Titus' ability to read, write and even think for himself has been almost completely obliterated by his "feed", a transmitter implanted directly into his brain. Feeds are a crucial part of life for Titus and his friends. After all, how else would they know where to party on the moon, how to get bargains at Weatherbee & Crotch or how to accessorize the mysterious lesions everyone's been getting? But then Titus meets Violet, a girl who cares about what's happening to the world and challenges everything Titus and his friends hold dear. A girl who decides to fight the feed.
Following in the footsteps of Aldous Huxley, George Orwell and Kurt Vonnegut, M.T. Anderson has created a not-so-brave new world, and a smart, savage satire about the nature of consumerism and what it means to be a teenager in America.
"Anderson deftly combines elements of today's teen scene...with imaginative and disturbing fantasy twists...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." (
"A gripping, intriguing and unique cautionary novel." ( School Library Journal)
"This brilliant production for older teen listeners enhances Anderson's portrait of a world gone sour, in which even the adults have forgotten how to use language, and everything is dying, including the kids." ( AudioFile)
