About the Book
"A worthy younger sibling to Orwell's "1984," Cory Doctorow's "Little Brother" is lively, precocious, and most importantly, a little scary." --Brian K. Vaughan, author of the graphic novel "Y: The Last Man." Young adult.
From the Publisher
Marcus, aka "w1n5t0n," 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
that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one
option: to take down the DHS himself.
Can one teenage hacker ﬁght back against a government
out of control? Maybe, but only if he's really careful . . . and
very, very smart.
