Publisher's Summary

An unforgettable novel from the New York Times best-selling Gordon Korman.

Link, Michael, and Dana live in a quiet town. But it's woken up very quickly when someone sneaks into school and vandalizes it with a swastika.

Nobody can believe it. How could such a symbol of hate end up in the middle of their school? Who would do such a thing?

Because Michael was the first person to see it, he's the first suspect. Because Link is one of the most popular guys in school, everyone's looking to him to figure it out. And because Dana's the only Jewish girl in the whole town, everyone's treating her more like an outsider than ever.

The mystery deepens as more swastikas begin to appear. Some students decide to fight back and start a project to bring people together instead of dividing them further. The closer Link, Michael, and Dana get to the truth, the more there is to face - not just the crimes of the present, but the crimes of the past. 

With Linked, Gordon Korman, the author of the acclaimed novel Restart, poses a mystery for all listeners where the who-did-it isn't nearly as important as the why.

it is amazing I loved it

this book is a kids book and would be fine for all ages but I would recommend it to older kids because although it can be pretty funny at times it is also extremely heavy and it is important to understand the significance of what the kids or doing. I'm 15 so I can relate to many of these kids with not understanding the full meaning of a swastika but man did this make me think about it. it is impossible to wrap my head around the fact that 6 million Jewish people were killed. this book will make you cry and laugh. it was written and read beautifully I loved it.😁🥲😥❤

Another great story!

Thus reminds me of Gordon's book on WW2, which was entertaining but sheds light on the reality of war. Linked was also entertaining and humorous but serious as well. A great listen with a great message, while not being overdone.

Too Heavy as well as cliche. Boring read.?

I love Gordon Norman but this was a heavy departure from fun stories by the author. I get the attention needed and given to racism and I am a minority. I get it. It was just boring. Dragged was too serious to hold my attention. We are dealing with a pandemic, Covid 19. We are dealing with racism against more than one race. The timing for this book seems more negative at a time when more negative is less needed. This story was not New and not worth the time and lost me. First time ever that I just stopped listening to the book. Having full cast did not make the story better.

Way WAY better than I expected!! Go GK!

My kids and I have loved Gordon Korman since we were literally rolling on the floor with laughter over 20 years ago. (We were reading while we were laying on the floor together. ) "No coins please" is our favorite among many.

Inspiring Tolerance Education

This story was so powerful for children and adults alike. It brought me to tears, while it also made me smile as the characters learned incredible lessons about the local and global history and the critical need for these stories to continue to be told and not forgotten.

Not Korman’s normal but still great

This book is more serious than Korman’s other works but it is still good. It deals with a serious topic in a respectful way that kids will understand.
