None of the books that came after “Uglies” was as well thought out and captivating. Aya is sweet and I think and many people westerfeeld relate with her, as she wants to be famous and be noticed for once. Aya and Frizz watch Tally and David escape from the party on a balcony before going to watch and possibly film the cutting of the cake. Ju I think you could read this book on it’s own. Aya is fifteen extrss old.


I also have to say that I find the idea of all these teenage characters—Aya is fifteen —doing and accomplishing all of this stuff on their own vaguely ridiculous, which officially makes me too old for these books. The word eventually gains new meaning as being an abbreviation of “extraterrestrial”. She has no idea why she wants to become popular and when she becomes a prominent “kicker” she begins grumbling and whining.

And it provides a slightly more upbeat ending for Tally and David, which I really appreciate. In this particular reality, your entire quality of life is dictated by how much fame you can acquire rather than how pretty your face is.

Eden reveals to Aya that she joined the Sly Girls to get away from her fame.

She adopts the nickname “Nosey” for Aya, in reference to her big nose, and all the questions Aya bugs the Sly Girls with.
