Author: Kristen Landon
Rating: * (1 star out of 3 possible, "C")
Recommended with Reservations
Audience: Middle School
This first novel by Kristen Landon begins with a somewhat choppy plot sequence and some choppy, colloquial dialogue. But the author has created a believable near-future America where debt, senseless consumerism and an over-reaching central government combine to create provocative philosophical and ethical questions for characters and readers.
