Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Gorgeous. Popular.

Perfect. Perfectly wrong.

Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun — the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom — is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life — because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive.

Synopsis:

A fresh repackaging of the bestselling Uglies books...the series that started the whole dystopian trend!
