A blockbuster series, the Block City Wars tells the story of three teenage boys who find themselves caught up in a chain of violence. After one of them gets killed, they must struggle to find out who is responsible and bring their gang of neighborhood “friends” together. This book is fast-paced and has great adventure elements, which make it worth reading right away. I definitely recommend this book to any teen with a big interest in guns, crime, and the city.
When was Block City written? This book was first published in 2021 and remains one of the top books on my list. In fact, it is one of my all-time favorites. The storyline is fast-moving and the plot is solid, using colorful and interesting fonts and photographs to convey the gritty city life.

As you read along, several interesting things will become clear including some information about why the military took an interest in what was then called Pearl Harbor, an interesting look at how the Emulator project was started, and details on how the military bases were formed after Pearl Harbor.

I really enjoyed reading about all the behind-the-scenes action as it related to creating the app. I especially liked the portions that gave a detailed account of how the actual events of the block city wars were handled on a day-to-day basis. There were many interesting details including how the military began working on this program, how it was sent to Vietnam, and how it was received. While the timeline did eventually go into the current version of Android, it was nice to have a glimpse into how things worked back then.
