|Plot Summary of Feed|
Titus is an average teenager in America's future: He spends his days e-chatting with friends, buying the coolest new clothes and catching the hottest parties, on or off-planet. And like everyone else he knows, Titus is forever hard-wired into the constant advertisement-information barrage known as The Feed.
During a Spring Break party on the Moon, Titus meets up with a girl named Violet. She seems a little out of sorts: She likes to actually speak with her mouth, rather than just e-chat through the feed, for starters, and she has serious reservations about the forced consumerism that has packaged every person into a neat demographic cube. When a hacker's attack temporarily disables the feeds hooked into Titus, his friends and Violet, Titus and Violet spend their recovery time together, and he starts to learn more about this strange girl and the odd past which sets her apart from the vast majority of society. But it soon becomes apparent that something is wrong with Violet's feed, and Titus must reconcile the only life he knows with Violet's terrible, eye-opening vision of the truth.
