Specials by Scott Westerfeld (review by Stephanie S. ’17)

Specials (Uglies, #3)Specials by Scott Westerfeld
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Specials is the third book in the Uglies series and fails to disappoint. Tally has recently been turned into a Special. Special Circumstances is the frighteningly beautiful authority of the region. Even though Tally has had many encounters with the Specials, she never dreamed of being one. As a Special, she feels almost nothing: No pain, no emotion. Everything is unnaturally clear. Everyone in the authority can detect a lie in a matter of seconds. Although Tally thinks she is content with her newest lifestyle and group, the Cutters, she often feels a pang inside of her, missing and remembering her rebel days. Later, the Specials find the New Smoke – a place where the Uglies hide. Orders are given for the Cutters to destroy this sanctuary. Tally again needs to choose between listening to the small voice inside of her or ignore it and carry out orders. Tally’s decision is unexpected and makes this a superb sci-fi read. – Stephanie S. ‘17
