In one video, I remember John discussing book recommendations, however when he mentioned The Uglies series, he mentioned it as a trilogy, as in he's only read the first three. However, I also own one more, called Extras. It's a bit weird, and not as good as the first book, which is personally my favourite. It has mixed reviews on goodreads, but it isn't too bad.
Here's what it is:
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. " The world is like a gigantic game of "American Idol." Whoever is getting the most buzz gets the most votes. Aya Fuse's rank of 451,369 is so low, she's a total nobody.
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.
For those unfamiliar with Uglies, it's about a teenager called Tally Youngblood, who lived in a world where every 15 year old must get surgery in order to be pretty and fit in with the Pretties, who live separately to the Uglies. However, her friend Shay brings her on a separate path and brings her into a rebellion.
It's actually pretty interesting, the differences and the relationship between Tally and Shay.
But anyway, what I want to know is, to those who've read either the main series and/or Extras, what do you think? To those not, do you want to?
