My name is Angel Sinclair. I’m the youngest senior at Excalibur Academy for the Technologically Gifted and Talented in Washington, DC. I was pushed ahead a year because of my high IQ and considerable prowess behind the keyboard, making me an outcast even among my own peers. I’ve been looking for my dad all my life. A brilliant mathematician and cryptographer, he disappeared under mysterious circumstances when I was eighteen months old. Although my mom tells me I must put him in my past, it only makes me more determined to find out what happened to him. When weird accidents start happening at my school and the vice principal is involved in a deadly incident, I don’t see it as a coincidence. After launching my own investigation, with the aid of an unexpected set of allies calling themselves the White Knights, I discover a threat far greater than I ever could have imagined. I could take my discoveries to the authorities, but my own investigative methods would be at risk. Can anyone say hacking? No, it’s up to me to set things right. My objectives are straightforward: clear the name of the vice principal, learn the truth about my father, and stay alive. In other words, save the day and try not to look too much like a dork while doing it.
If you enjoy spy and mystery adventures, you will like the White Knights series by Julie Moffett, YA/NA Mystery and Mayhem Award-winning author and writer of the popular geeky Lexi Carmichael mystery series. Try out Julie's fun, young adult series today!
Angel is usually alone and prefers to handle things on her own, but she's going to need help to solve this case. She must rely on her new friend Frankie and her nemesis Wally. Together, they must put aside their difference and band a strange friendship in order to help Mr. Matthews.
I really like the personalities in this story. Wally is comical and Angel is an introvert. It was entertaining to see them interact with each other. I like the geek-girl/hacking concept and think it brings a fresh concept to YA books.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of humor, nerdiness, spies, secrets, and hacking. This was an interesting start to the series.

"As a child, I love mystery books; Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, the Five Find-Outers by Enid Blyton and etc. So now, even when I've grown up, mystery books has been a soft spot for me.
