A dystopian novel written 16 years ago, in which some of the situations hit close to home today! A fun one to listen to because the main characters are bombarded by obnoxious targeted ads, which you hear and experience in the audio version.

This presents an alarming, and intriguing view of the future America. In it, people drive flying cars, they vacation on the moon, public schools are run by corporations (School, Inc.), and most have a "feed" installed in their brains from a very early age.
The Feed broadcast your favorite shows and music, allows you to "chat" others without actually speaking, and share your memories like slide shows. Most importantly, the Feed provides the nearly constant opportunity to purchase anything and everything based on your individual sensory and emotional experience. Product images are relayed immediately to your head by a remote feed provider.
Titus and Violet are two very different teenagers who meet on the moon. Their love affair is jeopardized by their varying levels of acceptance of the feed. When Violet's feed is damaged, her life becomes threatened. Titus has to face the truth of the value in living life as fed to him by someone or something else.
