From the bestselling novel by Cory Doctorow!

In “Little Brother” 17-year-old hacker Marcus plays electronic cat and mouse games while skipping school in San Francisco. When the city is the victim of a terrorist attack, he finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and is suddenly apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security for days of merciless interrogation on Treasure Island. When no one besides his friends believes his story, Marcus is left with only one option: take down the system himself.

“Little Brother” is a near-future thriller, a teenage romance, and a frightening predictor of things to come.

“Little Brother” is supported by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the Custom Made family of donors.
