Description

Winner of the National Book Award, Pete Hautman pens a futuristic satire brimming with wry humor and honored by a Booklist starred review. Welcome to the United Safer States of America in 2076! Here, prisoners perform all manual labor. And the country is finally safe. Sixteen-year-old Bo ignores governmental protective devices capturing every action and word. He endures the avalanche of safety regulations. But when he's accused of spreading a rash at school, anger and jealousy threaten to override his daily dose of calming Levulor and earn him a "job" in the Canadian tundra.

Professional reviews

"Providing as many voices as there are characters, Andy Paris's skilled narration effortlessly leads the listener through this dystopic science fiction story. In 2076 in the United Safer States of America, having a temper is a serious problem. Bo Marsden is sentenced to three years in a prison work camp for having one fight too many. From the fights on the high school grounds to the illegal football games on the frozen tundra at the work camp, listeners will be glued to their seats to learn the next turn of events. All the while, Paris's smooth, vivid style keeps pace with the fast-paced action and dramatic story line. K.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
