this book was great. it touched on the importance of freedoms, the fun world of technology we live in, the power of protest, the injustice of government and the simple truth that: 'Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that when any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundations on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.' that is from the book and the declaration of independence. convinced it is educational? Marcus, Angie, and all the" Xneters" in the book are all strong characters. Of course, as certain parties point out, it touches on underage drinking, drugs, teen sex, hacking, and crime. but it doesn't say "do all this stuff", it is simply a minor part in the book and readers will have already heard about those things from their parents(hopefully). this does not mean it is alright for all young children, but okay for some.
