Uglies Chapter 41

By Scott Westerfeld

Chapter 41

Familiar Sights

  • Except for a storm that keeps Tally and David camping for three days, they make pretty good time to the city.
  • Once they're in the city, it's Tally who gets to be the guide. ("Here's where to get the best hot dogs, here's where they give you brain damage," etc.)
  • They go to see Special Circumstances, which is protected by a fence—well, "a sensor wire" alarm (63). But Tally and David come up with a plan to ride their hoverboards far over the top wearing bungee jackets.
  • So this is how fun little tricks turn into revolutionary actions.
