ARC Review DOUBLE DIGIT by ANNABEL MONAGHAN

To say eighteen-year-old Farrah Higgins—or Digit—is good at math is a laughable understatement. She’s 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 Defense’s 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

MY THOUGHTS
LOVE, LOVED IT


Digit is nearly recovered from her near-death experience at the hands of eco-terrorists and is madly, deeply in love with her special FBI guy, John.  She also gets to finally attend her dream school, MIT, where she can "be with her people".  Her once-hope to lose her nickname is quickly forgotten when she realizes that she is truly is "Digit" and her fellow students embrace her and her gift for numbers.  She just doesn't realize that she is still the terrorist target of Jonas Furnis.  John decides that the pair need to take a break while she explores this new universe of school.   Of course, she is heartbroken but accepts it.

As Digit feels her way around this place, she accepts a job as an assistant compiling reports for a professor.  When she want to go to a toga party, she doesn't want to wait for a report from the military, so she figures out how to hack into their system.  What Digit doesn't realize is that everyone from the CIA, FBI and her enemy, Jonas are all watching her every keystroke.  Her first call is to John so he can rescue her.

Digit is just one smart character and that is why I adore her.  The fact that she can outsmart even the brainiest people without using any thing else but her mind is such a positive force in young adult stories these days.  She doesn't need super powers.  I hope there are many more installments of Digit to come and will cover her time at MIT.
