The RFID Truancy Solution by Sharon Perkins
Fictional short about Kelli, a precocious teenager who rebels against wearing her school’s mandated student-tracking Radio Frequency ID badge. She believes the RFID badges are part of a nefarious government plot, but no one will listen.
As an added bonus, I've included another short story I've written about a girl whose friend manages to get her elected president through a "Facebook Campaign."
This review will be a bit shorter than my usual reviews because the story was so short. At first I agreed with Kelly, the main character, about the RFID, because I thought the story was going to turn into a dystopian/science fiction. However after finishing the story I disagree with Kelly. Even though the story was short, it left a lasting impression on me. The ending creeped me out. The story teaches that technology is a good and bad thing. It can save lives but it can also ruin them. The book also teaches never to meet strangers from the internet alone in person. I look forward to reading more of the author's work. I like her writing style and hope she writes a full length novel some day.
I give the RFID Truancy Solution: 5/5.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
