Prescribed Text for HSC 2019-2023 – Standard Module B: Close Study of Literature

The tour de force that set the gold standard for dystopian YA fiction — in a compelling paperback edition.

For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon — a chance to party during spring break. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their .heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy girl who has decided to fight the feed and its ever-present ability to categorize human thoughts and desires. M. T. Anderson’s not-so-brave new world is a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now

In paperback with an appealing new cover, in conjunction with reissues of Thirsty and Burger Wuss and with the publication of Landscape With Invisible Hand
Winner of the L.A. Times Book Award and a National Book Award Finalist
A classic of YA dystopian literature, still relevant after 15 years.
