“ I didn't really like this book. I wanted to know more about what happened between Tally and David. Basically, I wanted this book to be more about them and not some annoying camera named Muggle or something.”Izabella wrote this review Tuesday, September 4, 2012.

“This book has a great plot, but I was kind of disappointed at the fact that none of the origional characters were in it much. Overall, it was still an amazing book.”Vivian Rose Bradfield wrote this review Wednesday, August 29, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This book is not as great as the first three books in this trilogy plus one. I guess I just wanted Tally.. not a new main character! Oh well.. ”Caroline Lockman wrote this review Tuesday, August 28, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Though my daughter disagrees with me, I preferred this book to Uglies or Specials. It's quicker-paced, and somewhat less predictable. My chief complaint was that Aya has the same problems Tally has with constantly making disloyal and dishonest choices. I kept wanting to gripe, "Enough already! You are way smarter than this." I liked that Westerfield brought Tally and her friends back, and I think he brought Tally back consistently with her story, still trying to deal with her last round of brain modifications.”Tracy wrote this review Thursday, April 25, 2013.

“I get the idea of this book, but it just doesn't seem to...follow through? It doesn't really compare to the "awesomeness" of the uglies series.”T.J. wrote this review Tuesday, August 7, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This book is not really part of the uglies series but is somewhat connected because Shay, Fausto, David and Tally are in it. The society has changed but is still super high-tech and super awesome. Aya Fuse has come across people surfing on top of a mag-lev train. In our age, it is what we call a bullet train. Aya tries to find out who they are. They are the Sly Girls and Aya wants to kick(publish) a story about them. She has to convince them that she's really one of them because they hate publicity. She also has to get her hovercam( robot video camera) to record them secretly. At almost the same time, Aya is getting to know Frizz, a super famous guy with his own clique, Radical Honesty. Aya can't imagine why Frizz wants to hang out with a total extra(people with low popularity/face ranks).
Aya and the Sly Girls find a secret passage way in a tunnel that the mag-lev trains pass through. Aya is convinced the metal cylinders are for causing world destruction. Aya publishes the story on the Sly Girls and the city-killers.
She then meets Tally Youngblood, the heroine of Uglies, Pretties and Specials. They get caught by the "freaks" on purpose. The "freaks" are things that look like extraterrestrials. Will Tally, Shay, Fausto, David, Aya, her brother Hiro, his best friend Ren and Frizz be able to find out what the "freaks" are really up to? Fantastic read.”
