Tween Book Group Reads Little Brother for December 14th


Tween Book Group Reads "Little Brother" for December 14, 2017
Page Turners, our book group for tweens in grades 6-8, is reading Little Brother by Cory Doctorow for their get-together on Thursday, December 14th from 2:05-3:15PM in room 10 of the Litchfield Middle School. Page Turners begins with an after school snack, followed by a discussion of the book, and a short activity.

Copies of the book are available in the upper-level Teen area and the lower-level Young Readers’ Room.

About the Book
Marcus, a.k.a "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.
