    DescriptionThe ultimate tale of teen rebellion - one seventeen-year-old against the surveillance state. Big Brother is watching you. Who's watching back? Marcus is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works - and how to work the system. Smart, fast and wise to the ways of the networked world, he has no trouble outwitting his high school's intrusive but clumsy surveillance systems. But his whole world changes when he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison, where they're mercilessly interrogated for days. When the DHS finally releases them, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state, where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself.

    Review quote
    'I'd recommend 'Little Brother' over pretty much any book I've read this year. Because I think it'll change lives. It's a wonderful, important book' Neil Gaiman 'Cory Doctorow's novel could hardly be more relevant, scary and eye-opening ... seriously entertaining.' The Times 'A cracking read' Guardian 'A well structured and superbly executed thriller with breakneck pacing and an emotional payoff to boot. Engaging, thought provoking, and at times harrowing.SciFi Now 'An entertaining thriller and a thoughtful polemic on Internet-era civil rights ... a terrific read' New York Times 'A compulsive and chillingly credible read ... would make a great discussion for any reading group' New Books 'A tale of struggle familiar to any teenager, about those moments when you choose what your life is going to mean.' Steven Gould, author of 'Jumper' 'A timely and at times frightening read that is sure to resonate with a generation of computer-savvy teens, but also with those who have never heard of an arphid or re-built a hard drive' Sun Herald (Australia) 'Doctorow's ambitious set-up spawns a fast-paced tale of triumph ...rife with snappy dialogue and breathtaking scope ... an exceptional, eye-opening novel that everyone should read' Canberra Times
