Reader reviewed by Manda

After reading the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, I was excited to read something else he'd written.  So Yesterday is about a Trendsetter named Hunter Braque.  He lives his life finding the next big thing, the next thing that will make him "cool".  He becomes friends with a Innovator named Jen and from then on they go on this wild ride to find Hunter's boss, whose gone missing and not get caught by the Anti-Client. All in all this was a thrill ride of a story.  Like the Uglies series, So Yesterday was another
fictional look into consumerism and trends.  I love that Westerfeld's writing is
geared towards someone with a mind and isn't just some brainless garbage. While being a great story, this book really makes you think about why you wear what you wear and why
fashion is the way that it is.  I definitely recommend this book to current fans of Scott Westerfeld and those reading his works for the first time who like to look outside the box.

Reader reviewed by two sided freek

So, I read the inside flap and I was like, oh so basically this is about shallow people who think they're cool. But once I started reading this book, I realized that it's surprisingly deep. So once I found out that this book is signed for a movie deal, it didn't come as a surprise. What I love about this book is that it can take the simplest thing as a new way to ties shoelaces and twist it into something so much more. The whole idea of this huge pyramid of cool seriously fascinates me. And the whole corporation is no less entrancing. Scott Westerfeld has pulled of something as shallow as how you dress, even if it does show your individuality, into a semi-sci-fi that grabs your attention and keeps you hooked on.
