The Tomorrow City by: Monica Hughes

The Tomorrow City
Monica Hughes
Methuen Publishing

ISBN 9780416224207

I read a number of Monica Hughes' books back in 1999 because she is the favorite author of a friend. Though some were harder to find, I enjoyed all I could lay my hands on. Her books have been translated into dozens of languages.

This is an interesting little book about a society's attempt to make a perfect city - a city run by a computer, where the computer becomes the tyrant instead of man. The fight to save the city is lead by two friends, Caroline the computer designer's daughter and her friend David.

This is a great book and I highly recommend it.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
