'A world full of wonder and menace.' - Jack Heath
'Classic Westerfeld. A wild, edge-of-your-seat ride that will blow your socks off.' - Lili Wilkinson
When the world sees Frey, they think they see her twin sister Rafi. Frey was raised to be Rafi's double, and now she's taken on Rafi's role as the first daughter of Shreve... without anyone knowing. Her goal? To destroy her father - the dictator of Shreve.
With the world watching and a rebellion rising, Frey flees to the city of Paz, where citizens regulate their emotions through an interface on their arms. But Frey's father has destructive plans even for the City of Peace. Paz is an easy place to get lost... and also an easy place to lose yourself.
As the city comes under a catastrophic attack, Frey must leave the shadows and enter the chaos of warfare - because there is no other way for her to find her missing sister and have her revenge against her murderous father.
Shatter City continues to explore the struggle for freedom in the Uglies universe with heart-stopping action in the brilliant Impostors series.
