Ada, known online as the Dark Angel, is involved with a secret group that challenges its members to hack important systems. Ada is one of the best in the competitions and sometimes tries to protect the victims of the hacks from the others whose goals might be more malicious. The group is betrayed and Ada ends up being forced into rehab at the ReBoot facility.
The place is beyond creepy, not to mention it is off the electronic grid. All of the kids have different ‘antisocial’ tendencies and histories of computer addiction. Ada isn’t sure if she wants to become friends with any of them as she resigns herself to her thirty (30) days of imprisonment. As Ada begins to make contact with the others, she learns that too many former attendees have died shortly after being released from the facility. Now Ada is intent on discovering what Simone did while she was at ReBoot that might have led to her death. Ada finds secret rooms in the old building and knows that she is on to some strange behavior especially after repeated near death accidents during the academy ‘games’. Can Ada uncover a dark plot before she becomes a victim too?
I enjoyed the different characters that the author created to share this story, even referring to them as “The Breakfast Club of the Cybersphere”. Some are darker and more insular while others are more like regular kids who have gotten sucked into the world of technology. There are several twists that made the story interesting and helped me skim over the teen angsty elements (that were appropriate to the characters but not my thing). The pacing and suspense is good so that the story moved along well. There is a touch of romance too that develops through conflict and is handled nicely. I do hope the version I read was an ARC version as it was absolutely full of grammar and typo errors.
I appreciated the message this story may have especially for young people (and their parents) as the teens become more involved with and reliant upon cell phones and computer life. I know myself how easy it is to lose hours of time while visiting social media or playing online games. The author provides a message that it is important to stay in live contact with family and friends. I recommend this to readers who enjoy YA issues in a story that includes technology and suspense elements.
I was invited to read this by the author who provided an ebook copy.
Ada loves being online and hacking which she does for good reasons not bad. Ada loved hacking with her best friend Simone but then she was sent to Reboot and a few days after being released Simone committed suicide. After entering Reboot herself Ada learns that Simone is not the only person that has spent time in Reboot to have had an accident or killed themselves upon their release. Ada will find out what happened to her friend and all the other patients at Reboot if it is the last thing she does.
Invading someone’s privacy for whatever reason good or bad is wrong. A PC is called a PC or personal computer for a reason. Personal means it belongs to that person and that person only and no one has the right to snoop around on or in it. Snooping on someone’s PC is like going through their purse or billfold or that is how I see it.
But I don’t see anything wrong with someone being on the computer 24/7 if it is for goods reasons or they are not doing anything wrong or illegal that is. To me being on the computer all day or watching tv all day is the same there is no difference. You are hooked on the tv or you are hooked on the pc.
When I read the summary for ReWired I knew I had to read it as I love being on the computer all day myself. But I can’t image being sent away to boot camp for doing something you love as long as it does not interfere with your daily life like going to school or work.
ReWired is filled with lots of twist and turns that will keep you turning the pages just waiting to see what is around the next corner. Ada is a good person with a great big heart that will do anything for her friends.
If you love a good mystery with a little computer time thrown in like social networking or coding then you are going to love ReWired.
