About this title

Synopsis:

A group of poverty-stricken, rural children are caught up in a secret world of organized fighting, blaming their injuries on the new skate park that the town has just built. Friends are pitted against friends, as parents, teachers, and officials strangely ignore it all. Society spirals out of control, and when one middle school teacher insists on finding the truth as to why so many students have black eyes, she is mysteriously killed.

'Readers will find this book difficult to put down as the tale deftly unfolds and the mystery deepens. Greenberg has plotted his novel very carefully and it shows: his page-turning events fit the tradition of the best mysteries and thrillers. 'You Have The Right To Remain Violent' falls into the tradition of Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery' and George Orwell's '1984,' but in Greenberg's world, violence and corruption can be redeemed.' - Ellen Tanner Marsh, NY Times Best Selling Author

'You Have The Right To Remain Violent' puts friend against friend, as the kids participate in a horrifying game of society gone sour.

Although fictional, this dramatic thriller is loaded with reality, about violence and its effects on children, and also about placing too much power into the hands of too few people with too few checks. It's a little about our leaders always encouraging the violence, so that they have a need to implement security and control. And it's a little about children, surrounded by violence in their everyday lives, and how they ultimately use what they've been taught to create a shocking, and horrifying ending.

'A real wake-up call for America.'

'Kids in this country are purposely fighting each other, just so they can video it and post it on the internet. All they know is violence. Who is to blame for that? While our leaders are supposed to protect and serve, I see it differently. I see them protecting corruption in order to ob-serve... to observe, and control us all!' - Joel A. Greenberg, Author

From the Inside Flap:

"Readers will find this book difficult to put down as the tale deftly unfolds and the mystery deepens. Greenberg has plotted his novel very carefully and it shows: his page-turning events fit the tradition of the best mysteries and thrillers. He creates for the readers an emotional investment in the characters; the further we get into the novel, the more we genuinely care about their fate." - Ellen Tanner Marsh, NY Times Best Selling Author Children are caught up in a secret world of youth organized fighting, blaming their injuries on the new town skate park. Friends turn on one another, as parents, teachers, and officials strangely ignore it all. When one teacher insists on finding the truth as to why so many students have black eyes, she is mysteriously killed. What can explain all the sinister events going on in the small town of Danville? "Greenberg intends for Danville to be an archetype for any town, including yours and mine, to teach an old lesson that needs to be continually taught: how corruption and dystopia inevitably result when too much power is invested in the hands of too few people with too few checks. 'You Have The Right To Remain Violent' falls into the tradition of Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery' and George Orwell's '1984,' but in Greenberg's world, violence and corruption can be redeemed." - Ellen Tanner Marsh, NY Times Best Selling Author After reading Joel Greenberg's book 'You Have The Right To Remain Violent,' I feel it would lend itself well to the big screen." - Rex Trailer, Actor, Producer, Director "You Have The Right To Remain Violent" puts friend against friend, as the kids participate in a horrifying game of society gone sour. Who can you trust when everyone is forced into a situation to be out for themselves? How far would you go if you had the right to remain violent? Would you fight your friends? Would you kill? Would you survive? Written as if spoken from the mouths of today's youth, the book's sometimes harsh language is unfortunately accurate, as the author spent months listening to middle school students speak prior to creating this work. "You Have The Right To Remain Violent" is packed with dramatic, descriptive scenes, and it's sure to be a classic work of action-packed mystery fiction for years to come.
