The Age of Amy: Behind the Fun Zone

Book #4

"A deftly crafted novel that demonstrates author Bruce Edwards' mastery of the young adult fiction genre. Behind the Fun Zone is an unfailingly entertaining read from beginning to end."

—Midwest Book Review

"I enjoyed the action and adventure in Behind the Fun Zone. Edwards gives the reader something to think about in this fantasy that points out the dangers inherent in technology. His specter of a commercially based totalitarianism is properly spooky."

—Readers' Favorite

"In addition to being a commentary about people's addiction to technology, Behind the Fun Zone also covers issues of privacy and conformity that are an issue for people today. It is a fun and breezy read, made all the more satisfying because it asks so many important questions."
