Chasing Freedom by Marina Fontaine

My review today is the futuristic thriller, Chasing Freedom. I haven't read any of Marina's work before but I really liked this one. This book is well written and could very easily happen if the Socialist running for office win this election. The story starts in the year 2040 and follows a group of teens through the next eighteen years. Although I really liked the book, it was in some ways very disturbing because of what is going on in our world today.

These teens; Julie, a girl with every advantage money could buy but a heart for the freedom that was lost, Randy, a computer geek that wants to win Julie and is willing to anything she wants of him, Joseph, who recently lost his sister because of the system, Daniel, a young artist who finds trouble anyway he turns, and Chris a young orphan that will do anything to protect his little sister, lead a rebellion to take back the basic freedom they have lost.

These teens manage to turn the world upside down with their technology. The government does everything in it's power to destroy these kids and the rebellion they lead. As I said before parts are disturbing when we see people that aren't allowed the freedoms that our men and women of the military fought so hard to give us the rights we now enjoy.
