Readers' Favorite 5 Star Review

Wow! Just wow! How's that for a review? I just finished reading author Sherry D. Ficklin's novel, Playing with Fire, Book One in her new Hackers series, and I must say that I am simply blown away! Follow the story of Farris, an unusually talented young hacker, as she tries to use her skills to protect her father from taking the blame on a government project gone wrong. The further she falls into this sticky web of intrigue and sinister plots, the more she realizes that if she doesn't act, the lives of many are at risk. But with action, she's putting her own life and the lives of those she loves in danger. What will Farris decide? You'll need to read the book to find out!

I loved this book. Loved. It. Author Sherry D. Ficklin has done it again, writing a book that is simply un-put-downable. She has done a fabulous job in developing characters that the reader will relate to, root for, and continue to think about long after the book is done. If that's not a hallmark of a great writer, I don't know what is. The scenes she's written are so realistic that the reader will feel completely sucked into them, heart pounding. Any reader, whether young adult or not, who enjoys action, suspense, thrillers or a great mystery will love Playing with Fire. I highly recommend this book, and can't wait to jump into my next read by a new favorite author, Sherry D. Ficklin!

From the Author

The Geek Girl Mystery series is (currently) open ended. Each book is a complete mystery, with overarching personal story lines. It focuses on teen angst and clever detective work over technical jargon. Anyone looking for a how to book on hacking, this one probably isn't for you. However, if you're looking for a thrilling, romantic mystery, this one might just be right up your alley! I hope you have as much fun reading them as I do writing them! ~Sherry
