About the book
It’s a few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime. Without those strict roles and rules, the world is in a complete cultural renaissance. “Tech-heads” flaunt their latest gadgets, “kickers” spread gossip and trends, and “surge monkeys” are hooked on extreme plastic surgery. And it’s all monitored on a bazillion different cameras. The world is like a gigantic game of “American Idol.” Whoever is getting the most buzz gets the most votes. Popularity rules.
As if being fifteen doesn’t suck enough, Aya Fuse’s rank of 451,369 is so low, she’s a total nobody. An extra. But Aya doesn’t care; she just wants to lie low with her drone, Moggle. And maybe kick a good story for herself.
Then Aya meets a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks, yet are deeply secretive of it. Aya wants desperately to kick their story, to show everyone how intensely cool the Sly Girls are. But doing so would propel her out of extra-land and into the world of fame, celebrity…and extreme danger. A world she’s not prepared for.
First what an ENDING! Finish the whole series and it has been a emotional roller coaster but an crazy adventure just wow.
It Take me a few days to finish only because Aya had me wanting to poke my eyes out. I had to shut the book a few times just breath and yell ” Stop being a obsessive Kicking junkie”, but the ending made up for it.
Tho i really wish i could had more Tally and David moments in the book ( I ship them )
Uglies is a great YA series that i recommend to anyone that likes futuristic Science fiction books.
Scott Westerfelds writing will get you sucked in right away. His characters all have some kinda of story so you get to enjoy them in some kinda way.
Extras is based in japan where you get to follow the story of Aya a few years after the book specials ended. Aya is a kicker ( Kicker means people who seek story to be famous ) She tries to be famous cause she is just an Extra Which is people who are low on the face rank. When she hangs out with the sly girls she discovers something huge that would kick herself to fame.
Aya in the book kinda reminds me of Tally in the first book before everything happens.
And then there is Frizz. he can not lie he fixed his brain to where he can’t lie or keep a secret. Them two are really cute together. My new otps.
