“There is truth to be shared. Let us begin…”

Volatile mathematical genius Mallory Park is living two lives. In one, she is balancing senior year with looking after her little brother and troubled ex-Marine father; in the other, she spends her nights glued to her laptop, breaking into some of the world’s most secure systems as the hacker Echo Six.

As part of a corruption-exposing cyber network called the Forum, Mallory is far more at ease among the codes and hidden identities of her online world than she has ever been in the real one, but when other hackers start to go missing, she finds herself caught up in a web of secrets that could have repercussions far beyond both.

When anyone can be a name on a screen, how do you know who to trust?

***Lauren – NerdGirlSphinx’s  Review***

This was such a good book!  I read it in two sittings (only because I started it in the evening), and it nearly killed me to put it down.

This was such a refreshing change of pace for the recent YA books I have read.  Mallory is a fantastic MC that did not even once get on my nerves.  That alone is an amazing feat for any author that writes YA.  She wasn’t whiny and she took responsibility for her own actions.

Even though I guessed who the big bad was, I didn’t mark my review down for that.  Because it’s rare that I’m ever left surprised once I reach the big reveal.

I would recommend this book to anyone age 14+, because even though she isn’t a typical teenager I think she would be very relatable to anyone. Read this book.  ((And if you’re English, there is a separate version for you, apparently!))
