THE SUCCESSOR
 
 
“They say that every classroom is a battlefield.”
The teacher was facing away from the class and towards the blackboard as he spoke.
Some students took advantage of this inattention to scribble notes or make faces at one another. From his seat at the front of the class, however, one boy with red hair listened with rapt attention. His desk was clean, his uniform crisp, his hair cut precisely according to school guidelines. His hands were clasped behind him and his eyes strayed not once from the front of the room.

REVIEWS

Praise for Truancy City

Praise for Truancy and Truancy Origins

Both nominated for YA Galley Teen Top Ten

“This astounding and action-packed novel by a fifteen-year-old New York City student is sure to appeal to adolescents everywhere….It’s sure to be a big hit, just the kind of subversive tale YA’s recommend to each other.”   —KLIATT, starred review on Truancy

“A big, raw, sprawling action film of a book, combining martial arts, street fighting, midnight raids, rooftop flights, and a high body count…. Action rules, and teen boys will swallow this book at a gulp, demanding more.”  —VOYA on Truancy

“The premise of teens combating an oppressive education system will entice readers.”
—Booklist on Truancy

“Fukui, who is a teen himself, focuses primarily on deftly depicted violence and explosive action sequences that will resonate most with reluctant male readers.”  —Booklist on Truancy Origins

“To anyone who suffered the angst of middle and high school and resented the demands of teachers and other adults, this story will strike a deep chord. Fukui’s tale embodies the teenage fantasy of finally gaining freedom of choice, taking control for those in authority. Fast-paced action, gritty street fights, and satisfying vengeance will definitely carry high appeal for its audience.” 
—RT Book Reviews on Truancy Origins

“Action-packed from beginning to end, the Truancy series could potentially be to teenage boys what Twilight is to teenage girls—an excellent trilogy to be shared with friends. There are enough twists and turns, blood and scheming to keep any teen glued to the couch and reading through the night. Truancy Origins is actually a prequel to Fukui’s Truancy, written when he was only fifteen years old.”
