Digit and John are back for a second book and in way over their heads.

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 ecoterror

UGHHHH why why why....why is there a freaking love triangle??? Who cares about this Bass in any way ,shape, or form???

He's just there...and the fact that Digit even CONSIDERS him over John sickens me...also why the waiting nonsense?? In the first book they'd made it quite clear it was fine for Digit to see him on weekends.
Other than that horrible little detail I quite liked the book. Digit was cute, humorous, and a great heroine in general. She got a bit immature and whiny though, although her

O M freakin' G!!!! Why ,oh why do I have to wait a whole year for the fabulous uber romance sequal to one of my new favorite books???? Loved the first book!
After reading....
What a disappointment. I enjoyed the math and the solving of the code, but there was too little actual plot. She spends more time getting into the problem than solving it. there not a lot of romance, too much time was spent dwelling on Bass, and what the heck was that ending? It wasn't very clear at all why she made the decis

I had a lot of 'firsts' with this series.
1. First book that used my favorite subject: Math!
2. First book where the main character wasn't unrealistically brave.
3. First book that raised environmental awareness in a way that wasn't obvious.
4. First book that I actually understand the terrorist group. Well....until the crazy came out.
5. First book with chapter titles that I actually stop to read because they are so great.

Ok I'm annoyed.

I am annoyed because I LOVED A Girl Named Digit. I loved it so much that as soon as I finished reading it, I immediately started Double Digits (the sequel).

I don't even want to rant because I'm still a fan of Annabel Monaghan. But this sequel disappointed me, solely because of the creation of a love triangle (and we all know how much I hate love triangles) that really didn't need to be there. Also sure, Digit started to get annoyed

I enjoy stories about brilliant people so this was a good read for me. The fact that the brilliant person was a teen was even better. It was full of surprises and I have to admit at times quite riveting. I liked the general concept of the story. However, I had a few misgivings about a few things. First, please do a grammar check before the final printing. Second, the relationship between the teenage main character and her 21 yr old FBI boyfriend was a bit unsettling for me. He read more like ano ...more

I have left out a lot of stuff in the above review since it is so far out from the release date.

Just note that this book is made of AWESOME. I am not going to spoil it for you. I know Digit and John break up at the beginning of the book and don't let that make you cry or freak out. Remember John is a lot older than Digit and wise beyond his years. The fact that he sees Digit needs to be on her own says a lot about him as a person. Also remember that 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 ...more

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed A Girl Named Digit last fall (I gave it 4.5 stars), I quickly tweeted my gushing admiration to Annabel Monaghan. My excitement ratcheted up several notches when she replied and told me there was more Digit to come. Yes! So I've been plenty ready for Double Digit.

Digit is at MIT and has found her people - math and science geeks abound. But the past hasn't truly been put to bed: there are issues with boyfriend John and the bad guys are still out there.

In this sequel to A Girl Named Digit, the titular Digit, real name Farrah, is officially a freshman at MIT. After an eventful last year of high school involving lots of math, codebreaking, a fake kidnapping, and taking down an eco-terrorist group, Digit is ready to settle into life in a place with other self-defined nerds where she can finally feel normal. She should have known that she was too far gone for a normal life. She wants her biggest worry to be whether she should do the long distance ...more
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
Double Digit begins when Digit goes to college. Things between her and John are confusing and rocky to her. They aren't exactly going her way. And to get it off her mind, she hangs out with hackers, and ends up creating a code... This lands her into a whole lot more trouble when she makes a terrible mistake. Now, not only is someone after her again, but she's also going to risk being in serious trouble. Add to that the issue with John, and him keeping things from her, just brings her whole world ...more

Digit goes to college at MIT. She manages to make some new friends quickly, including a group of hackers and her RA. In spite of what she thinks, though, she is not out of danger from Jonas Furtis and his group of eco-terrorists.

I'm honestly not sure how I feel, do I prefer the book ending at 123? Sort of. Kind of not really? Do I like the real ending? Ehhhh maybe. Do I like Tiki, Bass, John, & Digit? Yes, but where do I really stand on them, I'm not sure. Book three might help me figure it out... so book three is needed. ...more

I have not read the first book in this series. I found this is a Little Free Lending Library awhile back and was intrigued by the cover. It was even better than I was expecting.

I don't think you necessarily have to read the first book before you read this one, but like most series, it would definitely help if you did. The narration backtracks enough to give you an idea of what happened in the first book so you can get away with not knowing anything

Digit is trying to find her way at MIT. She gets along with her roommate and has a strange attraction to her RA. John is in NYC and they're trying to make long distance work after spending so much time together after her faked kidnapping (in digit, #1). Digit is just trying to fit in, enjoying college classes very much and doesn't want to attract attention to herself. This goes out the window when she hacks into a government website and gets arrested. The entire campus is in an uproar....protest ...more
I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of this book. However, the writing style and brevity of every event did not make it fun to read. Plot twists happened casually and seemed out of place/forced/or just plain awkward. It was also very predictable. However, the concept of a young girl embracing her dreams of using math and computer science/hacking to begin a fruitful career is heartwarming and a good message to be out in the world. In my opinion, this book would be very good for a young budding mathe ...more

This book was a little bit of let down in comparison to the first one. There was a lot of set up and a lot of wrapping up and not a whole lot of the actual plot. The solving of the critical puzzle seemed way to easy. The similar style of coding to what her father did when she was a kid just seemed like a cop out. Also John just kind of sucked. The way he acted was weird. I could have done without the love triangle but I did enjoy Bass’s character. I loved the edition of her brother to her kidnap ...more

This book is amazing! I love it! It deals with the trials and tribulations of long distance relationships, and starting college, and all kinds of amazing topics! The only problem I have is how it ended. To some -me- it ended with what can be called an open-ending. The book was great, and I love it, of course I do, but I just wish there was a better ending or at least a third book to complete the series.

It was a good follow-up to Digit. It’s nice to see Digit growing up a bit. Good characters along with the author’s wit, although it wasn’t as evident in this book. A nice, fun and fast read. I would like to see a Triple Digit!
