- The Smoke
- Special Circumstances
The Smoke- The Smoke is where runaway uglies go because they don't want to turn pretty.
Special Circumstances- Special Circumstances is a place where people get interrogated and it is like a hospital too.
Uglyville- Uglyville is where you grow up once you reach the age of 12 until you turn 16 when you turn pretty.
Antagonist- Dr. Cable is the Antagonist. She is a special trying to blackmail Tally to give up where the Smoke is or NEVER turn pretty.
Others- Shay is important because she is Tally's best friend and she is the one Tally had to go get from The Smoke. David is also important because he is the one who runs the smoke plus he helps try to break out the people from Smoke out of Special Circumstances.
What advice would you give to the main character? Why? I would tell Tally to convince Shay not to go to The Smoke and to not give up on making sure she doesn't go away. I would tell her that because if Shay hadn't gone to The Smoke then Tally could have been pretty and living life to the fullest in New Pretty Town.
If I could change something about this book what would it be and why? I would change the helicopters in the book. I would change that because it is in the future and there wouldn't really be any helicopter around, plus there are many other crazy things from the future that could replace the helicopter.
