Hack, by Peter Wrenshall, is a page-turning young adult novel set in the world
of cyber crime. Teenaged computer criminal Karl Ripley is lonely and isolated,
except he has a special skill and he's great at what he does-computer hacking.
But when he breaks into the Pentagon's computer, a friend turns him in and he's
soon arrested and sent to jail. All seems lost until the FBI offers him a job
to act as bait for a terrorist, an offer he can't resist. Tormented by the
friend who turned him in, Karl is obsessed with getting even. But when he meets
a young woman and starts to care for her, he soon finds himself torn between
revenge, his old life of crime, and a new love. But is she who she seems to be?
Brimming with hairpin twists and turns, Hack explores the underbelly of computer
crime. His characters are rich and engaging, and his prose is razor sharp. This
is a wonderful book for any computer fanatic or any young person who enjoys
a great read.
