Extras is a young adult science fiction novel written by Scott Westerfeld. The novel was published and released by Simon & Schuster on October 2, 2007, and is a companion book to the Uglies series. However, Extras differs from its predecessors in that its protagonist is fifteen-year-old Aya Fuse, not Tally Youngblood. Despite the fact that Youngblood is not the main character, she still appears in the book's later chapters in a major role. The book was received well by critics such as James Hynes.

Scott Westerfeld is the author of the Leviathan series, the first book of which was the winner of the 2010 Locus Award for Best Young Adult Fiction. His other novels include the New York Times bestseller Afterworlds, the worldwide bestselling Uglies series, The Last Days, Peeps, So Yesterday, and the Midnighters trilogy. Don't have a Kindle?

A: Each book in the Uglies series will have more of that story. But the short version is that the Rusties (who are us, basically) were too dependent on oil. One day, a bacteria was created that changed the nature of oil and made it wildly unstable

A: Each book in the Uglies series will have more of that story. One day, a bacteria was created that changed the nature of oil and made it wildly unstable. As this oil-bug spread, everyone’s car exploded, as did the oil fields we were all fighting over. Food didn’t get delivered to cities, planes stopped flying, and transportation in general broke down. Relatively few of us survived. Uglies takes place a long time later.

Uglies Book 1). Of course, Tally thought, you'd have to feed your cat only salmon-flavored cat food for a while, to get the pinks right. The scudding clouds did look a bit fishy, rippled into scales by a high-altitude wind. As the light faded, deep blue gaps of night peered through like an upside-down ocean, bottomless and cold. Any other summer, a sunset like this would have been beautiful. But nothing had been beautiful since Peris turned pretty.

Fame

It's a few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime. Without those strict roles and rules, the world is in a complete cultural renaissance. "Tech-heads" flaunt their latest gadgets, "kickers" spread gossip and trends, and "surge monkeys" are hooked on extreme plastic surgery. And it's all monitored on a bazillion different cameras. The world is like a gigantic game of American Idol. Whoever is getting the most buzz gets the most votes. Popularity rules.

As if being fifteen doesn't suck enough, Aya Fuse's rank of 451,369 is so low, she's a total nobody. An extra. But Aya doesn't care; she just wants to lie low with her drone, Moggle. And maybe kick a good story for herself.

Then Aya meets a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks, yet are deeply secretive of it. Aya wants desperately to kick their story, to show everyone how intensely cool the Sly Girls are. But doing so would propel her out of extra-land and into the world of fame, celebrity...and extreme danger. A world she's not prepared for.

I love reading Young Adult Fiction and after seeing this book as a recommendation from other books I've enjoyed, I jumped right in. The plot and characters seemed intriguing, but the book started off very slow. I thought it would pick up but it never did. I just couldn't finish it, I felt like this was too Young adult for me. I couldn't get past the easy read, words like "Uglies,Pretties & Littlies" and I felt no no real suspense or development. Overall I think I just felt too old to read it or enjoy it. This is a very young read.

Just to give everyone an idea of where I'm coming from, I love sci-fi and my favorite novels are Harry Potter and Fahrenheit 451. Reading the summary and many reviews, this seemed like it would be a great sci-fi/dystopian/fantasy novel aimed at young adults so I did not hesitate to buy it.

But this book was just plain awful. I kept thinking it would get better but it didn't and the end couldn't come quickly enough.

The writing was like that of a middle schooler with this being the first sentence: "the early summer sky was the color of cat vomit." I know some will argue that the choice of words was just for a "deeper meaning" and to "set the tone" but I believe it is just a prime example of his inadequacies as a writer.

I found none of the characters likable nor relatable and just wanted all of them to stop complaining. I really just cringe every time I see the name Tally in anything because she is, to me, one of the most detestable characters in fiction. Ever.

Lastly, Westerfeld spent as much time as possible criticizing our present civilization for how stupid we are and how we're destroying everything.

I dropped this book in the trash the moment I finished reading, which I've never done before. This is the most poorly written, condescending, and insipid book I've ever had the misfortune of reading. Stay as far away from it as possible!

Tally Youngblood is Ugly and the worst part is that her best friend, Peris, just turned Pretty. Therefore, they have to cut off all communication and Peris has to start a new life among the Pretties. It is a fun transition as the newly minted Pretties party nonstop while the Uglies sit in purgatory waiting their turn. She decides one night to sneak out and surprise Peris by dropping in to say hi, even though the consequences may be severe.

But Peris is completely different, not just physically. The disappointing trek back to Uglytown has her crossing paths with Shay, a fellow Ugly sneaking to see her friends who had just transitioned. The two of them form a friendship that has them both testing their beliefs and their newfound friendship.

I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed this book! I was introduced to it by the Young Adult Book Club that I joined recently and was able to pick it up at my local library. It was easy to breeze through and once the setup is described in detail, then the action really picks up. I have already recommended this book to a 13 year old that I babysit as I think it is geared more towards his age group. Also because the use of hoverboards made for an exciting adventure. Despite not being in that age group anymore, I still found myself connecting with these characters. I remember being swayed by new friends when I had other plans in place. I remember the naïveté of that age where you believe that adults can be trusted and the world is a certain way for a good reason. I also remember the sharp pain that comes when your crush is crushing on someone else, or the pull when your friend's crush is crushing on you.

Another point that I really liked about this book is how Tally's potential and anger builds slowly. She initially did not want to be part of the "Smoke" but was forced to be in order to be allowed to turn into a Pretty. The experience leaves her so jaded and rightfully so!

I would recommend this book for those in the early teens or older who can understand a bit better.

I would not recommend this book for those who may be offended by malicious acts, manipulation, espionage, plastic surgery, rule-breaking, and murder. I did not notice anything sexual in nature nor any foul language or graphic violence.

Please note: This book does end on a cliffhanger!
