School Library Journal
Gr 6-8 Successful series create fans with a varied cast of characters, a tangle of unresolved plot lines, and nonstop action, none of which are in evidence in this second book in this series. Eighteen months after a successful military coup, the U. S. (now the ''United Secure States of America'') is drifting without much difficulty toward a restrictive society, complete with censorship, ''disappearances,'' and a sinister youth organization (the Young Patriots League). The trivial plotsomething about recruiting gang members into the YPL by offering them hot new motorcycles that have a dangerous design flawadvances at a leisurely pace, while teen-age Eddie and his friends, none of whom exhibit much strength or intelligence, look on with increasing anxiety. The villains behind it all are never identified and never appear. Several times people hint at some form of resistance, but Eddie is left on the outside, and so are readers.
