“WHAT IS THE SILENCE OF SIX, AND WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?”
These are the last words uttered by 17-year-old Max Stein’s best friend Evan just moments before he kills himself after hacking into the live-streaming Presidential debate at their high school.
Haunted by the unforgettable image of Evan’s death, Max’s entire world is upended as he suddenly finds himself the target of a corporate-government witch-hunt. Fearing for his life and fighting for his own innocence, Max goes on the run with no one to trust and too many unanswered questions.
Max must dust off his own hacking skills and maneuver through the dangerous labyrinth of underground hacktivist networks, ever-shifting alliances and virtual identities – all the while hoping to find the truth behind the “Silence of Six” before it’s too late.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This was one of the first hacker novels I read. It was not disappointing at all. I loved this book and recommended it to everyone who asks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for fans of Cory Doctorow Whoa. Well that was a hell of a fun ride. I miss reading books like these that are heavy in the hacking world. It was like a cross between Little Brother by Cory Doctorow and Person of Interest, both of which I highly enjoy. This book is smart and while I didn't understand all of the hacker jargon, I understood some of it and some of it was explained. However, because of the nature of these kinds of books that need quite a bit of explaining to get the point across, there was a lot of dialogue on how the characters would pull this off or there was explaining of how this certain hacking thing is done in the narration. It gets a bit much at times, but I also like that it isn't dumbing anything down for the reader. I am a huge fan of mysteries and thrillers, especially those that go through the process of how it all happens. And with this one, I really love the mystery and going on the journey with the characters to "save the world." This story actually scared me more than any horror novel, because of how real the possibility something like this would happen. I thought the characters were quite interesting, especially Penny and Risse. They make some hard choices later in the book and it's commendable of them for being decisive enough to make it. This book was a really fun read, especially if you love Cory Doctorow books and such.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love! Noa wakes up in a facility with a big long scar on her chest and once she realizes she’s being held prisoner in the city of Boston she escapes her tormentors. Running into fellow teenager and hacker Peter, they uncover a conspiracy so great that even help from the FBI is useless. Noa’s character is fiercely sharp and intelligent, and I can honestly say I love her character. She’s a survivor who took matters in her own hands and started to teach herself how to hack into systems so she can survive on her own. Noa isn’t as hard and as cold as she seems, because you are privy to her vulnerable more sensitive side in bits and pieces. Then there’s Peter who grew up in an affluent neighbourhood and gas had every advantage yet he his parents ignore him and basically abandon him. I kinda hated his father a lot. The things he said just made me incredibly mad. It was a large contrast seeing these two young lives, both broken in their own way. Both trying to make sense of how wrong society has influenced them. Don’t Turn Around is written in dual perspectives and I’ve always loved different point of views because it adds so much more dimension to the storyline. So fast-paced, I couldn’t stop reading. And there were just so many questions I needed to answer that my mind itself was racing to figure it all out. This book is for any techy geek or anyone interested in a mystery or even conspiracy. There’s a little bit ofhacking terminology like bricking which was a very interesting theory and most likely a realistic one. I loved this one and almost gobbled it up. I thought this was a standalone but I was happy to find out there were going to be more books after I finished reading the last page. This one is going into my favourites pile and one I would read over again to find out if I missed any clues of foreshadowing. Characters Great strong characters. Pacing/Length So fast I was flipping through the pages. Cover/Design Pretty interesting, but it could do a makeover to patch the actual plot. Plot Love love love! Overall, one of my favourites of the year and can’t wait for the next one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book provided by author what can I say. I received it in the post today after winning it in a competition. I couldn't put it down. brilliant story. it was fast paced, action packed, full of suspense. I never knew what was going to happen next. I loved noa's character. that's one tough cookie lol I know I would have been hysterical if I woke up on a metal bed in a strange place. It was one of those books that keeps you guessing and turning the page. The story line was really interesting. I'm not sure if there's anything else like it out there. makes a nice change to read something new. It was brilliant....can't WAIT for book 2.......there is going to be a book 2.......isn't there........ loved it :D
