Summary
Marcus Yallow, a seventeen-year-old high school student and computer guru, and his friends cut school, only to be caught up in a terrorist bombing. Worse yet, Marcus and his friends are secretly taken by Homeland Security as suspected terrorists. When Marcus and his friends finally get out of prison, they find that Homeland Security is monitoring everything and everybody--in the name of national security. San Francisco has become a prison state. Marcus vows to take down Homeland Security and get back the freedoms promised by the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
Critique
Engaging, realistic, disturbing, with just enough computer geekdom to make it qualify as Science Fiction. This is not just a book for teens and Sci-Fi aficionados, but a book everyone should read. I could not put this book down. Highly, highly recommended.
