Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
Aya Fuse is fifteen and living in the time after the world of uglies, pretties, and specials. People don't care about how you look. They care about how famous you are. Everyone has a social status that is monitored 24/7. Aya is a miserable extra, someone that no one knows about and is just there. She wants to be famous so she kicks stories, or writes stories about others to get fame. When she finds a secret group, the Sly Girls, she plans on kicking a story about them and a weapon that could be the end of the world. Her story gets kicked and instantly she is extremely famous. Then, they need to save the world with just herself, a famous guy named Frizz (who she has a crush on), her brother Hiro, his friend Ren, and a couple other people who are so famous they can't be seen.

I loved Uglies, Pretties, and Specials. Extras was just as good as the rest. The setting is in the future, but it seems so realistic and I find myself in their world. Everything is described well and the book has great imagery. One problem was that in about the middle of the book it starts saying that she is talking in Japanese. I think that is a really cool thing, however, I don't recall it ever mentioning it earlier so I had no clue she wasn't talking in English! Westerfeld could have added that earlier on in the book for a better understanding. I recommend Extras to mostly girls who like futuristic suspense, but I think everyone would love it.
