Morton Rhue is the pen name of successful American children's writer Todd Strasser. Born in New York in 1950, Todd has had more than 140 children's and young adult books published. His most well-known book is The Wave which is a fictionalized account of a fascinating teaching experiment in a California high school in 1967. It was made into a film. Todd continues to live in New York state and has a grown-up family.
Laurie isn't sure what to make of 'The Wave'. It had begun as a simple history experiment to liven up their World War II studies and had become a craze that was taking over their lives. Laurie's classmates are changing from normal teenagers into chanting, saluting fanatics. 'The Wave' is sweeping through the school - and it is out of control. Laurie's friends scoff at her warnings but she knows she must make them see what they have become before it's too late.
