Synopsis: 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.
Discussion: I think the first book was better, to be honest. This one had a lot of unnecessary stuff in my opinion. And I didn’t enjoy Tally as much.
That GIF basically explains my feelings about this book. I guess there were mini-climaxes, but I didn’t really want to read on sometimes. There was a part where I had to cover up the page because I was so excited to read it. But overall, it was “meh.”
I can’t wait to read Specials, though; I feel like this is the bridge between the two.
Honestly, I don’t know what to say. I do, however, like Zane. He’s pretty awesome.
