Hunter is (what else?) your average, everyday cool hunter, melting in with the landscape as he spies out the latest trends and gets rewarded by the marketing machine. That is, until he meets Jen, an Innovator who makes him think about the process, not just participate in it. The two of them quickly become embroiled in a possible kidnapping and the biggest marketing scam of all. Is it devious or genius? The two of them have to find out, if it doesn't get them killed first.

Once again, a fast-paced read from Westerfield who once again takes on media, materialism and the superficiality of modern culture only more directly this time. Like the Uglies series, the message is pretty darn overt but somehow it doesn't make the story a bit less enjoyable.
Highly recommended for fans of his, Cory Doctorow, fans of M.T. Anderson's Feed, and some Nancy Farmer readers perhaps.
