Samantha Wallach is like any other seventeen year old. She wants to get her license, go to prom with the cutest boy in school, and pass all her AP tests. When her dad’s bank gets hacked, all her family’s secrets are revealed and nothing will ever be the same.

I honestly loved this book and would share it with anyone who asked me for a good book. I liked this book because it was really relatable. I could relate to Sam in many ways: wanting to pass the driver’s test, go to prom with a cute boy, and pass the AP exams. The story was really good, but sometimes I felt like “can all this really happen to someone at once?” I don’t think anyone would be that unlucky to have as much stuff going wrong as Sam does.

I also really liked the author’s writing style. It was descriptive but not overly descriptive like “oh my gosh, his eyes were as blue as the ocean on a warm summer day with a slight breeze blowing to the north descriptive”, it was just enough to give you a good picture in your mind. I was drawn to it because it relates to teens today.

Also, if we’re being honest the cover really drew me in and so did the title. I also liked the plot of the story, it was really interesting. I’ve never read a book like this where the family gets hacked and their personal life is all over the Internet to see. I thought that would be really interesting to read about.

Overall, I would give this book a 7/10 on a scale from 0-10.
