A quick and short book about the dangers of collective manipulation based on a true story that took place after a high school history teacher in Palo Alto, CA in 1969 took a World War II lesson about Nazi Germany way too far. The teacher turned the student's curiosity about how German citizens allowed holocaust atrocities to occur to a whole other level by conducting an experiment that ultimately brainwashed a majority of the kids to become a fascist group called the Wave, with the teacher as their leader. Now I am not sure how accurate the book is to the actual story but I can definitely picture this happening in modern day America given our current social and political situation. The book reminded me how easily history can repeat itself under the right circumstances, which something we should be very cognizant of.

This book was required reading when I was in school. It is a great way to show middle-schoolers how peer pressure and the desire to "fit in" can have major, and very negative impacts on people and society. I bought this book for my son to read. It helped him understand how events like the Holocaust can even happen.

I read this as a teen. Bought it to share with my son. Quick read. Interesting ideas about how easily we are duped by charismatic leaders and how teens should be taught to think independently before following a crowd. Ending was a little anticlimactic, but otherwise enjoyed it.

The book sends an important message in this time of near fascism. It is a bit simplie, over exxagerrated. The plot is good, but the details don't always make sense.

Fast, easy read, very relevant to what is going on in this country now.

was received in the condition promised...actually better than I thought it would be. It arrived when promised. I remember reading this in 8th grade and am planning on having my son read it too when he studies that period in history.

When young teacher Ben Ross is teaching his high school history class, he starts an experiment to teach his students how the Nazis could take such a powerful hold over a group, how groupthink and fascism can grow. A powerful, disturbing, thought-provoking young adult novel that places history and psychology in the contemporary setting, generating many unsettling questions. Not particularly a well-written novel (characters are pretty flat, and I'm not sure that a novel is the best medium for this story), but one that is refreshing and highly significant, if not particularly convincing. Grade: B+
Well worth reading after the advice to do so by another friend. Perhaps it is a bit simplistic, but I appreciated the author's purpose. In one place it is called a novel, yet in others it was called factual. I'm still not certain which is true. I could appreciate the appeal an experiment such as this could have on others of many ages.
