Praise
"A thought-provoking add=on to the Uglies series...Westerfeld excels at showing the emotional underpinnings of a fame economy: Aya experiences obscurity panic, feeling 'unreal' unless her actions are recorded."
"Westerfeld shows he has a finger on the pulse of our reputation economy, alchemizing the cult of celebrity, advertising's constant competition for consumer attention, and social networking technology like MySpace into a post-apocalyptic Japanese atopia that will engage gear-heads and philosophers alike."
"With its combination of high-stakes melodrama, cinematic action and thought-provoking insight into some really thorny questions of human nature, the new novel, like its predecessors, is a superb piece of popular art, reminiscent less of other young adult books than of another pop masterpiece, the revived BATTLESTAR GALACTICA."
From the Publisher
First Line "Moggle," Aya whispered. "You awake?"
Annotation With the author's trademark extreme style, constant data feeds, fame obsession, and intriguing danger swirl through Scott Westerfeld's fourth book in the bestselling Uglies series. Spiked with futuristic techie talk, EXTRAS follows 15-year-old Aya Fuse's attempts to rocket from being an "extra"--someone without any fame--to a high-ranking kicker (blogger). When she meets the Sly girls, a risk-taking gang with a fierce desire to remain unknown, Aya is certain she's fallen onto the most fame-making story ever. But when they make a discovery that threatens to destroy the whole city, Aya finds that she's in over her head. Westerfeld is also the author of PEEPS. A 2007 New York Times Notable Book.
