Little Brother - Cory Doctorow

Hey Guys!!!
Hope you're all well and enjoying Quicksand still!

Today i'm talking about a brand new book in our libraries called Little Brother. Now, if you have any interest in computers and technology, I can guarantee you'll enjoy this twisty novel, as it is filled with computer technology lingo. It has everything! It's suspenseful and intriguing, and really hard to put down.

The main character is Marcus, and the novel follows the story of him and his friends after a terrorist attack in their city, San Fransisco. The group are mistakenly apprehended as suspects in the attack, and are questioned and probed for information. Once they are finally let go, they return to find San Fransisco has been taken over by government agents in the interest of 'public security'.
Marcus decides enough is enough, it's time to put an end to the invasion of privacy. IT'S TIME TO TAKE ON THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY.
It's a political, hilarious, mysterious, and completely enjoyable!

Nick.
