Book Review: Echoes by Laura Tisdall



About the book:
“There is truth to be shared. Let us begin…”
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?

My Review:
I read and review a lot of books and sometimes right after finishing one I think I shouldn't have given one of the previous books a high rating because this current book is ten times better. This is the case for this book. I have given out a lot of reviews lately that might have been too generous after reading this one which was sooooo great! This is a well written smart book full of suspense that will keep you reading! The plot is fast paced with solid writing and a well crafted backdrop.  I loved all the high tech hacking aspects. The characters are some of my favorite characters I have read in a while. They all have distinct characteristics that I found realistic and likable. Mallory is going on my top ten favorite fiction female characters list because she is strong, smart, family oriented, and level headed!! I honestly believe this book will capture all readers with any favorite genre already set.
