LITTLE BROTHER by Cory Doctorow (Book #4)

I just realized when I was planning this 4th book that I haven't read any of these "boys for boys about boys" books except for the first one that I mentioned...Lockdown....I do own all of them though but just haven't gotten around to reading them yet. Hmmm....think I better make it a goal to get on it so I can get reviews up since I am blogging about the whole lack of reviews on these types of books.

(from Goodreads)

Marcus, a.k.a “w1n5t0n,” is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works–and how to work the system. Smart, fast, and wise to the ways of the networked world, he has no trouble outwitting his high school’s intrusive but clumsy surveillance systems.
But his whole world changes when he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they’re mercilessly interrogated for days.
When the DHS finally releases them, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself.
