These days it's all about the fame.
As if life isn't hard enough when you're fifteen, Aya Fuse's face rank of 451,369 is so low, she's a total nobody. An Extra. But when she meets a clique of girls who pull crazy, dangerous tricks in secret, Aya sees a way to get her popularity rating to soar...
Aya is sure she's destined for a life in the spotlight, and if she can just 'kick' the story to show everyone how intensely cool the Sly Girls are, then the spotlight will be on her.
But is Aya really prepared to be propelled out of Extra-land and into a world of instant fame, celebrity... and extreme danger?
