"So yesterday" was written by Scott Westerfeld, the same author of The Uglies, The Pretties, etc. The genre of the story is fiction for young adults.

The main character's name is Hunter. Hunter has a special certain job that he does. He is a trendsetter. He finds cool new shoes, that could possibly set a trend. He even gets payed in shoes. Soon, after finding her cool shoe laces, he meets Jen, an innovator. Jen is a breath of fresh air to Hunter, and when Hunter's boss Mandy, disappears, Jen and Hunter become closer while going on a little adventure of finding her.

I thought that this book was okay. I thought that the beginning was kind of hard to get into. I didn't understand the roles of trendsetters, innovators, etc. right away. It all just seemed a bit confusing to me at first. However, towards the middle of the book it really picked up and became interesting. Around the middle of the book, the action really just picked up and it no longer seemed slow paced. Hunter and Jen were also unique and different characters. I think that Westerfeld did an excellent job of making both of them relatable to the reader. Even though the beginning was a bit boring to me, I kept on reading because I was interest in Hunter and Jen.
