Ever wonder who was the first kid to keep a wallet on a big chunky chain, or wear way-too-big pants on purpose? What about the mythical first guy who wore his baseball cap backwards? These are the Innovators, the people on the very cusp of cool. Seventeen-year-old Hunter Braque's job is finding them for the retail market.
But when a big-money client disappears, Hunter must use all his cool-hunting talents to find her. Along the way he's drawn into a web of brand-name intrigue-a missing cargo of the coolest shoes he's ever seen, ads for products that don't exist, and a shadowy group dedicated to the downfall of consumerism as we know it.
This book was awesome! My first dive into a Scott Westerfeld novel and loved the style and the story. The story was decently faced passed but had a couple slow points too, like any great novel does. I really enjoyed the diversity of the different charcters and how they grew and formed throughout the story. They learned more about themselves as a person and the people around them too. I will defiantly be diving into more of his books soon, like the uglies series. I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to all teen readers.
