"Filled with sharp dialogue...this work makes its admittedly didactic point within a tautly crafted fictional framework."
"Terrifying glimpse of the future--or the present."
"Marcus is a wonderfully developed character: hyperaware of his surroundings, trying to redress past wrongs, and rebelling against authority."
"The encroachment on individual rights by national security is a primary theme of George Orwell's 1984, and, as his title suggests, Doctorow pays homage to that classic with an impassioned, polemical consideration of the War on Terror that dovetails with themes of teenage angst, rebellion, and paranoia."
From the Publisher
Annotation Extensively praised by the famed Neil Gaiman and Scott Westerfeld, LITTLE BROTHER follows 17-year-old Marcus as he uses his geek savvy to organize a youth revolt against a Department of Homeland Security gone absolutely mad after a terrorist attack in San Francisco. After a particularly brutal interrogation and the disappearance of his best friend, Marcus is determined to oust the DHS from his city with internet sabotage, an underground teen army, and sheer moxie. Channeling George Orwell's BIG BROTHER, Doctorow has created an intense, thrilling political journey that will provide thought-provoking fodder for even the most apolitical young adult reader. A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2008 and a New York Times Notable Children's Book of 2008.
