Theo Reese is your typical teenager. He hangs out with his friends, plays hockey, and likes to make-out with his boyfriend, Eddie. He has a pretty decent relationship with his parents, school's not so bad ... he's even so smart that he takes a few classes at MIT. Yes, THAT MIT. Oh and on the side he just so happens to work for a super secret organization called Tactical Operation Support as a computer wiz and even has a cool codename--Winger. His parents work for the same organization, and together they secretly help keep people safe. It's not such a bad gig, though Theo has to lie to his friends and to Eddie, something that's getting harder and harder to manage the longer he has to do it. Theo loves helping people and he's pretty stoked at being able to use his brilliant brain to solve complex technical computer problems. When things start getting dangerous, for not only Theo but his family and the agents of TOS, Theo begins to understand exactly how much his double life might cost him.
Guys, Tracker Hacker was tons of fun! Fast paced, witty, and exciting, it's everything a fantastic YA book (well, any book I suppose) should be. Theo was equal parts sarcastic and sweet. He has a huge, important job and he's brilliant, but he also has responsibilities to his hockey teammates and to Eddie. It's not always easy to balance and he makes mistakes, but he tries his best. I really liked his relationship with Eddie. They were fantastic together and you could definitely tell they love one another. I enjoyed the conflict here, of Theo having to hide this super secret part of his life, but wanting and trying to make time to spend with Eddie. The whole plot really grabbed my attention and didn't let go though the tech speak got a bit hard to follow at times and seemed to slow the story down in a few spots. All in all though, Tracker Hacker was a roller coaster of a ride and I can't wait to see where Jeff Adams takes the series next. Be sure to check it out, you won't be sorry!
I was easily involved in the story, but there were moments in the middle of the book where I lost interest. I was back on track at the end with some very interesting events and overall I liked it very much. The plot was great. I was worried all the time about how things might work with Eddie and whether Theo might tell him what was going on or deal with the consequences. I think the biggest issues I had with the book were the tech stuff. I struggle a lot trying to understand what everything they were saying meant, and fail horrendously. That was the reason why I lost interest at times, when I didn’t understand because, even though it was part of the story, I think there were too much details about tech. The mystery part of the book was nice, it had some ups and downs but near the end everything was very exciting.
I also had some issues trying to remember everyone’s name and code name, it became frustrating at times and I had to stop and think who they were talking about, while I keep reading it got better but it wasn’t that easy. I had an especial soft point for the villains, I felt very intrigued by them and I would love to know more about them.
Another thing I liked was the family. When mom was being just mom and not the agent, and the interactions between every member of the family were very caring and sweet. Overall this was a great book. I had some problems with it but I guess it had more to do with my lack of knowledge about technology than the story itself.
I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review.
