Trackers: Book One

By Patrick Carman
Rating: 3 3/4 stars

Readers will be hooked by this high tech adventure.  Adam is being interviewed by some kind of authority--we don't know who it is yet--but obviously, Adam seems to be in some kind of trouble.  As the interview begins, Adam explains about how he is a high tech genius, able to program code, fix computers, and invent everything from software to cameras.  In middle school, Adam meets the other "Trackers"--Finn, Lewis and Emily--all of them also technologically adept, and the foursome start making up their own small missions, testing out Adam's new inventions.  Then the unthinkable happens--Adam's precious Vault gets hacked.  The hackers want one thing--for Adam to de-code the most dangerous program out there which will give back door access to the entire World Wide Web, or else Adam's inventions and hard work will be made available to anyone, anywhere.  The Trackers quickly agree to try and chase down the hackers, but their task is much greater than they ever imagined.  Even cooler is that while reading the story, every so often Adam will direct us (the readers) to go online and type in a password which will show us videos of what's been going on with all of the characters.  Super-neat feature!  The story ends abruptly, which lets us know sequels are in the offing.  What is going to happen next?  We won't be able to wait!
