A Girl Named Digit by Annabel Monaghan

A Girl Named Digit by Annabel Monaghan
Release Date: June 5, 2012
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin

Farrah “Digit” Higgins may be going to MIT in the fall, but this L.A. high school genius has left her geek self behind in another school district so she can blend in with the popular crowd at Santa Monica High and actually enjoy her senior year.  But when Farrah, the daughter of a UCLA math professor, unknowingly cracks a terrorist group’s number sequence, her laid-back senior year gets a lot more interesting. Soon she is personally investigating the case, on the run from terrorists, and faking her own kidnapping—all while trying to convince a young, hot FBI agent to take her seriously. So much for blending in... -

The name of this book leaves a lot to be desired, but the book itself was such a cute one.  I love the idea of a very genius girl.  A lot of the time you read books about a young protigy/genius and it always seems to be a boy.  So it was nice to see a girl being the superbrain in this book.  And you just had to love Farrah/Digit.  She's was brainy, but so quirky.  Her internal thought processes were so funny that I found myself laughing out loud at this book.  But more interesting was just listening to how her brain worked and how she worked things out in her head.

Loved the hot FBI agent.  He was great for her, and I loved how these two interacted together.  Obviously, she's a tiny bit young for him, even though he's a young agent.  But it kind of gave the book a steamy quality, because there was that touch of the forbidden to it.

The book, to me, was just about perfect because it had the romance, the intrigue and mystery and suspense.  They're running from bad guys and trying to figure out who all the players are and bring them down.

The book was faced paced and exciting.  The writing was entertaining and sparkling with great banter between the two main characters.  This was just a really fun book and I would highly recommend it.  Don't judge it by its name!
