Extras Book Review

The world is turning into a living YouTube. Floating cameras are everywhere, snooping around to find the hottest stories in hopes to have the highest face rank. Unfortunately for 15-year-old Aya Fuse, that's not working out. Having a face rank of 451, 369, Aya and her big, fat nose is an absolute nobody, a complete Extra – an ugly one at that. Not until Aya finds a hidden clique - the Sly Girls - does she finally have a chance at becoming the new celebrity. She can kick a new, groovy story about a group that nobody knows about! What Aya doesn't realize is that kicking this story may turn into more than popularity; in fact, it could trigger the most dangerous, troubling world since Tally Youngblood and the mind-rain...
Extras was a hard-to-put-down novel. Full of action, intrigue, amazing characters and a page-turning plot, I couldn't get an abundant fill. I especially liked how unpredictable it was. No matter how many inferences I made, none of them turned out to be true. I can't find anything that I didn't like about this book, except for the fact that the series has come to an end. This is an absolute must read, the best of the Uglies Series as well as the best series ever!! Oh how I wish that Scott wrote another book! (I wonder what it would be about if he did.) I recommended it to those of 11 and above due to a few kisses, smoking/drinking, partying, and violence. It puts out a great positive message about popularity and self-esteem, includes education values and positive role models, and gets the gears turning in the brain. Excellent book: 5/5.

  1. Your summary saw very good. I was quite interested especially when you tell us that she finally became happy but then things turn dangerous. I also liked how you show all the books in the series at the end, good job.
