Winner of the National Book Award, Pete Hautman pens a futuristic satire brimming with wry humor and honored by a Booklist starred review. Welcome to the United Safer States of America in 2076! Here, prisoners perform all manual labor. And the country is finally safe. Sixteen-year-old Bo ignores governmental protective devices capturing every action and word. He endures the avalanche of safety regulations. But when he's accused of spreading a rash at school, anger and jealousy threaten to override his daily dose of calming Levulor and earn him a job in the Canadian tundra.

    " Great book for middle schoolers... just watch out for the abundance of cuss words! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/28/2014

    " My teen male students will like certain aspects of this book. It started out better than it ended though. Just needed a little more punch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chealsy | 1/25/2014

    " IT is very good book:) intense with a few swear words that could not be there. but otherwise its mind bending and awesome! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra | 1/21/2014

    " A fun, fast-paced novel that is also a quite thoughtful parody as it explores the repurcussions of over-protecting our society. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 1/20/2014

    " While I didn't think this was the greatest book when I read it a few years ago, I continue to find myself reflecting on it. The way we are teaching our kids that the world is a dangerous place and to be very careful primarily, but also the McDonaldization of the world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/10/2014

    " The was a very original book. Bo is an interesting main character, and the world is definitely interesting, but the plotline seemed a little... distracted. First the focus seems the rash, then football, then escape... A good read, but inconlusive. "

    " Young-adult future dystopia tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laela | 12/24/2013

    " I wanted this to be more of a coming of age story then it is. The premiss is clever and it's a good read, but it's not all that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabe S | 12/22/2013

    " This is a very good book. I can relate to it because I remember the first time I was trying to play football. This book is also very funny and awesome. It's probably the best book I've ever read. The reason why it wasn't 4 stars was because I did not like the ending at all. "

    " It's like if Kurt Vonnegut wrote The Giver.(But the football parts are boring if you're not into football.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josiah Framo | 6/4/2013

    " This book has a lot of action in it. Football and over the counter drugs are illegal in the year of 2020. The kid breaks all the rules and tries to fight back. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marlene Garcia | 5/21/2013

    " This was an o.k. book. It wasn't my favorite. It's about this kid named Bo. It takes place in 2075'ish. Yeah, its way in the future. He has a father who "

    " i thought that this book was really amazingly written because the characters had to deal with times where there was no turning back or their back to a wall. "
