This has been so popular at my school that both copies were out most of the year. I'm adding the audio to my library collection for an additional option. ( )

I seldom comment, but this book frustrated me. While it highlights timely topics in state/federal issues, so many things here were not plausible. People who want to avoid capture don't live at home, play in scheduled games, keep work and school schedules, or stay connected with cell phones. An oath made to the national guard isn't secondary to the one made to the US govt and people. And self preservation is NOT the same as self defense!

While the actions of the characters in the story may have legitimacy in the minds of a few (especially those who wave Confederate flags or who squat on federal lands in NV or OR), the "plausibility" of this leading to an armed conflict with an entire, landlocked, rogue state implies that there is still a Constitutional debate here. The South lost that argument more than once. And, yes, Governor Montaigne, the SCOTUS does get to decide whether or not federal laws are Constitutional! That's what they do!

Also, so many stereotypes, flat characters and platitudes! Where is the line between civil disobedience and domestic terrorism? This main character thinks of no one but himself, so who is he actually serving? He didn't even fully understand the issue he was fighting for. Yuck!

But hot girlfriend, football, bull riding, beer, weapons, media-bashing, and car chases, though! ( )

Danny Wright never thought he'd be the man to bring down the United States of America. In fact, he enlisted in the Idaho National Guard because he wanted to serve his country the way his father did. When the Guard is called up on the governor's orders to police a protest in Boise, it seems like a routine crowd-control mission ... but then Danny's gun misfires, spooking the other soldiers and the already fractious crowd, and by the time the smoke clears, twelve people are dead.

The president wants the soldiers arrested. The governor swears to protect them. And as tensions build on both sides, the conflict slowly escalates toward the unthinkable: a second American civil war.

Danny Wright took an oath to protect the US and his home state of Idaho when he enlisted in the national guard. When he finds himself torn between loyalty to the two, he has to make some hard choices about where he'll place his loyalty. He is part of the battle of Boise when civilians were shot and the guard was blamed. Lots of action and questions about how fragile the organization of the United States may be. ( )

Definitely a book that will appeal to YA boys- the story of Danny Wright, senior from Freedom Lake High in small town Idaho, valuable wide receiver on his school's football team, long time boyfriend of cheerleader Jo Bell, & supported by fellow football buddies Cal Riccon & Eric Sweeney. Becca Wells is another lifelong friend & expert horsewoman; both she & Danny participate in the amatuer rodeos in the area, & Danny rides the bulls. He even has a vehicle nicknamed the "Beast", a cherry red '91 Chevy Blazer. What more could a 17 yr old teen boy desire?
As the story opens, Danny's finishing a grueling football practice, looking forward to a "last of the summer" party at the nearby lake, contemplating asking Jo Bell to marry him, & stopping in at his dad & partner's car repair shop where he now works, & has become part owner. As his mother arrives home from work with the start of a panic attack - ones she's suffered from ever since Danny's dad died serving in US military in Afghanistan-Danny gets a phone call from his Idaho National Guard Sergeant Myers, mobilizing his unit to go to Boise & help control the growing chaos of a protest around the state capital. The crowds become violent, the Guards throw tear gas, & suddenly - Danny knows his M4 rifle accidently discharged when a rock from a protestor startled him-more chaos & shots ring out. As the protestors scatter in panic, the Guard units regroup & Danny's unit faces the stern questioning of the state's National Guard General, & Idaho Gov. Montaine. While the Guard investigates whose weapons were discharged, the governor decides he will take responsibility for the disaster & the young men are sent home. With dead protestors & some injured Guardsmen, the media have a free for all, & suddenly the incident becomes "the Battle of Boise." Within a few chapters the political tension between the governor of Idaho (who like other Idahoans sees the federal passage of a bill insituting national id cards for every US citizen as unconstitutional) & the U.S. President quickly grows into a political insurrection. (While it may seem a bit fantastical, in light of the last couple years of the U.S. political landscape, including the stalwart conservatism of Idaho, the fictional premise could be from the headlines of today.) Fast moving plot which is interspersed with tweets/text messages & partial scripts of media announcements - student readers may find their inclusion a nuisance but certainly reflects the public's viewpoints. As the "protest gone wrong" & the Governor's defiance of the US "feds" continues, one of his unit's lieutenants commits suicide, & when Danny's identified as one of the Guardsman responsible for the shooting, FBI agents arrive at his high school to take him in. His friends agree to help him escape & a wild car chase later, Danny is saved from arrest by Sheriff Crow & his police officers, who by order of the governor, have insisted the "feds" do not have the jurisdiction.
Again - what teen boy would not love this storyline??: racing through town at 150 mph & after getting stopped, has the sheriff rescue him from the FBI custody, & then merely shake his hand, tell him he was a friend of his dad's, & admire his high speed finesse " 'I've never seen moves like yours, 'cept in the movies... ' " (154).
Some plot developments strain the bounds of reality but the action never stops, the teenage drinking is glamourized, there's many, many involved descriptions of army & personal weapons, & the heartbreaking climax trying to retrieve his mom from Washington state with Danny, as usual, accompanied by his "posse" of good friends, all propel readers toward the last page ...and the next installment, with Idaho poised to go to war with the United States. At 373 pages, a very involved first book in a trilogy. ( )
