The Silenced by James DeVita

In this futuristc dystopian novel, it is after the Millenium War and the Zero Tolerance government is cracking down on young people, encouraging a completely homogenous society. Marina and her two friends begin a grafitti campaign encouraging resistance as the government and school crack down even further.
There's lots of suspense and twists and turns, but the characters are pretty predictable. The most interesting part of the book is the afterword, in which the author talks about the White Rose, the resistance group that stood up to the Nazis upon which the book is based. MAYBE for now; I'd like to hear what others think.
