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.
