;s only chance to escape extra-land is to find a big story to kickand#8212;something wild and unexpected. Then Aya meets a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks. She knows she can propel herself into celebrity; but at what cost? Thereand#8217;s more at stake than Aya realizes in this spectacular conclusion to the Uglies series.
Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that?
Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. Not for her license — for turning pretty. In Tally's world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there.
But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world — and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.
A fresh repackaging of the bestselling Uglies boks...the series that started the whole dystopian trend!
