Review: A Girl Named Digit By: Annabel Monaghan

Title: A Girl Named Digit
Author: Annabel Monaghan
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 192 Pages (June 5th, 2012)
From: the Publisher & Amazon Vine
Format: ARC

Synopsis: 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 . . .
 Review: 5 Stars - Annabel Monaghan’s A Girl Named Digit is a fantastic contemporary read with brilliant characters, thrilling plot and so much more that I didn’t want this one to end.

When Farrah aka ‘Digit’ is hanging out with her friends, watching one of her favorite shows, she notices something. Some numbers that appear on the screen and over the course of three weeks, she’s not sure what to make of them. See, Digit is a genius when it comes to all things numbers. She’s able to figure all things math and numbers out in her head in seconds. She can see patterns in things, which is where the nickname comes from. She just wants to be a normal teen girl and hides this part of who she is. Yet the numbers she sees’s on the screen she just can’t ignore.

Let’s just say that these numbers land her in some major trouble and she’s forced to go into protection with the FBI. With her help and the help of her protector John, together the two work together to stay save and try to figure out what the bad guys are going to do next. 

Mr. FBI agent, John is an interesting character as well. Monaghan did an amazing job making her characters well rounded and highly entertaining. So much so that I just couldn’t get enough! Seriously, when I finish it I wanted more. 

The story and plot found in this title were fast moving and thrilling, hence one of the reasons why I just couldn’t get enough of this book! The building & budding relationship between Digit and John might have been quick because the whole story happens over a short period of time, but it didn’t feel that way at all. It never felt rushed and I honestly believe it’s because of Monaghan’s writing and storytelling that made this such a solid well written tale.

All in all, I am so happy that I recently was told this is a must read title and now it’s my turn to tell you all about how much I seriously loved this one. I highly recommend A Girl Named Digit to all who enjoy or are looking for a contemporary that has it all – characters, story, fast paced and epic chapter titles that’ll make you smile. I’m seriously looking forward to more from Monaghan in the future. Happy Reading.
