This dystopian YA novel packs more punch than many others in the sub-genre because it tackles a contemporary issue, the assualt on our public school system, and openly asks the reader to get engaged and fight back for our schools. As evocative as it is timely, this novel will stick with young readers and move the not-so-young as well.
