This is another ebook from the Tor.com promotion.
The Disunited States of America is an alternative history book which takes place in late 21st century where the articles of confederation fell apart and no US constitution was agreed. So the states stayed independent.
It is a book targeted to teens and adolescents, which in itself I didn’t find to be a problem. However, as a result of that, the author avoids any cursing by the characters. Even that I was okay with, except that the author actually mentions in the text that a character said something unmentionable. After a couple of such mentions, it just annoyed me.
