Uglies Chapter 21 Summary

Firestorm

  • The white flowers are burning all around Tally, which is one sort of alarm clock that you can't hit the snooze button on.
  • Tally runs through the fire, trying to get to the river and her hoverboard.
  • But just when she's flying over the river in her hoverboard, she sees one of those Rusty flying machines, which is spreading fire all over. Which seems really dumb to Tally.
  • The flying machine also knocks Tally off her board into the river.
  • And some masked people pick her up. Their masks give them "bug eyes." Which is also the name of the next chapter. How convenient.
