You don't think about us much, because we are invisible. Well, not exactly invisible. A lot of us have hair dyed four colours, or wear five-inch platform sneakers, or carry enough metal in our skin that it's a hassle getting on an airplane. Quite visible, actually, come to think of it'.
But we don't want signs saying what we are. After all, if you knew what we were up to, we couldn't work our magic. We have to observe carefully, and push and prompt you in ways you don't notice. Like good teachers, we let you think you've discovered the truth on your own.
And you need us. Someone has to quide you, to mold you, to make sure that today turns into yesterday on schudule. Because frankly, without us to monitor the situation, who knows what would get crammed down your throats?
It's not like you can just start making your own decisions, after all.
So Yesterday is an okay book. I suppose for those who think a lot about fashion, it would be an interesting book, but I found it a bit weak. The main characters are the people who find each new fashion and promote it, who make a living out of what is new and what's not. One of the characters is a girl, an innovator, who 'creates' each new fashion without even realising it, and when she gets herself caught up into the murky underworld of these fashion promoting people she finds it hard to escape. Especially with romace dogging her steps . . .
A somewhat decent book. If you liked the Uglies series, also by Scott Westerfeld, you might enjoy this. Probably about 13+. I wouldn't go scout it out, but if you saw it on the library shelf you could pick it up and try it. 3 out of 5.
