One brilliant young hacker.
One experimental government aircraft.
One chance to keep it all from going up in flames.
Still recovering from her troubled past, Farris is no stranger to change. But when the military transfers her father across the country to an experimental aircraft squadron, settling in to a new life is the least of her problems. As a series of apparent computer glitches threaten the security of the fleet and the blame falls on her father, she decides to put her computer skills to use digging up the truth. Soon she’s drawn into the perilous world of a hacker who is determined to ground the fleet—at any cost.
When all signs lead to someone close to her as the mastermind, Farris will have to burn more than bridges to get to the truth. She will have to risk her fragile new life to uncover the identity of the cyber criminal before they can escalate from harmless tampering… to all out murder.
My Review: Sherry’s new series is just plain amazing! I love that this series is full of technology. I love technology, and its the field I work in, besides books. So two in one is perfect for me!
Anyhow….Farris and her dad has just moved, once again. She is used to moving, after all its a common thing with the air force. But this time its different. This time its just her and her dad. She’s still dealing with the loss of her mom, a new home, a new school, its all a lot for Farris. And to make it harder, she’s still trying to get the trust back from her dad. So hopefully, everything will become better soon.
They arrive at their new home, start unpacking, and get ready for tomorrow. In the morning, Farris goes to school and her dad heads off to work. Right away things get moving. She makes friends quick. This guy has an interest in her, but she can’t really figure him out just yet. She’s making plans to hang out with these new friends, and school seems to be going pretty well.
Then technical issues have been happening. All the blame has gone onto her dad. So Farris has decided she is going to get to the bottom of things. She will put her skills to use and figure out whats going on and hopefully stop them.
Overall I just loved this book. I ate it all up within a day and a half. (Work got in the way) And I just can’t wait to dive into the next book!
