Marcus Yallow is no longer a student. California's economy has collapsed, taking his parents' jobs and his university tuition with it. Thanks to his activist past, Marcus lands a job as webmaster for a muckraking politician who promises reform. Things are never simple, though: soon Marcus finds himself embroiled in lethal political intrigue and the sharp end of class warfare, American style.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - nosborm - LibraryThing

Finished this a while ago. Pretty good. Not as good as the first one but worth the read. I'm excited to see if there will be more. Mad props to Cory Doctrow for releasing for free (I bought a copy to support him). Makes me want to go to Burning Man. Read full review

User Review  - cindywho - LibraryThing

Marcus' paranoid tale in a slightly more dystopian reality is bracketed by Burning Man and full of protests and info-dumps. He's a smart ass kid which is annoying and endearing at the same time. It was a good follow-up to Little Brother. Read full review
