Double Digit by Annabel Monaghan Review

"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."

OMG! I want the sequel to this book! I want the sequel! But even if there's a sequel, I will probably have to wait two years of eating ice cream to finally get my hands on the book. Errr! Why did I read this book? Oh yes. I have to keep my out for Digit. She's simply amazing and truly one of the kind. She didn't make me feel dumb, like what Independent Study reduce me to being. I'm not kidding. Just read my rants on that part. Actually, I have a better idea. Don't read my rants. I don't want you to see how bad I've become. (No cuss words, as usual. At least I don't include profanity in most of my reviews. Sorry can't remember if I did write profanity or not).

A Girl Named Digit started off with a bang. I totally wanted to see where this go. I was so excited when I saw a copy of Double Digit at my local library (sorry, don't buy stuff because I'm cheap). I came home as fast as I could (Hate reading books in public; especially that awkward moment when you start crying in the middle of a classroom. Did that once! Never trying that again, if I could). Anyway, when I read the first page of foreshadowing, I couldn't wait to start reading this book. Ahh! Digit has gotten me Digfanatic. (Get it?)

Part of it was because of John. All I know is that he's a keeper, other than that slight fact about his father (sounds like Draco Malfoy, huh?). Anyway, it's nice to see him take a step away from dependent. He's becoming his own person.

Digit is really sane, for most of the book, despite being kidnapped, threatened, and nearly killed. She acted better than I thought she would. Overall, I think her mind has adapted to the situation since the last "kidnapping." Surprisingly, I may add. Perhaps, it's because Jonas Furnis is evenly balanced? 

Oooo! The ending is so good! I really, really want to get ahold of the sequel (It looks like there's a sequel). That is the best twist yet! I can't wait for Annabel Monaghan to announce something about the third book. I need the third book! I need it! Someone check my pulse!

What's the most undeniably irresistible part of Double Digit is the humor. Oh my goodness! I have so many feelings. So many quotes I would love to share. So much humor! I admit that this is even better than A Girl Named Digit.

Fine! One quote: (Or maybe two).
"Not only did I not want to think about John; I also did not want to rehash the ins and outs of why he may have broken up with me. Or whatever. 'These days the only guy I'm interested in is Professor Halsey.'
'That's unsettling.'
'He's all I think about.'
'He's eighty.'" -Digit and Bass, talking about the guys Digit is interested in.
Second quote: 
"'I'm calling my dad." John got up and resumed his pacing as soon as Mr. Bennett answered. "Dad, I need help. They came after Digit—she barely got away. No. Not the National Security Agency. Jonas Furnis. Wait. Why?' His head came up slowly and his eye met mine. 'She's a college student, a kid. Sorry, not a kid, but come on. She's never...Fine. Hang on.' John put the phone to his chest. 'Digit, can you give me any reason in the world why the NSA may want you for questioning about espionage?'" -John, on the phone with his dad.
I love the first quote. Digit is only interested in one guy and that's Professor Halsey, who's eighty years old. Total LOL moment.
