What happens when a teenager takes a step back and really looks at his and his friends’ screen-obsessed lives? And what does he think of all the adults who make this possible? And will his rebellion make a difference? Will anyone listen?
Fifteen-year-old Charles Ingram is on the run from the FBI. Traveling from New York State to Boston and then on to Vermont, Charles is determined to hide out as long as possible in a lakeside cabin, a pricey vacation getaway owned and neglected by his equally workaholic parents’ friends. Aware that he will be captured, he decides to write his story and explain why he and his gang committed their crimes. No longer a gamer, bully, or highly medicated and spoiled teen, he’s convinced the “System” has brainwashed people and turned them into digital pawns.
Fast-paced and thrilling, Third Brick from the Right is a profound and hilarious send-up of life in the digital age.
