Specials Paperback – 1 March 2022
Tally thought they were a rumor, but now she’s one of them. A Special. A super-amped fighting machine, engineered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid.
But maybe being perfectly programmed with strength and focus isn’t better than anything she’s ever known. Tally still has memories of something else.
Still, it’s easy to tune that out—until she’s offered a chance to stamp out the rebels of the New Smoke permanently. It all comes down to one last choice: listen to that tiny, faint heartbeat, or carry out the mission she’s programmed to complete. Either way, Tally’s world will never be the same.

The plots of each book follow the same format, Tally is in one state (Ugly, Pretty, Special) and loving it at the start of the book, she then finds out there is something wrong, she finds and loses a boy, falls out and makes up with Shay, discovers a darker plot by the government which changes the way she views the world and goes about trying to change it, usually by changing personality and letting everything happen all over again in the next book. Although this story has the most exciting plot of the series (the Diego and armoury parts of the story), the format is so tired that it just makes it uninteresting and predictable.
The main character of Tally goes through so many personality changes that we don't really know who we are meant to be routing for anymore. I particularly didn't like the way that self-harm was portrayed in any of the books. It's never really seen as a problem and in this book in particular there are some parts where it is heralded as the way to think clearly and solve problems - not something that I believe should be the moral in a Young Adult book.
There is another book to follow which I'd already bought, but it doesn't follow Tally's story line and although this may make it a better book, I'm not in any hurry to pick it up and start reading it just yet!
