** spoiler alert ** I would have given this novel a higher rating because it did a nice job of wrapping up trilogy but then I realized that all these events, three whole books worth of society-changing, occurred in less than a year. Tally went from being an ugly dreaming of fitting in among the pretties, to a pretty overcoming her own brainwashing, to a special full of anger, pain, and hate. Her body was changed too much, her brain was messed with too much, and her heart was broken wayyyy too often (okay, maybe that part is typical for a teenager) for just one year.

This book returned to its Uglies' roots. It's good but the trilogy's timeline is too compressed for believability.
