Tell Me About It
To say eighteen-year-old Farrah Higgins—or Digit—is good at math is a laughable understatement. She’s been cracking codes since childhood, and is finally at home with “her people” at MIT in Cambridge. Her talents are so off the charts that her laptop is under surveillance by both the CIA and an ecoterrorist named Jonas Furnis. So when she thoughtlessly hacks into the Department of Defense’s database, she lands in serious hot water inside and outside the law. Readers will be sad to turn the last page of this suspenseful, sassy, super smart thriller, the sequel to A Girl Named Digit.
My Thoughts
I've had Double Digit for a while, but I was worried I would not remember what had happened so I had a quick recap of the first book, and then began reading.

Digit is in MIT, and faces new challenges, mainly meeting her new roommate, and getting along with her fellow students. She doesn't want to come across as a geek, but wants to be 'normal', and hopes that people don't find out who she is. She quickly finds out that normal isn't so easy, not only is her relationship with John on the rocks, but he is also the only person who can help her.

We all know Digit is incapable of being normal, and not only does she stumble upon a hacker group who end up being great friends, she also makes the decision to hack into DOD to save time so she can go to a toga party, and that little slip up brings attention to her, from the good guys and the bad guys.
Pretty soon Digit is in some serious trouble, and in all honesty, if Jonas wasn't so crazy he really did make quite a few valid points...if you ignore the whole 'killing everyone' part of his plan.

Final Verdict
Double Digit was a book that had everything I love about Digit, with new problems to solve, and new possible love interests. This was a relatively quick read for me and while it didn't blow me away, it was enjoyable.
