Hacker by Malorie Blackman

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Hacker by Malorie Blackman is a really brilliant book.

‘Gripping stuff for the computer-literate generation’ Good Book Guide

This book is an amazingly well written book. Malorie can sustain a plot through out the book.

Here is what the first page says: I turned back to the PC screen, ready to start typing. ‘Oh-oh!’ I said. My heart began to hammer inside me. ‘What’s the matter’ Gib asked, stopping his leg exercises to look at the screen. MESSAGE: THIS IS THE SYSTEM OPERATOR. WHO IS USING THIS ACCOUNT? PLEASE IDENTIFY YOURSELF. MESSAGE:

‘Do something!’ Gib said urgently. ‘You’re not supposed to be on the bank’s computer. Vicky, do something. Log off.’

I didn’t even bother to log off. I hit the <BREAK> key twice – fast . . .

When Vicky’s father is arrested, accused of stealing over a million pounds from the bank where he works, she is determined to prove his innocence. But how? There’s only one way – to attempt to break into the bank’s computer files. Even if Vicky is the best HACKER in the world, will she find the real thief before they find her? A page-turner of a novel from the award-winning author of Thief!, Pig-Heart Boy and other titles.
