HACKER by Ted Dekker
"My name is Nyah and I'm a hacker. I know things most people would never believe. Things that shouldn't exist, but do."
Seventeen-year-old Nyah Parks is a genius hacker who makes a living by cracking the firewalls of the world's largest corporations. But when the biggest job of her life goes wrong, she's plunged into a desperate situation with only one way out: one last hack that will either save her or kill her. So begins Hacker, a modern-day parable that examines the staggering world around us, the seen and the unseen, and reminds us that there's far more to who we are than meets the eye.
Typical Dekker novel...exciting, creepy, definitely stirs the imagination. I read the book in a day not giving a thought to the things I needed to be doing, Dekker's novels do that to me! :)
Nyah will make her way into your heart as you see just how much she loves her mother and what she will do to help her get better. I liked her friend and thought the two were the perfect characters. Much braver than I will be ever be. I found the world of hacking extremely interesting...we have no idea how vulnerable we really are.
I love that he keeps the story going full speed making each page as interesting as the last. I finished the book and just sat there thinking "wow, what a great story and a great talent".
I received a copy of this book free from Worthy Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
