High schooler, techno-head Marcus and his band of ARG friends ditch school to follow clues in their new Harajuku Fun Madness game, when the San Francisco ground rocks as the Bay Bridge is bombed by terrorists. In trying to escape the now dangerous subway system, friend Daryl is stabbed. As Marcus, Julu and Van try to hail official looking vehicles to help they are arrested for their suspicious behavior. After a humiliating interrogation that lasts days, Marcus is released. His experience with Homeland Security’s “Severe Haircut Woman” Marcus faces fighting the injustice without friends who are too frightened, and with fractured support from his parents. With clever technical skills, a new posse and a new girl friend he spares with the HS giant for human rights in the military occupied San Francisco.

This techno-suspense is a 2011 Evergreen Award nominee
