(From the publisher):
Based on a true incident that took place in a high school history class in Palo Alto in 1969.
As they study World War II, Ben Ross's students can't seem to understand how the German people could have followed Hitler and the Nazis. So Mr Ross creates an experimental movement called The Wave. What begins in a single classroom quickly gathers momentum. By the end of the week, The Wave's motto, "Strength Through Discipline, Strength Through Community, Strength Through Action", governs the entire school. Only 2 students recognize The Wave for what it is and set out to stop it before it is too late.
