I read Homeland (Little Brother, #2) by Cory Doctorow on

Review

It’s YA fiction in the ‘kid hacker’ genre. Since this is one of my few adventures into YA novels, I can’t judge it with good relative accuracy, but it does fall into many tropes - tortured revolutionary political boy with female love interest and SF setting. The plot has few major hooks. But all-in-all, it’s a nice read and, even if it laboriously explains every tech concept, it does so accurately and has a tasteful selection of references.
