it was amazing
bookshelves: reviewed, galleys

The short, I'll-really-try-not-to-gush version:
Cory Doctorow writes educational YA. No, come back! Stop running! I'm serious- and it's not a bad thing!
Argh. I lost another one.
Anyhow. Basically, FTW explains the economics and mechanics of labor unions in the framework of MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games). It's cool, it's- as I said, and I know it's the word of death- educational, and it's fun. Oh, and here's another adjective: intense. Doctorow doesn't pull punches; Little Brother showed us that.
As far as I'm concerned, he's writing the most relevant young adult fiction around, and he's making it fun to read. As long as he keeps publishing, I'll keep reading his books, and I don't care if I'm sixteen or fifty six.
FTW isn't out yet, so I reccomend you go get Little Brother while you wait.

Read as a YA Galley book and nominated for the Teens' Top Ten.
