    I would like to point out, something i should have said when LotF was first mentioned, that it is a dystopian novel and it is a tad far fetched
    I don't see what is far-fetched about it.
    We hear stories of children doing terrible things all the time.

    very true, but still dystopian novels are not to be taken as this is happening now all over the place, its more of a warning, or mirroring of what has happened in the past.

    Yes. some kids will do the exact same thing as the kids in LotF, but you cannot say that all kids will do it. Likewise, I can't say that all teens are like Alex and his droogs in "A Clockwork Orange"

    I read it on my own, and it wasn't a required reading in any of my English classes.
