Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in a future where cosmetic surgery is a requirement at age 16 and attractiveness is mandated, Scott Westerfeld's popular Uglies series has received critical acclaim from the press and public alike. Chock-full of action, adventure and teenage rebellion, there's no question why Uglies has attracted thousands of fans. In Mind-Rain, popular authors examine the series and delve into the underlying themes. What sort of critiques are Uglies, Pretties, Specials and Extras making about the real world? Is there more behind Tally, David and Shay?

Mind-Rain is a collection of smart, analytical and completely unauthorized essays on Scott Westerfeld's wildly popular Uglies series. Westerfeld's written introduction gives readers insight from the person who knows the series best!

Synopsis:

Mind-Rain is the perfect jumping-off point for studying the Uglies series. Its essays address many of the books' biggest themes — the dangers of complacency, the value of conformity versus rebellion, the definition of natural, society's obsession with beauty — in addition to providing surprising insights sure to sure to spark student debate.

Synopsis:

Why is Shay the real hero of the Uglies series? Who was the better boyfriend for Tally: David or Zane? How can we prevent prettyheaded behavior in our own world?

In Extras, the last book in Scott Westerfelds Uglies series, Aya tells us that when Tally Youngblood made the mind-rain fall, it cured all the pretties and changed the world forever. But Tally and her friends did more than change their world; they changed ours too.

Mind-Rain continues what Tally started, with startling, funny and insightful essays on the world, characters and ideas of the Uglies series, plus the short story that inspired Westerfeld to write the books in the first place.

Think you know everything about Tallys world? After Mind-Rain, youll never look at the Uglies series the same way again.
