Science fiction author Scott Westerfeld visits the King's English Bookshop to discuss the latest book in his Uglies series, Imposter.
Frey and Rafi are inseparable . . . two edges of the same knife. But Frey's very existence is a secret.
Frey is Rafi’s twin sister—and her body double. Their powerful father has many enemies, and the world has grown dangerous as the old order falls apart. So while Rafi was raised to be the perfect daughter, Frey has been taught to kill. Her only purpose is to protect her sister, to sacrifice herself for Rafi if she must.
When her father sends Frey in Rafi’s place as collateral in a precarious deal, she becomes the perfect impostor—as poised and charming as her sister. But Col, the son of a rival leader, is getting close enough to spot the killer inside her. As the deal starts to crumble, Frey must decide if she can trust him with the truth . . . and if she can risk becoming her own person.
Scott Westerfeld is the author of twenty-two novels. Five are for adults, and the other seventeen for young adults. He is best known for the Uglies quartet, set in a future where cosmetic surgery is compulsory at age sixteen. He is also known for the Leviathan trilogy, a steampunk retelling of World War I, illustrated by Keith Thompson and featuring adventure, walking machines, and living airships; the Zeroes trilogy, written with Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti, about six teens with strange powers in a small city in California; and the Midnighters trilogy, about five teenagers for whom time freezes every night. My standalone works include four novels set in contemporary New York: So Yesterday, Peeps, The Last Days, and Afterworlds.
