Book review by Carrie R. This is the moment where my brain turned off completely. Aya knows she is on ulies cusp of celebrity. Merits are for schlubs who do the grunt work–ditch diggers, teachers, proctologists There aren’t enough merits in the exyras for me to be a proctologist David is an ugly, and has never had any surgery at all. Feb 22, Christina rated it it was ok. Can I give this no stars? To be honest, I liked Aya better than Tally. And all Aya wants is 1 become Pretty and 2 kick the biggest story ever.

Aya exras her story and kglies instantly famous, but is concerned when she receives a message from Tally Youngblood telling her to “run and hide”, and is nearly captured by the inhumans while trying to do so.
Yet for this book the philosophy is never questioned, and thus works beautifully. Aya was forced to lose Moggle in order to join the Sly Girls, but recovered it. She joins them, planning to betray them by kicking their story and become more famous than she’s ever dreamed of, but she soon finds something bigger – an explosive discovery that may change the face of the brand new world forever. This would be a stupid movie. A great way to discuss fame and tech obsessions with teens.
Do you think you’d ever rely on something that much? They help David and Tally with different missions and help with Special Circumstances. Aya, besides that, was quite annoying most of the time, and I feel like very few people actually learned any real lessons and changed in any real, deep way; other than being perhaps a bit less fame-seeking.
She lives in a society created to function with perfect-looking people who never have a chance to think for themselves. When these strange silver creatures were sighted and investigated, I thought they were going to be some crazy plot twist enemy race that were ugliew to change Aya and make her shed her flawed, selfish character. Personally I got attached to the characters, and this book makes me angry, happy, sad, and over all confused in a good way!

Westerfeld has generated another really interesting dystopian reality. I think that was Westerfeld’s aim though, so kudos. Meanwhile, they, the Cutters, would go to destroy the ships of the inhumans. I have read the entire series more than 5 times since like uglids so. This is a legitimate question. This also leads to great discussion points. Once, she came on the scene, I thought the writing became very sloppy.
Despite that Extras was written for an audience of teenage girls I rather enjoyed it. Crucially the characters were distinctive, credible and the sibling dynamic was so convincing. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

The trilogy, however, sets the framework for Extras is the fourth book in Scott Westerfeld’s critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling series originally it was a trilogy. Uglies Pretties Specials Extras Published October 2nd by Simon Pulse first published May 10th His mysteries and conflicts which send the protagonists, whether they are uglies, uglise, specials, or extras, are quite exciting and keep you reading to see the solution.
Tally the protagonist from the first three books entered this book about half-way through, and I was surprised to find her totally changed; whereas in the first three books she was a victim, thrown about by circumstances and surgeries, in this book she was suddenly a confident, rough-and-tumble leader.
The main character of the book. I’m glad I kept reading because it did tie in eventually.
I recently learned that more books are being released in uflies series and went to re-read the trilogy – and learned that it hasn’t been just a trilogy for a while!
