In a dystopian near-future of the American Surveillance State, we
follow the story of Marcus, who only a couple of years before, was
caught in a scandal of torture, unlawful imprisonment, and government
secrets. He finds himself once more in the center of a conspiracy
centered around the friends he keeps and the secrets he has access to.
Homeland is a somewhat sequel to Little Brother, Cory's first book in
the series that centers around privacy, civil liberties, and
technology. I recommend this book to any young adult or parent who
wants his child to be aware of the world in which he is being brought
up in. It's cliché to say that this book and books like it are
important, but hey it's important. The modern answer to 1984, by an
author that makes his characters easy to identify with and the reading
fun, fast, and freeing!
