THE WORLD OF UGLIES, SET IN OUR NOT-SO-DISTANT FUTURE, is a complex place filled with bubbly technology and lingo, yet bogus rules about status and appearance. That's why a guide to the world of uglies has been requisitioned from the hole in the wall. Inside you'll find:
A rundown on all the cliques, from Crims and Cutters to tech-heads and surge-monkeys
The complete history, starting with the destruction of the oil bug to the launch of Extras in space
How all those awesome gadgets came to be: hoverboards, eyescreens, skintennas, sneak suits...
PLUS an exclusive look at Scott Westerfeld's first draft of Extras -- starring Hiro, not Aya.
And so much more, it's mind-wrecking.
This is a great book for fans of the Uglies series. It gives a lot of information about Tally and Aya's world, and I learned some cool things that aren't in the books. If you enjoyed the Uglies series, I definitely recommend checking this book out. There's even a chapter from the first draft of Extras that's in Hiro's point of view instead of Aya's that's really interesting to read.
