Synopses & Reviews
To say eighteen-year-old Farrah Higgins—or Digit—is good at math is a laughable understatement. Shes been cracking codes since childhood, and is finally at home with “her people” at MIT in Cambridge. Her talents are so off the charts that her laptop is under surveillance by both the CIA and an ecoterrorist named Jonas Furnis. So when she thoughtlessly hacks into the Department of Defenses database, she lands in serious hot water inside and outside the law. Readers will be sad to turn the last page of this suspenseful, sassy, super smart thriller, the sequel to A Girl Named Digit.
“Gemma Halliday delivers a fun, sassy read that has you turning pages so fast, youll be breathless.” C.C. Hunter, author of Born at Midnight
“Merry and often suspenseful. A pleasant, funny, chick-lit mystery.” Kirkus Reviews
“Halliday effectively combines a murder mystery with daily high school drama. Sharp humor is layered throughout the novel (fans of Veronica Mars will likely appreciate this one).” Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
“Halliday has her finger on the pulse of high-schoolers, whether goth, jock, prude, or computer nerd. With red herrings aplenty and a wicked pace, this relentlessly pulls the reader along to anexplosive conclusion.” Booklist
“This fun and outrageous mystery is a perfect mix of humor and horror that will have readers laughing while they try to figure out ‘whodunit. ” School Library Journal
"Digit's first-person narrative immediately engages readers with low-key realistic scenes, insightful character portrayals, and amusing moments before ratcheting up the tension with high drama and action. A well-paced addition to the Digit series."
First I find out that my boyfriend is cheating on me. Then hes pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And now hes depending on me to clear his name. Seriously
As much as I wouldnt mind watching him squirm, I know that hes innocent. So Im brushing off my previously untapped detective skills and getting down to business. But I keep tripping over dead bodies and Im still no closer to figuring out who did it. And whats worse: all signs seem to point to me as the killers next victim.
I really need to pick a better boyfriend next time.
It's Digit's first year at MIT, where she hopes to finally lead a normal life. But Jonas Furnis, the ecoterrorist she foiled before, knows where she is, and he's gunning for her.
