At long last the final installment in Scott Westerfeld's immensely popular UGLIES trilogy is out. Tally Youngblood, the independent and strong-willed protagonist, has undergone more mental and physical changes than she can count. Now, for one last time, she will change again.

Tally has been a Cutter, a special division of Special Circumstances, for several months now. Cruelly beautiful with enhanced reflexes and easily triggered tempers, everyone fears the legendary Specials. Tally and her friend Shay want to subdue the New Smokies, who are spreading a cure to the bubbleheadedness. However, when one of their own is taken by the Smokies, Tally and Shay decide to go another avenue: they will help Zane, Tally's mentally damaged boyfriend, escape from New Pretty Town. Hopefully he will help the Cutters find the location of the New Smoke.

But Tally's feelings towards Zane conflict with her Special mental programming. And being in the wild is causing her overly sharp senses to calm down a little. What's more, it turns out that she and Shay have started a war between New Pretty Town and the New Smoke, a city called Diego. Tally must battle her Specials programming and learn to "think" for herself again before she can put a stop to this unnecessary war and the brain lesions.

The UGLIES trilogy will appeal to both boys and girls, and this fantastic conclusion really wraps up why Scott Westerfeld is such a brilliant writer. SPECIALS has action, emotion, love, and forgiveness, and the ending gives you hope. They are still out there.

I loved this book! It was action-packed, exciting, and had a surprise ending that I loved. Tally is now a Cutter, with icy vision, super-fast reflexes and not much of a conscience. Her only plan is to get Zane made into a Cutter, but her plan backfires as she finds the New Smoke and realizes it's unstoppable. She turns out to be a bit wrong since Dr. Cable announces that they will wage war against the New Smoke. You would think that Tally would be happy now but seeing a real war like the ones that ended the period of the Rusties scares her into realizing what she is and what she must do.

This book is the last booko sadly in a trilogy by Mr.Westerfield. In Specials Tally becomes a.. special. Readers of the ugly trilogy will be in shock as the story line progresses. People die, enemies become friends and most importantly readers will grow to understand that even if we tried to ever have a "perfect" "pretty" society it woudl never truly work because our minds are what make us unique and we will always have them.

"Face it Tally-wa, your special."

Tally has been tunrned into a special. A fighting machine that keeps the world in order. She's offered the chance to close the New Smoke forever, but one problem. The new Smoke has joined with another city, making it stronger than ever.
Tally sees Zane, and is scared by him. The brain damaged has made him crippled. Tally was making an effort to save Zane, to make him special like her. To save Zane sparks a war between cities. As Zane and his friends runaway to the New Smoke in order for Tally to track him, he falls sick. Tally arrives in time to see him taken off life support and die.
Tally no longer wants to be special and worry abou this. She goes to the ruins where uglies would go and wait for David to take them to the smoke. There she found David, an ugly, but her first love, and found her beautiful even before she had the operation. She and Davd ran off together, and lived in the wild, away from the city, until things calmed down.
