Wow. That one sort of shook me up. I think I was able to relate to this one more than others might, as it took place in SF, citing many places I am very familiar with - and also because there is a lot of technobabble in there that I am able to understand. This is a book I wish every 15 year old in the country got a chance to read. It talks about a near future terrorist attack on San Francisco, and the government clamping down on the citizens. It basically takes a lot of the things we are starting to see in regards to loosing privacy for the sake of security, and amps them up just a bit more to show how shocking our world can become (or has already become) if we let it.
