    This was a quick, exciting read. Great characters and a fast moving plot. I couldn’t put it down.

    **Thank you to Book Expo and Scholastic Press for making this advanced reading copy available to my friend, Sarah... and thank you Sarah for letting me read it first! This short review was not influenced at all by any of the above!**I gave up on the Uglies series at the beginning of Book 3 ("The Specials") because I grew bored. I'm glad that I didn't know this was a continuation of that series before I started to read "Imposters" because I probab...

    I can’t believe how great this was. I didn’t dare hope it would be as good as the first three books but it’s awesome - including answering questions about how the world organizes after the mind rain.
  • Rayna
    This is the first Westerfeld novel I’ve ever read and it is 100% a 5/5 read for me.

    I received this advanced readers copy from my library director, who scored it at Book Expo America.Rafi and Frey are the president's twin daughters, but the public only knows about Rafi. Frey has been trained to protect Rafi her whole life. Rafi is only allowed to appear in public during heavily secured events, while Frey poses as Rafi when there is any possibility of an assassination attempt. But now their father wants Frey to pose as Rafi while...

    I never finished the Uglies series so I was a little confused starting out (my fault), but this still gave me the honey nut feelios.So, uh, when's the next book??
  • J. A. Goetz
    When I first read Scott Westerfeld was expanding the Uglies series, I was over the moon, and a little nervous. I hold the original Uglies trilogy near and dear to my heart. I read Extras, Mind-Rain, and Bogus to Bubbly with sheer delight. I've loved everything Westerfeld has written since, but could a new story in Tally Youngblood's world live up to my expectations? It's been years since the Mind-Rain, and Tally isn't around to save anyone. While...

    This book was so good!! And that ending! 😱😱😱 The wait for book 2 is going to feel eternal! 😭 A friend of a friend sent me this extra ARC she got and I was so excited to read it!! I marathon-re-read the Uglies series (which I LOVED when I read it back in college) before reading this one. I had been wanting to re-read those books since these additional books were announced! So I'm glad I did, and I'm glad my memory was refreshed, but yo...

    I received this (signed and personalized!! 🤩😍🙌🏻) ARC at Book Expo America after being one of the first people on line at Scott Westerfeld’s autograph line. The Uglies Series are my favorite books period. This book does not change that at all. I put off reading it for so long because I knew I wouldn’t be able to read it for the first time ever again. I also knew that not only would I have to wait for the sequels to come out, I woul...

    Let me start off by saying that I do not read YA books almost ever, but I did read every uglies book as they came out, so I decided to read the ARC of impostors to review it. Although this story is far removed from the events of Uglies, the world feels similar. The language is very similar (words such as bubbly). They mention objects that were mentioned in the original series, such as "spagbol", which if you don't remember, is a survival food whe...

    A fantastic read. I've read Uglies, but not in quite a long time, and I still was able to follow this perfectly. I'm very eager to know what happens next! I'll have to watch out for the next one, hopefully not too long from now.Receiving an ARC did not affect my review in any way.He takes my right hand. Something electric goes through those knitted bones. "Don't apologize, Rafi. And don't worry. I'll make sure Jefa keeps her promise."He touches h...

    The readership of the Uglies series won't be able to contain themselves with this offshoot in which the mind-rain threw the world in a different direction and bubblyheaded pretties no longer rule. Societies are now digging up and using the metal, but nothing is ever perfect and certainly not in Rafia and Frey's family. Their father, the leader, has raised Frey to be a deadly assassin body double for her twin sister, Rafia, who is his prized posse...
