Hacker: The Outlaw Chronicles by Ted Dekker

Friday, June 6, 2014

"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 unseen, and reminds us that there's far more to who we are than meets the eye.

Goodreads Summary

If you loved "Inception" or "Vanilla Sky" then this mind blowing thrill ride is right up your alley. "Hacker" will mess with your head and keep you guessing yourself and remaining clueless as to what is going to happen next. You will be on the edge of your seat the whole book and never wanting to put this thing down as you follow Nyah and her adventure through her "last hack."

I loved absolutely everything about this book. It is exciting and mysterious and I had to know more and more about Nyah's character as I dove deeper into the book. Her selflessness is honorable and it was great to see this rare trait in a kid. She, as well as the other characters are written with a lot of depth. They all have a story that you want to hear and an adventure to live out. I also love how the book makes you question who you are as a person and second guess your thought process on what is right and wrong. All in all, you need to dive into Nyah's world and get a hold of a copy of this book.
