Author: Scott Westerfeld
Publisher: Simon Pulse (2008)
This book is essentially about this world Scott Westerfeld created which includes a nifty Hoverboard manual, a glossary of terms, and in depth walk through his inspirations for names, slang, and anything else you can think of that you ever wanted to know about the Uglies. Additionally, there’s an alternate beginning for Extras in the male’s perspective (I read this before Extras) and lots of other fun things.
This review will be short because I loved reading about Westerfeld’s inner workings and as a writer, this illuminated aspects of his writing process and what could work for me.
A fulfilling read from beginning to end. Check it out!
