“What is the silence of six, and what are you going to do about it?”
These are the last words uttered by 17-year-old Max Stein’s best friend, Evan: Just moments after hacking into the live-streaming Presidential debate at their high school, he kills himself.
Haunted by the image of Evan’s death, Max’s entire world turns upside down as he suddenly finds himself the target of a corporate-government witch-hunt. Fearing for his life and fighting to prove his own innocence, Max goes on the run with no one to trust and too many unanswered questions. Max must dust off his own hacking skills and maneuver the dangerous labyrinth of underground hacktivist networks, ever-shifting alliances, and virtual identities — all while hoping to find the truth behind the “Silence of Six” before it’s too late.” (Goodreads)
I really loved this book. It was one very nice surprise! The silence of six is an exciting page-turner. My head was completly into this story from page one. It’s action pack and emotional (that ending!!!!). Max was such a great character, he’s well-developed and interesting. I had a very stronge connection with him, i cared so much. He is in pain, but he is trying his best to keep his head focus on what he has to do. The story is about hackers and sometimes i did get lost in all the geek terms used, but overall it was pretty fascinating. I don’t know much about hacking, but it felt real to me. The plot was unpredictable and exciting. I also really liked Myers writing and i can’t wait to see what she will create next.
