Wdebo's Review: Just to set the record straight, I am totally computer illiterate. So, when I picked up this book I thought I wouldn't like it at all. To make a long story short, I was wrong. It was so amazing and fast paced, I just found Marcus so amazing that he was able to sum up all his courage to fight against what he thought was wrong. I learned so much from this book, it was packed with a bazillion bundles of info for the reader to learn, so it was like fun learning. It was written so well, I felt like I was part of the group and fighting along with them. I wish everyone could read this book! 9.8/10!
