"This book is a sci-fi novel where three teenagers become superheroes and take on a sentient computer virus.
The book contains a little romance, some mystery and a lot of science fiction. It takes place in the future where computers are able to do a lot more then they do today. " G Strickland
"This is the first book i have read by F. Barish-Stern and i have to say i will be reading another. I am an avid reader and am constantly looking for new and interesting books to read. I read the description to this book and thought i would give it a try also the cover piqued my interest as it was very unusual/different. The book drew me in on the very first page and since then i couldn't put it down, i was wanting to know what happened next and looked forward to picking up where i left off." Cherelle
"I have not read any of F Barish-Stern books before and I have to say this author has a good imagination. This story will pull in just about anyone who loves to be lost in a good story line.
This is about a family who's life gets turned upside down by various events, from lab experiments being contaminated to sentient life on a computer. It has all the elements, love, adventure, science, family, corruption, you name it." S Hopkins
"This was an interesting story and one that was full of adventure and imagination. I was impressed by the storyline and how it all played out. I found myself engaged in the story from beginning to end, and thought it might be a good book to share with my kids.
I felt the characters were well developed, and belieavable. I think kids would be able to relate to it well. And I felt the word use was good. It was done in a scientific manner, providing deetails that tied in with the story and made it seem more realistic and relevant. " T Smith
