Echoes by Laura Tisdall
I love the cover! It reminds me of a Mission Impossible theme, without that hokey Tom Cruise, and that show about the boy who did numbers in his head. I’m so interested in this book because of the mental illness storyline:
Volatile mathematical genius Mallory Park is living two lives. In one, she is balancing senior year with looking after her little brother and troubled ex-Marine father; in the other, she spends her nights glued to her laptop, breaking into some of the world’s most secure systems as the hacker Echo Six.
As part of a corruption-exposing cyber network called the Forum, Mallory is far more at ease among the codes and hidden identities of her online world than she has ever been in the real one, but when other hackers start to go missing, she finds herself caught up in a web of secrets that could have repercussions far beyond both. When anyone can be a name on a screen, how do you know who to trust?
I love it when teens lead double lives! This kinda reminds me of Ready Player One. Kinda.
Laura, the author, hails from across the pond so do check the book out. I wish I had more time for a full review cuz Laura also writes plays and musicals so I guess she knows a few things about storytelling! You can find Laura here.
