Feed by M.T. Anderson

This book is a compelling read about a future world where people have a feed (computer chip) planted in their head. It is somewhat like having a computer connected to the internet. The feed tells you about news, items you can buy, latest trends and places to go. The story starts out with Titus and his friends going to the moon for spring break. Titus meets Violet there and a friendship begins. Violet cares about what is happening in the world and challenges everything Titus and his friends know and believe about the feed.

This book reminds me of 1984 and is somewhat scary, because I think it is actually possible we could end up in a world like the one described.

Highly recommended.
