A girl named Digit

Farrah "Digit" Higgins may be going to MIT in the fall, but this L.A. high school genius has left her geek self behind in another school district so she can blend in with the popular crowd at Santa Monica High and actually enjoy her senior year. But when Farrah, the daughter of a UCLA math professor, unknowingly cracks a terrorist group's number sequence, her laid-back senior year gets a lot more interesting. Soon she is personally investigating the case, on the run from terrorists, and faking her own kidnapping-- all while trying to convince a young, hot FBI agent to take her seriously. So much for blending in . . .
Ok, where do I start?
This seemed like a good book, but it was ruined with the main character's maturity of a five year old, and all of the eco crap. Obviously the author wrote this just so she could use a major/serious thing as a bombing to point out the problems of polluting. What message was she trying to show here? If you have enough money to have a giant jet, your going to get blown up by some crazy economist hippy?
Not cool. There was also an unrealistic portrayal of teenage girls, which was so sad. She made them act brainless, obviously no one (I hope to god) is that stupid. She also had an obsession (Borderline crazytown) with bumper stickers... And to top it all off? An inappropriate relationship with 17 year old Farrah, and 21 year old FBI agent. SO not cool! Gross!

I give A Girl Named Digit...
One girl sticking her tongue out and pulling on her pigtails with rage!
