Peeps is like a twist on a vampire novel. Very scientific, but also original and just freaking cool. The Last Days, it's sequel, is set in the same world and has a lot to do with music.

So Yesterday is a standalone novel about a guy whose job it is to seek out funky and cool fashion trends, and ends up finding some really neat stuff.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought this, haha.

I really loved the book, but the whole point of it was unclear to me.

WARNING ABOUT PEEPS:
Every other chapter or so Scott lets us know about a new and gross parasite or organism or creepy crawler that want's to crawl in our (or other animal's) bodies and snuggle in and possibly kill us.  Oddly by the third or fourth, I was no longer grossed out by it. Anyway, figured I'd put the warning here for anyone who bothers to read this BEFORE they dive into the book. lol.
