Sixteen-year-old Callie Baxter refuses to just sit tight and accept the invaders who have occupied her city. Underneath the new Government’s façade of order and fairness lies the ugly reason for its being here, and it’s up to Callie’s group of underground rebels to expose its brutal objective. She’s worked hard to keep her fledgling group of passionate rebels alive, but as the Government’s hit squads narrow in on them, she realises she has only just begun to understand the pain of loss, and the true cost of growing up. Idea War: Volume 1 is the first installment in a thrilling new urban series which outlines the story behind the fight for the soul of a future Johannesburg. The city represents a shining example of recovery to the outside world, but can a small group of determined teenagers overcome the decay that has taken root at its core?(less)

I can't wait to read the next one! This short, but powerful book leaves you with more questions than answers, sure, but I couldn't put it down. It is action-packed and fun and yet it touches on some real and serious issues. I love that is is set in Joburg - a city that is already complex and in this dystopian future just gets more so. I also love the short story style. I think this will develop well as the series progresses. Each chapter is like a story on its own.
