Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow
This is a good book about a boy struggling to beat his government. Marcus is just one of many boys in San Francisco, no one special. When the Bay Bridge is bombed by terrorists that all changes. Marcus becomes M1k3y(Mikey) a idolized leader of a rebellion against the government over the x-net. He is suddenly looked up to by thousands of people on the x-net. They all are against one cause; the Department of Homeland Security. As these thousands of kids come together to battle the D.H.S. over the internet Marcus realizes what he has created and knows he will eventually get caught. Marcus doesn't want to be put in a jail cell by the D.H.S. but knows if he doesn't continue his rebellion San Francisco might never be the same again.
