Identity crises, consumerism, and star-crossed teenage love in a futuristic society where people connect to the Internet via feeds implanted in their brains.

For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon—a chance to party during spring break and play with some stupid low-grav at the Ricochet Lounge. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy teenage girl who has decided to fight the feed and its omnipresent ability to categorize human thoughts and desires. Following in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., M. T. Anderson has created a not-so-brave new world—and a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Anderson’s book is written to be read aloud. Titus’s stream of words and the rhythm of the ‘teenspeak’ are read to perfection by actor David Baker. The intermittent feed commercials give listeners a taste of this society and help them understand the media attack the teens here are forced to endure. Baker's presentation will make this satiric cautionary tale very real for listeners.”

    School Library Journal

  • “What really puts the teeth in the bite…is Anderson’s brilliant satiric vision in the seamless creation of this imagined but believable world. The writing is relentlessly funny, clever in its observations and characters.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

  • “This satire offers a thought-provoking and scathing indictment that may prod readers to examine the more sinister possibilities of corporate-and media-dominated culture.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “M. T. Anderson has created the perfect device for an ingenious satire of corporate America and our present-day value system…Like those in a funhouse mirror, the reflections the novel shows us may be ugly and distorted, but they are undeniably ourselves.”

    Horn Book (starred review)

  • “The crystalline realization of this wildly dystopic future carries in it obvious and enormous implications for today’s readers—satire at its finest.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Taylor Bovarnick | 2/18/2014

    " I really liked how this book was set in the future and all of the technology was different. I think that because the story is taking place in the future I was intrigued more by the content and the actual plot within it. I liked Violet and Titus's connection because it was different than other teenage connections shown in many books. This book was not simply a love story, it had more to it that added depth. I finished it in one day, which shows that it was a good read. "

    " The audio version of this book was very well done! I was surprised to find out after I "read" the book that it was printed in '04 (or something like that.) It was so scary on where the future seems to be headed. For me, this was a very unique premise. I really didn't like the main character, Titus (not sure we are supposed to), but I was so curious/worried about Violet that not finishing the book wasn't an option for me. "
