Student Saturday: Shantorian – Patrick Carman

Publisher:  Scholastic
Pages:  176
Genre:  Science Fiction
Part of the Trackers Series

In the 21st century landscape of bits and bytes, everyone leaves a digital footprint…even the most advanced cyber criminals. And that’s where the Trackers come in.  Four texh-savvy kids armed with high-tech video cameras and esoteric coding skills, the Trackers can find almost anyone, anywhere. Told through a collage of videos, text and websites, Trackers follows Adam, Finn, Lewis, and Emily as they become entangled in a high-tech, high stakes game of cat and mouse with Shantorian, the world’s most dangerous hacker.  At least, that’s who they think they’re tracking…

AS the four did deeper into the shadow world of online crime, they soon learn that things aren’t always as they seem.

Student Review:
This book  is set in a classified security clearance base of the interrogation room.  It is about how a group of kids – Emily, Luis, Adam and Finn all discover new adventures through each of their individual talents.  Each kid is more nerdy than you can imagine.  But, this time they get caught.  Throughout the book all four kids are getting interrogated.  Why?  Well you will have to read the book and find out!  It is an interesting story actually.  If you read it you will love it.  There are some main characters.

Adam is probably the most committed person out of the four kids. 
Emily is apparently a beautiful young woman, but don’t let looks fool you because she is actually a really smart girl.  She can be a little on the geeky side.
Luis, don’t get me started on the type of personality he has.  Let’s just say he gets VERY shy, and then he begins to panic.  He also thinks much too far ahead of what will happen and what situation will the even lead to.  He makes most situations seem crazy.
Finn is more cool and mellow.  But, he manages to keep up with the nerdy stuff, that Emily Luis, and Adam go around doing.
Henderson is the man that got the poor kids in this mess!  He is the guy that needs to know “all” the information. 

In my opinion I think this was a good book.  In a way it teaches you a lesson.  I think it teaches you a lesson, because through all the book the kids are accused of doing something wrong, but they don’t know it.

My recommendation is yes, yes I think you should read this book.  It is a good book.  The book is fun and adventurous because of the characters, and what they do.  This book reminded me of the quote, “When in doubt, don’t do it!”
