So Yesterday is one of the few books by Scott Westerfeld that isn’t part of a series. Self-contained and beautiful on its own, it another perfect read.
Shoes. Not just any shoes, but the coolest, most awesome shoes that you have ever seen in your life. These are just the kind of shoes that Hunter Braque is looking for. His job is to find the coolest trends on the street and he has found them in a pair of athletic shoes. Jen has found them too, however, and it’s a race (and eventually a collaboration) to get to them, but will they be able to get the shipment before the corporate goons do?
I thought this book was going to be stupid. I bought it because it was written by Scott Westerfeld, but I just let it sit on my shelf until I was out of all other books. I should have trusted Westerfeld to give me a great adventure, despite the object in peril being a shipment of athletic shoes.
Here’s the only quote I got from the book:
I’m sure there must be a ton of other quotes that I could have gotten from the book if I hadn’t gotten so into the story.
I am forever grateful to this book for the “Missing Black Woman” theory that he postulated. I see the Missing Black Woman everywhere now and I wonder why the advertising industry hasn’t noticed her yet.
Confused? Read the book and you won’t be!
