I love the book Digit: She’s Got your Number, by Annabel Monaghan. Digit (the main character) is my favorite character. She’s awesome. She is a teenager and she has the code to help the police crack a criminal case. Who wouldn’t want to be her? This book is awesome on soo many levels. I can’t even explain it.

is that the summer will bring art, imagination, music and a big surprise.
This is a wonderful – and emotional! – book.
