George Orwell, 1984 (book cover by Olle Eksell, 1959). Read it when I was in Grade Six and still traumatized to this day. Prescient and insightful about the use of media (music, news, television, film) to further the project of tyranny and control.
This book was recommended by one of my students. It's not my typical read, but I did find it difficult to put down. Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel which presents a future American society where books are outlawed and firemen burn any house that contains them. By Elizabeth Perez.
