Alternate Reality, Actual Reality?

jennifer government

Jennifer Government is a dystopian novel set in an alternate reality where most nations are controlled by for-profit corporate entities and there is limited government political power.

I read this when I was about 14 or 15 — it was on sale at Walden’s in the mall. The book wasn’t exactly groundbreaking or of “that high of quality.” And I don’t remember ever detail of the story, except this concept where schools and students were sponsored by different companies; like the McDonald’s School where students wore uniforms in the colors of the company.

So, I am deeply fascinated when I see articles like these:

How Target is infiltrating public schools to build customers for life

Google wants to save our schools — and hooks a new generation of users

How McDonald’s and corporate america are bringing internet access to rural america

Page by Paige

Page by Paige

Laura Lee Gulledge came up on my radar because of her recent release of the Will & Whit. My enjoyment of that graphic novel compelled me to go back read her first work.

Semi-autobiographical, Page by Paige follows Paige Turner on her family’s move to living in the big city beyond her hometown. Paige makes sense of her vibrant new surrounds through her own sketchbook. The feelings are honest and Gulledge’s storytelling is hopeful as Paige interacts with her peers and parents.

Unfortunately I did not enjoy her earlier work as much as her most recent. I can see from reading Page by Paige though how her storytelling and artistic style has matured and polished. This is a great read for younger young adult as life is constantly changing in the biggest or smallest of ways.
