Review

Praise for "Truancy "and "Truancy Origins"

Both nominated for YA Galley Teen Top Ten

"This astounding and action-packed novel by a fifteen-year-old New York City student is sure to appeal to adolescents everywhere....It's sure to be a big hit, just the kind of subversive tale YA's recommend to each other." "--KLIATT," starred review on "Truancy"

"A big, raw, sprawling action film of a book, combining martial arts, street fighting, midnight raids, rooftop flights, and a high body count.... Action rules, and teen boys will swallow this book at a gulp, demanding more." "--VOYA "on "Truancy"

"The premise of teens combating an oppressive education system will entice readers."
"--Booklist "on "Truancy"

"Fukui, who is a teen himself, focuses primarily on deftly depicted violence and explosive action sequences that will resonate most with reluctant male readers." "--Booklist "on "Truancy Origins"

"To anyone who suffered the angst of middle and high school and resented the demands of teachers and other adults, this story will strike a deep chord. Fukui's tale embodies the teenage fantasy of finally gaining freedom of choice, taking control for those in authority. Fast-paced action, gritty street fights, and satisfying vengeance will definitely carry high appeal for its audience."
"--RT Book Reviews "on "Truancy Origins"

"Action-packed from beginning to end, the Truancy series could potentially be to teenage boys what Twilight is to teenage girls--an excellent trilogy to be shared with friends. There are enough twists and turns, blood and scheming to keep any teen glued to the couch and reading through the night. "Truancy Origins "is actually a prequel to Fukui's "Truancy," written when he was only fifteen years old."

I enjoyed the action and the main themes of the book, and Fukui's writing style keeps me interested all the way to the last page. I give it a five because the Truancy books are the best books I have ever read. I recommend these books to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars thought provoking exciting thriller 6 Dec. 2012
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The City continues to be divided between the tyrannical Educators and the rebellious Truants. Neither side is prepared to end the conflict as Educators backed by their deadly Enforcers refuse to give up the power of centrally controlling what is learned; while many of the Truants believe the only way to obtain the freedom to think is to overthrow the ruling oligopoly through bloodshed. Thus the Educators and the Truants share in common a dogma that they are totally right and their enemy totally wrong.

While in-fighting continues unabated with the adversaries entrenched, a third party sees an opportunity to take over the City. Unless the Educators and the Truants can unite against a common foe, both will be eliminated.

The third Truancy thriller (see Truancy and Truancy Origins) is an exciting climax that takes an external spin to Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall." Extremists on both sides reject compromise even with a new threat that endangers both groups. Character driven by reflective rotating leads among the ensemble cast, fans will appreciate this thought provoking tale wondering what will happen to the City.
