Ever wonder who was the first kid to keep a wallet on a big chunky chain, or wear way-too-big pants on purpose? What about the mythical first guy who wore his baseball cap backwards? These are the Innovators, the people on the very cusp of cool. Seventeen-year-old Hunter Braque's job is finding them for the retail market.
But when a big-money client disappears, Hunter must use all his cool-hunting talents to find her. Along the way he's drawn into a web of brand-name intrigue-a missing cargo of the coolest shoes he's ever seen, ads for products that don't exist, and a shadowy group dedicated to the downfall of consumerism as we know it.

Scott Brick expertly draws the listener into the world of consumer cool in this satire of the hip world of teens. Hunter is a New York City teen who is paid by corporations to spot the newest trends in cool. He combines his unique skills and the talents of his friend, Jen, to investigate a missing person and solve a conspiracy aimed at the center of consumer culture. Brick's ease with slang and hip terms allows even uncool listeners to become involved in this plot against the consumer, and his fast pace keeps the adventure moving. Brick easily communicates a wide range of emotions in this fun story. W.V.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
