The ultimate tale of teen rebellion - one seventeen-year-old against the surveillance state. Big Brother is watching you. Who's watching back?
Marcus is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works - and how to work the system. 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 they are released, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state, where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself.
