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. Listeners will be sad to reach the end of this suspenseful, sassy, super smart thriller, the sequel to A Girl Named Digit.

The wisdom is reaching far beyond what we see. Delight in the journey
The second installment in the life of Digit Higgins was as good as the first left me eagerly anticipating the third. I purchased the first book in this series at the behest of my daughter. I'm probably more enthusiastic about it now than she is. In this selection Digit is off to MIT, or as her brother refers to it Nerdvana. Digit's roommate is a girl named Tiki who wanted to study art at Brown but chose to attend MIT because her boyfriend was there. When Digit sees him kissing another girl she attempts to cushion the blow for Tiki without actually informing her what she's seen.
A convoluted series of events moves Digit to hack into the DOD's computers. Simultaneously minions pf Jonas Franzen attempt another kidnapping of our girl Digit. Her boyfriend John of the FBI; now her ex-boyfriend rides to the rescue; with a complication. That is as much as can be revealed without a spoiler alert.
There is more of the spy thriller genre than there needs to be in the book. Ms. Monoghan doesn't do that as well as she does the academic and math portions of the worth. Hopefully in the future there will be more concentration of those.
