A futuristic, apocolyptic young adult novel that you will want to sink you teeth into! Social Punk is generous with the world-building, which most first installments of a series do. Within this novel, the setting is Chicago, but in the future. Chicago is in a Dome because the rest of the world is Scorched. All humans have computer chips in their brains. So there is not alot of need for socializing because everytime your brain has a question, it immediately retrieves the answer. Also, everyone sees the world as a blank canvas. They perceive their world as they see it, and it is. Very cool.
So when a group of hooded figures enter the Dome, intent on destroying it, Ima needs to decide if she wants to stay or flee. She's always wanted to know what is outside the Dome, she knows no other life. But at what cost?
Social Punk is riveting and bursting with world-building details that will keep you glued to the pages. The characters are likable but I can't wait to really get to know them better, hopefully in the next installment, Social Mob (July, 2012). Definitely pick this one up! I really enjoyed it!!
