Being the third book in a triology, it is acually pretty good. The first two were amazing. This one picks up two months after the second leave off. With Zane still dealing from complications from taking the bad pill, Tally and Shay and other Crims now the special elitie Cutters of Special Circumstances. This book has everything, love, war, and tragedy. A must read if you read the first two. Like them, it is interesting, devulges more about the past, well written, and full of surprises. This book has an ending you really didn't see coming. Everyone should read these books.

One of the best of the best books by Scott Westerfeld. A young girl turned inhuman by an illegal surgery is forced to choose between her Boss or her boyfriend, but if she can't even stand to look at him, it's hard. This book is starred a thousand times on my list.

Simon Pulse -
by School Library Journal,
"Westerfeld's themes include vanity, environmental conservation, Utopian idealism, fascism, violence, and love. In this trilogy, the author calls for a revolution in our hearts and minds."
"Tally's gradual groping toward independent thought, may strike readers as rather similar to devices used in the preceding books, and the setup feels overcomplicated. But series fans will still relish this final visit to Westerfeld's dystopian world."
In this final book of Westerfields trilogy, Tally has been transformed from a repellent ugly to supermodel pretty. Now shes a super-amped fighting machine. Her mission is to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid. But Tallys never been good at playing by the rules.
