The world has become a different place since Tally Youngblood upset the Uglies, Pretties, Specials applecart. What it's like? Well, visualize an all-day, everyday version of American Idol, where everybody's a contestant and there are cameras everywhere.

Of course, such obscurity has its small rewards, all of which have now become endangered by her friendship with the Sly Girls. Another futuristic thriller by Uglies trilogy author Scott Westerfeld.

The higher your face rank, the more popular and famous you are. One day, Aya, when surfing with the Sly Girls, finds a tunnel fille...

I just found the "reputation economy" of the city in this story interesting to read about, not to mention the latest technological ...
