Bogus to Bubbly

June 2nd, 2008

So you may remember from these three posts that I’ve been working on a guide to the Uglies universe. Well, I’m happy to say that the project is now real enough to have a title and a cover:

That familiar face is, of course, the model from the Uglies cover. In fact, it’s a photo from the same shoot, which almost made it onto the book. But at the last minute, the powers that be decided to switch to the cover we all know and love.

Fascinating factoids like this are what Bogus to Bubbly is all about: tons of background info on how the series came to be conceived, researched, written, and produced. It’s sort of a giant FAQ, in which I try to answer the thousand-or-so most common questions that I’ve been asked by fans over the years.

Among its many sections are the following:
Research notes on the science behind the series;
A massive history of the world (including the Rusty Crash and recovery);
Maps of Tally’s city and the greater continent;
Illustrations of various gadgets from the books;
A complete glossary, plus an essay on slang generation;
Mini-histories of all the cliques and derivations of the character names;
The definitive essay on the inspiration for the books;
An illustrated hoverboard manual!

Bogus to Bubbly doesn’t come out till October 21, and at the moment it can be pre-ordered only on Amazon, but I’m sure the other online booksellers will be listing it soon. And, of course, come October your friendly local bricks-and-mortar bookstore will be stocking them in quantity.

As that date gets closer, watch this space for sneak previews of Bogus content.

Did I mention the hoverboard manual?

    OMG! 2nd post! Scott-sama, I have your blog on my RSS feed, so I can check it every day. I can’t say I agree with this book; I like leaving more to the imagination, but I’ll definitely buy and read it anyone.

    Because I’ll totally make the Top 100 ;-)

    interesting. not as interesting as a guide to the Midnighters world (ha), but interesting.

    and i remember that cover! there was some post a long time ago about the two very different shots and how Uglies almost had this cover.

    very interesting….

    June 2nd, 2008 06:17

    that is totally fawsome!!! I cant wait. I have such a long list of books and now its going to be even longer! The cover is so fool too! And yes, serafina zane, a guide to midnighter’s would be great, well… not as great as the fourth midnighters book *hint, hint* *nudge,nudge*, but still great. I really don’t feel like finishing those two papers… I’m such a procrastinator. Oh and i have to memorize a french skit by tomoro, which im not going to be doing til’ lets say 10:00 pm

    I think that sounds awesome! :) October? Damn, I won’t be in america so I will have to wait till it comes out in Australia! Wait, I can order it on the internet! Ah, the wonders of technology
    A hoverboard manual sounds very difficult to draw and write, have fun Scott-la!
    Will there be short background stories on the chacters like Zane as an Ugly and Dr Cable…………….?
    I love Uglies! The other night I had just started reading Midnighters and I woke up in the middle of the night, and it was really quiet AND the moon was close to my room, so it was really blue, it was so creepy!!!
    I CAN NOT wait for this to come out! :)
    Love Joey-la

    Sweet! This is pretty exciting. I’ll have to try and put an advanced hold on it at the library. (Which has been sort of anti-advanced-holds, lately… grr. I mean, obviously I can put a hold on the second Spud book, but How To Ditch Your Fairy? Obviously not! Such discrimination…)

    Can’t wait for the book..again. I gave my brother Uglies about 4 months ago, and he started and finished reading it last week in about 4 days. He’s driving two hours to get Pretties this weekend [: He is now all excited for the guide too.

    hehe….I used fawsome in open conversation today…and got looked at really oddly. My reply was…It’s not my fault you don’t read.

    Wow, that was me being much too familiar with you… Hehe, but I’m so excited!
    When I first saw that cover, I thought the pine needles were hair and I thought ‘Wow, that *is* bogus hair.’
    But they’re not. So it’s all good.

    June 4th, 2008 01:52

    i just finished specials and in the back of the book it says there is an alternate ending and i went to the website it gives and there was the last chapter with commentary…does that count as the alternate ending or is there really an alternate ending that i missed out on?

  60. 60
    June 4th, 2008 02:28

    I tried to look for that too but i never did find it, brit. I dont know what they are talking about cause i never did see it.

    Today i have more service hours at my school. Yesterday i went for 5 hours and i folded about….hmm…..idk…..2 thousand shirts! we are having a uniform sale so i have to to work at it today but yesterday i had to fold the shirts for the sale today. and then tomorrow i have to go and pack the leftovers back up…while keeping inventory. OO, fun! then im done.

    I am on the last Pretty Little Liars book. I have less than half way to go!

    June 4th, 2008 05:56

    Oh, Kenzie…….I think it might depend on where you live but I’m not sure though, cuz in some places it’s illegal to bring a crow into your home because it’s considered a scavenger apparently and yada yada yada….all that stuff….It’s really ridiculous I think, cuz now they’re even considering blue jays scavengers which is a type of bird of prey so the law has good intentions I guess to protect the wildlife but I don’t think it was too well thought out, cuz what if it’s injured? seriously….*shakes head at lawmakers*

  64. 64
    June 4th, 2008 06:22

    ughh…. i hate drivers ed. it’s so brutally boring. seriously. my teach is like work alone!! no talking!! lets talk about my boring stories and how i can remeber them!! lol.. okay well maybe he doesn’t think they are boring but they are! and he especially shouldn’t be wasting our time when there isn’t a set amount of minutes we have to be in class… like you can’t miss more than four days… but like yesterday we got out at 1 o’clock when the class was suppose to be an hour longer. but today it was the full three hours of sitting in the same desk doing boring worksheets and him telling his lame stories. i have to go in an hour to go drive though. it’s gonna be scary. i’ve only drove once and that was in an empty parking lot. now i have to drive on the main streets. *shudders in terror* …poor towns people.

    well i’m starving.. haven’t eaten all day. so i’se gonna go. but before i do.. i gotta say i looovvee Twilight.. sorrys to those of you who can’t stand it… remember.. just an opinion. anyways. i’m pretty much addicted to the books. i read Twilight way too fast though.. i’m gonna be sad when i finish all three and then have to wait till August 2nd… which btw it’s already on preorder. :D okay. laters.

    June 4th, 2008 07:18

    June 4th, 2008 08:55

    ooooooooooooooooothat guide looks so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! yahooooooooooooooo!
    i hate waiting for books to come out, tho. i mean, gg3 isn’t comiong out for a year, inkdeath (third ink-book) isn’t coming out til october 7th, the third squad book (which heaven knows even if there will be one) i have no idea when, and now this book isn’t coming out til october 21!!!
    not to complain or anything, but
    WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO READ UNTIL THESE BOOKS COME OUT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
    i am at a loss and will mope until someone gives me a good book to read…
    jk. but still. i just finished the third ranger’s apprentice book…ya i cried in sadness at the end of the second one and i cried in happiness at the end of the third one. but the stinking library doensn’t have any available copies until 6/5. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. i need something to read!!!! sigh.
    w/e. i’ll go bug my older sis for suggestions. and emerge w/ a black eye. but o well. such is the life of a middle child.

  67. 67
    June 4th, 2008 08:57

    Dang it…now I already want a copy…

  68. 68
    June 4th, 2008 09:24

    AAAAHH!!! omz i am soooooo going to get that… or at least read it and then convince my parents that, considering it is one of my favoritest series EVER that thus it is worth buying. not that theyre likely to pay for it… but i can always hope… :) in any case, scott, i cannot even BEGIN to imagine how much extra work that is going to be for you… wow just from my own limited experience with attempting to do a basic mental sketch of tech, that is going to be sooo difficult (but sooo worth it when you see the happy smiles on all of our happy little faces… right?) cuz really, there are all those little details that you hoped the reader would invent him/herself… things that take too much work to plan out b/c the thing doesnt actually exist (yet)… specifics that are just soo hard to pinpoint… definitions of words (dictionary ones are bad enough, dont even get me started on slang)… ooh i am going to LOVE this!! thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!

    UMR-wa, I have a friend who has one big sister and 2 little ones, but the 2 little sisters are 6 years apart and both get treated like the youngest, you know, spoiled rotten
    and Kayla, my friend, is a lot like me, so she could get a black eye just by walking

    anyway, she’s at my house right now and she wanted to point out that middle children are normally the smartest (something we have theorized by examining her family and some of our other friends’ families (we couldn’t really find any pattern in mine, though))

  72. 72
    June 4th, 2008 09:52

    Ooh!! I forgot, yesterday was my birthday, im finally 13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    one of my friends from gymnastics whose younger than me claims that its unlicky, but i say its really lucky!!!! Yesterday the power went out at my school while we were all walking into the auditorium 4 the talent show. We all had to wait there for like 10 minutes and then they sent us back to class, but we couldnt get our books because of the dark so we didn’t do anything all day. Then at like lunch, or gym, cant remember which, the power came back on and we had the talent show, so we never went to 9th period. Who said 13 was unlucky??????????????????????????

    I just made a blog! And I didn’t tell them my last name so my dad can’t stalk me through it. Ha! Go look at my blog (click on my name).
    And then look at my LA class’s literary magazine and tell me what you think.
    Daughters of the Moon series by Lynne Ewing
    Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer
    Pendragon series by D.J. MacHale
    Those are some of my favorites, and since they’re series, they should keep you busy for at least two weeks, depending on how fast you read.

    YAY! I just started reading the Uglies Trilogy (kind of glad I started late so that I got all of the books at once!). In the Bogus to Bubbly book, will there be descriptions of Tally or David. I can picture them in my head, but the picture of what they really look like might be different for you. And I would really like to know what they are SUPPOST to look like…

    Uglies is a great YA Sci-Fi

    Im glad, as an adult, I picked up these books…

    June 5th, 2008 06:42

    yeah. i haven’t been around to talk much. i’m obsessed with Twilight series. in fact you could probably even say addicted.

    i cried when the Cullens left. :( i don’t know yet if they’ll be back… don’t tell me. or maybe i do want to know…. ughh… i’m so indecisive! but yeah. it was sad.
    —spoiler ends—

    Oh wow, your softball season’s just starting? Mine’s almost over! We only have the tournament left. And Kay-wa, let’s just say….there’s more books after New Moon….so I didn’t tell you but that’s your hint. Muaha!

  85. 85
    June 5th, 2008 08:29

    lol. thanks. makes me feel a little better. :)

    and yep we start later for some reason. i’m kinda glad though because with my dance recital and grad partys it’s tough to fit it all in. and our summer season is really short. like a month and a half long or so. and then i get a few weeks off and i start up again with the school team.

    June 5th, 2008 14:12

    yeah. it like takes over your life. seriously. it deprives me of my sleep. cuz i can’t stop reading. and finally i usually have to force myself to stop at 3 in the morning since i have to be up at 8:30 to get ready for drivers ed.

    lost our game. :( it got called in the fifth inning to lightining. and since we played 5 innings we don’t get a make-up game. it was close though. if we would have had one more inning we coulda won. i slid home and landed on a bat. painful much.

    so what position do you play TZ?

  99. 99
    June 6th, 2008 02:57

    ha ha yeah i know i finished extras in less than 6 hours!!! its totally awesome!!! do you think i should be debi-la or debi-wa??? someone help me i can’t decide!!!

  100. 100
    June 6th, 2008 03:09

    You’d be Debi-la; the rule is that you put “wa” if you have an “L” in your name and “la” otherwise. So I’d be Amy-la… or I would be if there weren’t already an Amy-la on here.

    Kay-wa I usually play second base but for some reason in the last game the coach put me at third so it was kinda weird cuz I’ve never played there before but it worked out cuz I tagged out some girl who was stealing and caught a pop fly (does little happy dance)
    Ooh! I stole home too to score the tying run and the stupid catcher freaking steps on me with her freaking cleats AFTER I tagged home, cuz I slid, and tries to argue with the ump. saying she tagged me, I’m out. I’m like dude what the heck?! And yeah but it counted(duh) but we lost by one in the last inning.

  102. 102

    Your sport talk is mind-boggling. I just do dance. Well, not during the summer but i did during the year. I think im gonna do gymnastics next year. idk. But during the summer im gonna make myself like jog and stuff. I have a phobia of fatness. I will lookup what it is called!

    Look what i found:

    “Fact: By the age of 13, sixty percent of all North American girls have dieted.”

    Thats weird. I mean…five year olds? Weird…

    i went driving again today. it was good. no crashing. :D this one girl who’s in my driving group ran up a curb though and almost hit a tree. it was freaky. and she was going in the center of the white lines taking up both lanes of traffic.

    i’m going to work at this camp tonight. should be fun.

I really want to start hip hop, but with violin, school, gymnastics i have no time. Plus my mom said no:( Im so amazed, this school year i read over 60 books! I remember when my dad used to make me read. Now if you dont know where i am look in places where the light is good. My brother despises books!

    June 6th, 2008 16:15

    yeah. i use to have to be forced to read too. and when i was in elementary school i would get the little “N’s” for needs improvement on my report card cuz my eyes had trouble tracking so we went to the doctor they wrote it off as a mental disability. and then my mom took me to see this place where i had to go once a week and they would like make me do all these eye exercises and after a few months i didn’t have to go anymore. but still mental disability my butt! i’d like to go back to that doctor and wave my perfect all A+’s, 4.0 GPA in his face for just writting it off like that. and so i got better and now i read fast or what i consider fast anyways. 500 pages in 3 days and that is with my busy schedule. pretty good for coming from reading a page for 15 minutes.

    Tally’s in Extras. Don’t worry. By the way, I’m only telling you this because I remember I was freaking out, too.
    I got 9/10 on that quiz. That was the strangest quiz I’ve ever taken.

Heh, “it’s been a few years since rebel Tally Youngblood brought down the Uglies/Pretties/Specials regime…” She brought down the UPS system. Tally brought down the UPS guys haha! But still, I CAN’T WAIT!!!! Hey Scott-la, are you gonna give a background story about David’s scar and how Special Circumstances got started?

  128. 128
    June 17th, 2008 10:11

    This book looks great! I already pre-ordered it on amazon. I really would like to see a map pf the city. It would help me visualize things a lot. For the person who posted above me- I think that a background story about David’s scar would be cool.

    Um… stop desperately clinging to your 15-minutes-of-fame already. The success you’ve recieved from UGLIES, PRETTIES and SPECIALS was enough — you were a #01 New York Times Bestseller! …Then came EXTRAS which was a huge fail. A really, really bad addition to what was an amazing trilogy.

    *AMANDA-LA’S COMMENT is a SPOILER*, by the way. Luckily I’ve read the ugles series already…
    I agree with amanda-la, zane’s better than david. I know, David was a really good guy, and both of them helped Tally and all, but I like Zane better. i think that if Zane hadn’t chickened out of going to the Smoke, he would have ended up with Tally. But I think that him dying was a good way to add drama and such to the series. Although i think Scott-la can now be considered a fictional character murderer…. lol jk scott-la.

    OMG, i absoloutly LOVE your books. they rock. I am doing an essay on Pretties. i think i could win this contest considering that i have read the first 3 books (uglies, pretties, and specials) over 3 times each. I love the way you write your books. they inspire me. since i read the uglies triligy it has inspired me to start writhig my own books.(short ones of corse)

    August 2nd, 2008 03:51

    anyother books?
    like new series coming out?
    i have nothing 2 do right now, or read till breaking dawn arrives in the mail =|
    my favorite series: uglies and twilight
    and they have both ended, but there will be another book for twilight its in edwards point of view of the 1st book, when he met bella.

    *hits send then walks over 2 book collect picking which 1 she would like 2 read over again*

    August 4th, 2008 05:08

    This really annoys me.NOT YOUR WORK!!
    I love it.You are one of my Favourite Authors.
    But ….I live across the pond, and stuff like this is..great, but I won’t get it for AGES.
    I have been searching for a copy of ‘So yesterday’ fo a while now, and the only way to get that -and this book,probably-is turning out to be off Amazon.
    Annoying, slow,bad for my local bookstore…etc.
    I am soo glad you decided to write this though!

  179. 179

    I don’t know exactly, i guess it’s because it’s the most exciting. Lot’s of twists in the plot.

    October 17th, 2008 11:01

    if i waz tally i would of probably done the same exsact things as her

  224. 224
    October 17th, 2008 11:03

    if i were tally i would of made way more mistakes.

  225. 225
    October 17th, 2008 11:07

    Hey guys.

    well DUH david is more real. He was an ugly… Unchanged by society. But Zane rules all =D

  226. 226
    October 17th, 2008 11:09

    ugh. Real is more important than anything.

  227. 227
    October 17th, 2008 11:13

    Oh please… Zane was totally awesomely PERFECT. And not just cause he was Pretty… he was so much more like Tally, and could relate to her better. They both helped Special Circumstances, both were friends with Shay… And more. He’s the most fawesome fictional guy out there. Closely followed by Edward… David ranks just about my fictional boyfriend Larry the Cuccumber. And that’s barely. In fact, he’s probably behind Larry. Out of Zane, Edward, Jonathan, Larry the Cuccumber, and David. In that order, too.

    October 17th, 2008 11:15

  230. 230
    TYC Leader
    October 17th, 2008 11:21

    ugh…hmmmm…i dunno who i like better. David’s real and really likes Tally and saw all the good things inside her and wat she could and would become. Zane was kinda independent and did things without her, but he was with her when they found the cure and became cured with her and he actually told her that he loved her, david didn’t do that, but then again he didn’t have to… it was kinda just unspoken. *sigh* also David was with her thru EVERYTHING!!! (ok i guess we can cut Zane slack coz of his brain damage but…) David knew more about Tally…Zane and her only knew each other for a month and at the time they got together they both had the lesions sooo… that makes a big difference. David also keeps Tally icy the whole time…he helps her rewire herself…better than cutting did.
    hmmm… guess i’m a David fan. (even though Zane is extremely HOT!!!! but i think David is too…in his own way)

  231. 231
    October 17th, 2008 11:25

    hmmm….David is better than Zane just cuz he’s David. I mean, that’s like trying to say that whats-his-name beats Bergman. Just cuz they’re new doesn’t mean that they’re better. And larry is the oldest, therefore he wins!!! lol. Just kidding. David wins cuz he saw the real Tally instead of how Zane just trusted her that she would be herself ’round him. But that’s just how I’m thinkin of it.

  232. 232
    October 17th, 2008 11:39

    TYC Leader, remember, Zane was the reason Tally stayed “bubbly.” She didn’t GET the cure, only Zane did.

    I dunno, David doesn’t seem to have it. Whatever “it” is. I don’t even know, but apparently Zane has it, while David doesn’t.

    I gotta go, shower then snack then bed 0_o stupid school… Making me get up at 6:20 in the friggin’ morning… Night.

  233. 233
    October 17th, 2008 11:44

    6:20? that’s crazy. i wake up at 7:00. and i have to be out the door by 7:20. Which leaves 20 minutes to get ready for school. Which is almost too much time. I could get ready for school in five minutes if I had to.

  236. 236
    October 18th, 2008 06:25

    David is so not better than Zane. I think David is way meaner to Tally than Zane, but anyway, Tally loves Zane, and she can’t be with David just because she was with him first. She can’t really remember him, which isn’t her fault. She can’t just forget Zane, like she said so in Pretties.

  237. 237
    October 18th, 2008 06:27

    ive never read the books. what r they about?

  238. 238
    TYC Leader
    October 18th, 2008 07:10

    Emily-wa: Tally’s lesions never truly set in. she was saying unpretty things before her and Zane got together. and David was with her for everything. huh, but Zane was the only reason Tally ended up going to the Smoke coz he told SC about it but then again Tally pretty much did the whole mindrain by herself (GO TALLY!!!) and even if Tally told Zane that she loved and not David it doesn’t matter. David and Tally’s love didn’t have to be written in words…it was just understood, but was Zane and Tally’s love understood without words…NO!!! he kinda just used her to get cured and something like that would bring people together. David and Tally got together on their own without something bringing them together except for the fact that they were both runaways who wanted the cities to change…but everyone in the Smoke wanted that. soooo…that’s all i have to say.

    GREEN DAY!!! <3

    well.. i’m ALWAYS late on these things! oh well…. time to go bug my mom to take me to Chapters :)

    i still cant believe i found Uglies at my school book fair!
    i tried to get EVERYONE to read it … some did most just looked at me like huuuhh?

    i LOVE the cover of this book too! i did think it looked like the one off of Uglies … then when i read it was going to be it cover i was like OHHH.
    i like both covers but i am glad the current picture is the cover.. it was the reason i picked up the book, and the title! i LOVE all the titles … they make you want to pick up the books just to read what its about and the reason for it.

    anyways … i’ve written a small blog here

    Okay, so i’m trying to convince my brother of the history of halloween and that it isn’t the whole demonic one that they tell you ’bout in school. that it’s really a Celtic holiday that originated in Europe and all that…..gosh, my brother is tricky to convince….just cuz his teacher told him a bunch of stuff….so now i’m a “dude, halloween started 2000 years ago….now it’s an excuse to dress up like your favorite book character…..get it?” yeah….

  249. 249

    *I can not believe you actually put this much time into ONE book series. I am happy you did though so I could see the background of the uglies Series.*

    *I got so sad when Zane died cuz they were REALLY cute together but I wish she just never broke up with David and was just with him the whole time.*

    *I just read So Yesterday and I LOVED it*

    *Jen and Hunter were so cute together*

  274. 274
    January 22nd, 2009 15:59

    I loved this. Knowing that flash tattoos are kinda real is really fascinating. Also it never really paid attention, but when you said that the last word of each book had the name of the next book was really cool. I also re-read Pretties (Zanes in it, and not dead, so i read it). In chapter Rain the last word of the first sentence is “mind”. I thought it was really cool because he mentioned the mind-rain before it actually took place, or it could’ve just been a coincidence, but either way it is really cool. Also Zane and David mean beloved is so weird.

    These books were amazing, and its really sad that he stopped writing them, but So Yesterday seems pretty cool. I might read it.

    I liked bogus to bubbly :] i thought it was very informative, if thats even a word? But i will admit i didn’t like the maps and pictures :[ i thought they'd be more detailed with scott-la's descriptions and everything. But i guess my imagination will have to do for now...but it was way happy-making with a few bogus pictures :]

    Are you going all pretty-minded fake or is this real? I am obsessed with this series. Every cave i go into must be checked for secret holes LOL! Unfortunatley though i am displeased with the last book. The extras world is specials crazy and totally not icy. Heck with Aya-chan lets go back to Tally-wa! I want to know what goes on with her and David! We need lots more of these books! Thanks Scott!

    yay i love seeing how many people like reading and read as much as me
    scott-la your my favrit writter and i need more books written by u.but i cant beleive zanes dead he was my fav character and tally loved him romance novels dont work that way.know a have a book to look forward to wich is city of fallen angels by cassandr clare its from the series city of bones my fav book but were can i find bogus to bubbly and peeps and were can i find more books by u aaaaaaahhhhhhh i am so exited for thise book

    the only reason girls like twilight is because of the damsel in distress if your looking for a good romance novel read city of bones

  316. 316
    March 16th, 2010 04:48

    i hate the earlier comments about twilight .also edward and jacob all they were doing was hearting bella if i were her i would have broken up whith him right when stuff started going wrong and would have ditch jacob.if you want to read a good romance novel read city of bones. and finally jace beats edward jacob david and even zane.

  317. 317
    March 16th, 2010 07:58

    sorry about that earlier its just i am so tired of twilight and city of bones and uglies are so much better but once i was hooked on them but than i fou

    *Spoiler, btw*
    Scott Westerfeld is amazing! I don’t know how he made up this world! It’s a brilliant idea, :) and a brilliant story. I wonder how long it took him to write each of the books…hmm. And, I loved Zane! =( But, I really like how she ends up with David too :) Because, I like how she’s tough and everything, and she ends up dating an ugly. I liked the twist :)

  319. 319
    March 17th, 2010 08:20

    September 5th, 2010 18:58

    I got this before I even started reading the series. Well… this and extras. IT WAS A GOOD DEAL OKAY! Less money to spend, so I took the opportunity and got it when I had the chance to. And I knew I was going to end up reading the books anyway, so. I just started reading it. It’s pretty awesome….

    i got this at my bookfair not knowing wat it was and it was really interesting a year later (this year i read uglies slowly starting to realize this was the book i bought a year ago so i understood things better than most people would read it before the series its alot easier

    September 29th, 2010 22:19

    I love these books. I’ve read them all. I’m a very picky reader but when I picked up this book one day and started reading it I thought it was the best book I have ever read….not even twilight was that good to me. Congrats and good luck in life. hope your movie goes well.

    I have read this book it explains so much.
    I really liked the first draft of extras. But I think that Scott-la should rewrite the 4th book from Tally’s point of view.

  337. 337
    November 25th, 2011 21:37

    I love all of Scott-la’s books! Their SO bubbly! Teehee
    I like how he brings in a new set of characters and setting.
    Tally is still in the story but it’s focused more on Aya
