This was an enjoyable, fast paced book. Malorie has a particular style, which is engaging for children and allows them to relate to the characters. The main character is a strong, female protagonist who is fiercely protective of her family and will go to great lengths to help them - despite her family circumstances to being that of the average family...

I like this book because, it shows us that you should never believe every thing that you believe and everything that you hear and it tells us to never give up

This book was great because it was mysterious and I enjoy mystery. There are 2 main characters Victoria and Gib. Victoria is Gibs step sister because his parents adopted her. The main plot is trying to find out if their dad stole money. I would recommend this book to 7+ and anyone who enjoys mysterious stories.

It wasn’t my type of book and the start was a bit boring

I have read the Hacker book by Malorie Blackman most recently. This book is amazing and very interesting. It tells about a girl called Vicky and the math teacher Miss Bracken supervised everyone at the test. Vicky got suspended from school for cheating at the maths test and that is where the excitement begins... The book feels be fictional but it could also happen in real life. I would recommend it to any of my friends because the story is really exciting.

I didn’t really like it and found it quite boring

05 Dec 2020

This book was exceptional. I started to read and like Ottoline at sea, I couldn't stop reading it! Eve though it is 15 chapters long, it was a pleasure to read. I would recommend it to 7+ because for 7-, the book won't make sense, and it wouldn't be very funny.

07 Sep 2020

a decent book.

02 Sep 2020

I would recommend this book to someone who loves computing.
My favourite character was Vicky because she lets her brother help her even though he is really mean to her sometimes.

Vicky tries to prove that her dad didn't not steal the bank money but she finds it very hard to give the evidence to prove his innocence.

08 Aug 2020

It was a really good mystery book. I predicted the ending that she would have saved her dad.

29 Jul 2020

This was an exciting read.

26 Jul 2020

I thought it was a great book very interesting and there was a lot of drama in it. The person that interested me the mist was Victoria because she had a whole story behind her to make her the person that she is. Yes I would recommend it to someone else because it is very mysterious and it makes you want to read more and more.

I found this book very good.
This book was a fiction book and was about a girl called Victoria who had to hack into the bank system where her dad worked to save his name as he was accused for stealing over 1 million pounds from the systems.
She eventually found out that her aunt and uncle had taken the money for a holiday and some extremely expensive earrings.
My favourite person was Victoria as she saved her dad from going to prison.
I would recommend this book to my good friend as he likes coding and adventure stories very much.
