The Unidentified by Rae Mariz
Released Date: October 5 , 2010
Kid knows her school’s corporate sponsors not-so-secretly monitor her friendships and activities for market research. It’s all a part of the Game; the alternative education system designed to use the addictive kick from video games to encourage academic learning. Everyday, a captive audience of students ages 13-17 enter the nationwide chain store-like Game locations to play.
When a group calling themselves The Unidentified simulates a suicide to protest the power structure of their school, Kid’s investigation into their pranks attracts unwanted attention from the sponsors. As Kid finds out she doesn't have rights to her ideas, her privacy, or identity, she and her friends look for a way to revolt in a place where all acts of rebellion are just spun into the next new ad campaign.
First Thoughts: It sounded very interesting when I looked at it in the library so I checked it out.
Cover: The cover is okay, not the best. I like the other cover more a bit :D
Setting: The setting is the Mall turned into a school. Pretty cool and everything is like in the future, but in the past tense.
Characters: All I can say about the characters that they are solid and original. I really the love Kid's voice.
Plot: The plot is simply awesome, using the sweet language of the future with the
gadgets and the internet.
