On your sixteenth birthday, how would you feel about being forced to have the surgery to become pretty?
Would you feel like Tally—looking forward to being beautiful and bubbly—or like Shay—wanting to escape the surgery and stay ugly, but remain herself?
If your best friend asked you not to have the surgery, what do you think you would have chosen to do? What elements of the Smoke remind you of a camping trip you've taken or one you've seen on TV or in a movie? What advice would you give the Smokies about living in the wild? Tally has three important guys in her life: Peris, David and Zane.
How does her relationship with each of the three affect her decisions at different points in the story? Which of the three do you think made the greatest impact on Tally? Compare Tally's society with our society today.
What are the similarities between Dr. Cable's controls and our own government? Just as Tally and her friends were brought up learning about the failure of the Rusties' society, what lessons can be learned from the future portrayed in the series?
The author created new worlds, new technology, and new language for the books. Which of Tally's futuristic possessions—a hoverboard, a sneak suit, SpagBol—would you like to own? What were your favorite slang words in the series? What do you think was the pivotal point in each of the four books?
What would you change about them? What are Tally's strongest assets and her tragic flaws? What about Shay?
Is Dr. Cable a protagonist or an antagonist? At what points in the series does she seem more good than evil or more evil than good? 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.
Back then Specials were a sinister rumor - frighteningly beautiful, dangerously strong, breathtakingly fast. Ordinary pretties might live their whole lives without meeting a Special.
But Tally's never been ordinary. And now she's been turned into one of them: a superamped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid.
The strength, the speed, and the clarity and focus of her thinking feel better than anything Tally can remember. Most of the time.
