I greatly enjoyed this novel because it was suspense and teaches the reader a bit about science along the way. I think the character of Maddy Grant would make for a fine television show on the SyFy channel or any other looking for good programming. After a brain implant, Madeline Grant’s intelligence increases exponentially, making her into a female teen MacGyver . She know deduces the truth about almost everything around her, but she comes to the disarming conclusion that the truth may not always set you free and knowing the truth may reduce your appreciation for the world around you.
As a former classroom teacher, I was very excited at the prospect of having this character inspire teens to explore science and I’m really hoping someone out there will see the sense of this. We’ve had Kyle XY after all, so why not a female version?
A recent report indicates that we need to encourage the study of science any way that we can.
