Waiting on Wednesday: A Girl Named Digit

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Goodreads:

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 . . .


A Girl Named Digit by Annabel Monaghan will be released by Houghton Mifflin Books for Children on June 5, 2012.

The main character sounds like the kind of person who would have been in my very nerdy social circle in high school (and the book takes place around where I grew up). But none of us were cracking terrorists’ codes in high school as far as I know. Nor were there a lot of hot FBI agents hanging around, unfortunately.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  • Ooh this book sounds TOTALLY up my alley! Nerdy girl cracking codes and and falling in love with a FBI agent? It’s like me and my Mulder crush circa the 90’s! Except I cracked no codes and wrote X-Files fan fic so there’s that.
