"The Media Betterment Committee has censored an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Iku’s hometown! Iku’s top-ranked Library Forces team must train the local troops to defend the freedom of speech using any means necessary…but the librarians there resent her position and aren’t shy about making their feelings known. Soon Iku’s parents catch wind of her secret life as a member of the Library Forces, with disastrous results!"

Received a review copy from Simon & Schuster Canada.

This volume gets back to the sci-fi element of the plot and deals with Iku's relationship with her parents as the team is sent to her home town to work on a censorship issue at the library there.  I mentioned a couple of books ago that I was ready for more action here, rather than just the romance angle so was well-pleased to enjoy this story. Iku and Dojo's relationship plays only a small part here but it is fun to watch them be together at this awkward stage.  I love it when Dojo calls her "blockhead" like he used to in the past but this time it seems like a term of endearment.  I'm glad this series is managing to keep the censorship plot going along with the side stories.  The book ends in the middle of the action keeping us anxious for the next book which unfortunately we'll have to wait for until April 2014!
