Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is our December Book Club Book.  Have you ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time?  That is exactly what happens to Marcus Yallow and his pals when they skip school and using clues they found online, play some Harajuku Fun Madness.  When the San Francisco Bay Bridge gets bombed by terrorists Marcus and his friends get rounded up by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  They are imprisoned for days, questioned, threatened and mistreated before being released.   As the DHS imposes more and more regulations in the name of security and safety, Marcus decides to fight back against the government.  Hacking!!!  With the help of other kids he figures out a way to fight back and try to defend the Bill of Rights.  This was a great read which made me think about how much freedom we give up in the name of safety and security.
