Book Rave Contender 2012 – Americapedia: Taking the ‘Dumb’ Out of Freedom

Teens may not always be known for their civic engagement, but here’s a book that aims to right that! Is it a worthy and funny primer on American government that will spur further interest among teens?

The Blurb:

Aimed at teens who want to know more about the day-to-day workings of the U.S. government, this unique blend of humor and information is a cross between a textbook and a satire. A crash course for understanding critical events in America and the world, it touches upon a variety of topics-historical and current-and explains how they unfolded and why they are important in the political and governmental arenas.
