Genius Squad - Catherine Jinks
Listened to this book as well, and loved the Aussie accent, of course. Strengths: Compelling storyline, could read as a stand-alone even though it is a sequel, high-tech excitement. Weaknesses: adult characters didn't seem terribly realistic on either side (good or bad), addressing of the cerebral palsy of one of the main characters is weak. Recommended for fans of suspense and action stories like Artemis Fowl, Alex Rider and the like.
