Extras, by Scott Westerfeld, is the fourth book in the so called Uglies Trilogy. This time, Aya Fuse is the one taking us through. Its been three years since the cure for bubbleheads came through, also known as the mind-rain, and the world is recovering. This city's economy is a little different, its based on popularity. Aya's life goal is to become famous by kicking, their word for publishing, a great story on her feed. If you're popular, you have anything you want and won't have to live the "extra" way. While searching for a story, she discovers the Sly Girls, girls thought to be imaginary before. These "Plain Jane" looking girls go on wild mag-lev riding trips and stay far away from feeds and popularity. Aya joins them and finds ways to film them and kick one of the most shocking and greatest stories. But she's got it all wrong, and is visited by the one and only Tally Youngblood. Her next visitor might not be for her own good though. But one question, what are they?

I must say I couldn't believe there was another book in the series! Westerfeld has given the word trilogy a whole new meaning. To be honest, I was a bit bored at the beginning of the book and if not for my dedication to the series, I would've stopped reading it. But then, the introduction into the new ways of life were done and things got interesting. I was pretty happy with this book but sad that the series is now, truly, over. I would recommend this book and series to teen girls because it is amazing and they would be interested in the story.
