The Wave by Todd Strasser
The Wave by Todd Strasser
4.0 out of 5 stars An important lesson, July 12 2004
I'm surprised at the reviewers who have expressed incredulity over how so many students could get caught up in such a movement. That sort of denial about the power of wanting to be part of something bigger than yourself is exactly how. That wanting can only be channeled in a safe, productive manner when we fully acknowledge and understand it and learn to control it instead of letting it control us. The readers who didn't learn this lesson are, sadly, the ones most likely to get caught up in something like The Wave.
