Uglies, Pretties, and Specials

Another set of books that convinced me completely were Uglies and Pretties (both Simon Pulse, 2005) by Scott Westerfeld.  Books 1 and 2 of this trilogy could be our world in the future or could be another world entirely.  I devoured them one after another.  I worried and anguished along with Tally Youngblood and her friends and dreaded what had to come next in Tally’s life.  I waited anxiously for Specials (2006) to be available.  I talked about the two books I’d read to anyone who would listen.  Specials finally arrived and again other things were shoved aside so I could read.  Do Tally and her friends win? 
I don’t want to spoil it for you by giving an answer, but I was disappointed with some preachiness at the very end of the book.
