really liked it
bookshelves: adventure, ya, sci-fi, not-graphic

Another Westerfeld winner. It was nice to see the way he extended what had been a complete trilogy by starting over with another protagonist, then drawing Tally back in from Aya's point of view. He did the same with his themes from the original trilogy as well, coming at them from another direction and providing added depth from the new perspective.

I think it would be interesting for someone who hasn't read them to start with this book and then go back to the other three. I wonder how that would change the experience?

“Even mocking people helped their face stats. In the reputation economy, the only real way to hurt anyone was to ignore them completely. And it was pretty hard to ignore someone who made your blood boil.”
