>I’m really loving Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother (Tor), which Jonathan Hunt is reviewing for the July Horn Book. It’s rare–always has been–to find YA realistic fiction that engages the political dimension, especially one so enthusiastic about disturbing the status quo. And it does so contagiously–I totally want to go out and hack something now.
And now, I can! Doctorow has compiled some how-to’s for such plot points from his book as encrypting Gmail, starting a flash mob, blocking an RFID chip, and getting over a barbed-wire fence. Also included: “What to do when the police stop you.”
