Hacker by Alex Kropp


Hacker by Alex Kropp

Computer crime hits the High School, and the prime suspect is a...teacher! Hacker and Cole, computer whizz and football star, have to find out who's behind the mess...that's before the football team breaks them in two...Books aren't your thing? Don't worry. You just haven't read the right ones yet. These books are 'page-turners'. Whether they are funny or exciting, or emotional, they are all about believable people. This isn't Hogwarts, it's the real world. They are designed, first and foremost, to be really enjoyable - great stories that will have you hooked from the first page and won't let up - or let you down - until you've finished. Basically, they don't muck about: they start off gripping, and keep up with the action until the very last page. The books have everything from trappings, snow disasters, Arctic strandings, bullies, mystical horses, hackers, missing kids, juvenile prison, death-defying crashes, ghosts, divorce, hold-ups, death and honour, street gangs, drugs, intense sport...you name it. So whatever your 'flava', we have something to tickle your fancy. Pick one up and enjoy the ride...


The story is action-packed and investigates the very real crime area of computer fraud. Resource Links, v.11 (2), December 2005: Canada.
