In an alternate world, in a nameless totalitarian city, the autocratic Mayor rules the school system with an iron fist, with the help of his Educators. Fighting against the Mayor and his repressive Educators is a group of former students called the Truancy, whose goal is to take down the system by any means possible--at any cost.
“Truancy is ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ for science fiction. Isamu Fukui delivers a well-written and passionate story somewhere between George Orwell and Pink Floyd. His school system gone mad is described with both wit and anger—as if he’s been there himself.”—Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling co-author of Hunters of Dune
“As much insightful social commentary as action-packed coming of age story. All in all, an impressive debut.” —Eric Van Lustbader, New York Times bestselling author of The Testament and The Bourne Legacy
