Reviews

Gr 7-10-When he was a baby, Jaiden Beale's parents died in an explosion caused by faulty equipment, and as a result of a wrongful-death suit, he is being raised by the corporation responsible for the accident. The corporate world's answer to child rearing makes for some hilarious antics. The classic scene is the PowerPoint presentation addressing the now-14-year-old's social development and presenting the dossiers of several young women from school with whom he should consider "interfacing." To add to the drama, it is revealed that the company is knowingly contaminating the local water supply with mercury, and the father of the girl he likes is leading the protest against it. After coming into contact with the contaminated water and becoming infected, Jaiden and his two friends are determined to expose NECorp, which almost costs them their lives. Teen, Inc. has a dynamic main character with an authentic voice. It's a page-turning adventure that sheds light on ethical dilemmas and matters of character and trust. This fresh take is to the corporate world what Gordon Korman's Son of the Mob (Hyperion, 2002) is to organized crime: humorous and poignant, drawing in readers, reluctant or otherwise.-Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

'The story is funny and exciting and teenagers will enjoy the gripping conclusion' The School Librarian
