was by far the best book of the series. The plot of this book was the most intriguing and exciting to read. I was worried after finishing Uglies
because I was very unsure about how I felt after reading, but Tally really grew into a likable character and I cared about her more in this book. I also loved Zane, he's the most interesting character Westerfeld has introduced in the series. I was shocked to find that Tally had a new love interest after David. I expected to see a lot more of him in this book, but he was absent for the majority of it. And, I found myself happy about this. I liked David for the most part, but I found his relationship with Tally sort of forced. It wasn't as believable as her relationship with Zane, which came about more organically. I was very disappointed with Westerfeld's decision with Zane in Specials
, though. It was a waste of a great character and I will forever hold a grudge!
I enjoyed this book much more than the other two, and I wish Uglies
were just as good. However, Westerfeld missed out on the opportunity to make a good trilogy great.
