|Children's Crusade: Memoirs Of A Teenage Radical||20110218|
by Philip de Gouveia
Evie, a phenomenally bright but socially marginalised fifteen year-old, has had it with Western Civilization.
Self-educated in the ideas of the Luddites, Mao and T.E.
Lawrence, she wants to launch a mission against technology and the damage she believes it has wrought on the human race.
She's taken a look at human history and decided it's time things changed.
But can she get her mobile-addicted classmates to join with her?
