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 cybercriminal before they can escalate from harmless tampering...to all out murder.

I really liked this book although it was a bit of a build up to then just end.... your waiting waiting waiting and then suddenly oh! is that it. its a good story though.
I loved the interaction between the 2 main boy and girl charecters.
I like the ending. I like how it doesnt work out who you think.
I already read both this book and the sequel when I was offered a chance to review the audio version in exchange for an honest review.
Already knowing what was going to happen well in advance, it made this much that much more enjoyable. I caught a few things I didn't my first go round... so that's a thing.
One thing that really amused me about Moira Todd is how much she reminded me of Velma from Scooby Doo. I have no idea if that was intentional, but it fits Farris so much – her being a computer genius and whatnot.
I think she really brought out the story in a positive light. There were parts of the ebook that annoyed me a bit when I read them, but it felt more acceptable while I listened to the audio version.
I do hope Moira Todd is going to narrate the second book, In Too Deep, as well.
This is one of the most entertaining mysteries I've read this year. I was guessing and fully engaged from 1st click.
Very much at the Top
The only other book I've read about Hackers is Meredith Wilds Hacker series even though it is a completely different genre of book so I'm going to say I would compare it to them. Ones young adult and the other adult
She brings Farris alive she lets you see everything happening in your minds eye with her reading.
Yes I thought it was fabulous it made me gasp at one point in the book
I got this book from Sherry for a honest review. This is a great book. It's got mystery and intrigue also military secrets. I loved how Farris would do anything to help her dad. the best thing though was no cliffhanger this part of the book ended well now in need book 2 to read more of Farris' story
"Great young adult story"
This was the perfect mix of mystery, romance, and humor. The story is told from the point of view of Ferris, a smart, quick witted high schooler who just happens to be a hacker genius. It tackles themes of bullying, mental illness, and sexual assault in an authentic way. But the romance and humor doesn't disappoint either. Would recommend for teens.
