Book Review: Bogus to Bubbly by Scott Westerfeld

Bogus to Bubbly: An Insider's Guide to the World of UgliesISBN:  1416974369 (ISBN13: 9781416974369)
Release date:  October 21st, 2008
Publisher:  Simon Pulse
Read from February 21st to March 6th, 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
My review:

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.
