Read in June, 2007

Of the six books for Harry Turtledove's Crosstime series for teenagers, Disunited States is the strongest, and one I'd consider actually teaching in my high school U.S. History class. The major conceit in this novel is the idea that the Articles of Confederation were left to stand and the states became their own feuding republics, a la Latin America. It's a strong and engaging stand-alone novel, although the grandmother in the book gets mighty irritating by page four.
