Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow (Tor Teen, 2010)

After a terrorist attack prompts a government clampdown, a tech-savvy San Francisco teen finds himself an unlikely warrior against a nascent totalitarian state. Pacy, confident spin on Nineteen Eighty-Four with bags of convincing detail and some insight into adolescent insecurities for good measure. Lots to relish, and a few useful pointers for living in/resisting the Information Age into the bargain. Two further books (Homeland and Attack Surface) follow.
