When she is turned into a super-modelesque super-fighting machine, Tally, a former ugly, is ordered to keep the uglies down and the pretties stupid in a carefully engineered world of perfection where she refuses to play by the rules.
From the Publisher:
"Special Circumstances":

The words have sent chills down Tally's spine since her days as a repellent, rebellious ugly. 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. One tiny corner of her heart still remembers something more.

Still, it's easy to tune that out -- until Tally'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.

Annotation:
Completing the wild, inventive science fiction Uglies trilogy, SPECIALS finds Tally, once a brave ugly, then struggling pretty, condemned to a life as a special, part of an elite fighting unit called the Cutters. Though Tally revels in her surgically altered, weapon-like body, newly honed senses, and sharpened teeth, things just don't feel right. After an initial attempt at capturing the New Smokies--the anarchist rival gang Tally used to be a part of--she and her friend Shay make a shocking discovery that threatens to transform society completely. Will Tally be able to stay special, or must she shift her allegiances once again? Other books in the trilogy are UGLIES and PRETTIES.
