The Atlantic's book club, 1book140, is asking for votes on its book for February. I'm surprised and delighted to see my novel Little Brother on that list, and the timing couldn't be better, what with the sequel, Homeland, coming out on Feb 5.
It's also in great company: "Wonderstruck" by Brian Selznick; "Are You There God, It's Me Margaret" and "Just As Long as We're Together" by Judy Blume; "The Chocolate War" by Robert Cormier; and "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green.

Cory Doctorow is a fast and furious storyteller who gets all the details of alternate reality gaming right, while offering a startling, new vision of how these games might play out in the high-stakes context of a terrorist attack. Little Brother is a brilliant novel with a bold argument: hackers and gamers might just be our country’s best hope for the future.
