Specials by Scott Westerfeld

Specials by Scott Westerfeld is the third book in the fantasy series Uglies. The teenage protagonist Tally has turned into a Special, an agent of Special Circumstances with razor-sharp senses and skills. She is ordered to track down the New Smokies, a group that tries to cure the Pretties brain lesions which were implanted in their brains with the pretty-making surgery. Along the way, she is given another choice to take which involves not betraying her former friends and stopping a major conflict. I give this book a 4.5-star rating because the author keeps you guessing and you’ll never know what the characters will do next. It also makes you imagine each possible outcome due to the number of choices the characters are given. However, it’s very complicated with all the different storylines and conflicts. Specials is full of character’s thoughts, emotions, and feelings. If you liked the Hunger Games or Divergent, you’ll likely appreciate this book and its series.
