For fans of literary retellings such as The Sisters Red or Cinder, this retelling of Oliver Twist is a fast-paced cyber-punk tale full of romance and danger.
Olivia’s been passed around from foster home to foster home, and she’s no happier with her latest, the Carters. Something’s up with Mr. Carter, and Mrs. Carter won’t let her keep her laptop in the house. But her computer programming class at school is great, she’s made a new friend in the bubbly Sam, and the intriguing fellow hacker Z is keeping her on her toes. When she enters a computer hacking competition and beats everyone, she gets recruited into Z and Sam’s foster home: a front for an illegal hacking operation that makes each of the teens millions. But can Z keep Olivia from getting fully twisted, when he knows she has a pure heart? And can he keep her away from Bill Sykes, the operation’s mastermind, who’s ready to bring Olivia fully into the fold?
