Readers will love this story. The plot changes rapidly and leaves no chance of the reader becoming bored.

Everyone wants a new computer, but at what cost. After getting a new laptop, along with several others, everyone realizes that the computers are equipped with ticking time bombs. What will they do?

The battle to save themselves and everyone else begins. The adventure begins early and doesn't end until the last sentence.

This story provides a great opportunity to teach the idea that everything has a price and sometimes it isn't worth the cost. Readers could reflect on things that have happened in their lives and write a journal entry about something they wanted really bad, but they didn't want to pay the necessary price. ( )

Each member of the Recon Academy has been sold a fantastic new laptop but soon they discover they are ticking bombs. At the same time the Navy is launching a secret spy satellite nearby and the team has been too busy to provide any security but now they rush to save themselves and the satellite from the Shadow Cell. This book features on the lone female in the four member group, Emmi, whose special skill is martial arts. Very intricate, exciting story with an involved plot which is suitable for the publisher's recommended ages 8-13. The artwork is well done and reminiscent of what one finds in cartoon shows of this nature. The book is much harder to read than the 1.7 RL would have you believe with such phrases as "they're only prototypes", "time to decrypt their code" and "heat detection monitor". With my son's reading level we had to do shared reading, with me reading the harder words but the story was definitely a hit with him. He wants to read all four books. Fortunately we have one more at home, then we'll be off to the library!
