Fame is what Extras is all about. It's a few years after rebel Tally Youngblood took down the uglies/pretties/specials regime. Without those strict roles and rules, the world is in a complete cultural renaissance. 'Tech heads' flaunt their latest gadgets, 'kickers' spread gossip and trends, and 'surge monkeys' are hooked on extreme plastic surgery. The world is like a gigantic game of 'American Idol', whoever is getting the most buzz gets the most votes, popularity rules.
As if being 15 doesn't suck enough, Aya Fuse's rank of 451,368 is so low, she's a total nobody. An extra. Her only chance to escape extra-land is to find a big story to kick- something wild and unexpected.
Then Aya meeys a clique of girls who pull crazy tricks, yet are deeply secretive of it. But the Sly Girls are hiding something bigger, an explosive discovery that may change the face of the brave new world forever. If Aya kicks this story, she'll be propelled into the world of fame , celebrity and extreme danger. Is the world ready for this extra?
