Review

Rating: 6

In a future where education has become privatized and malls are converted to schools, this novel explores how marketing becomes increasingly pervasive in our life. The protagonist, Kid, would rather make music and her refusal to become fully engaged in “The Game” leads her to challenge the system and possibly to change it. In some ways, this novel reminds me of John Shirley’s A Song Called Youth trilogy by way of DJ culture (rather than Shirley’s rock and roll aesthetic).
