Book Summary:

You can learn a lot about someone looking through their hard drive...

Sixteen-year-old Jan Rose knows that nothing is ever truly deleted. At least, not from the hard drives she scours to create the online identities she calls the Shadownet.

Hobby? Art form? Sad, pathetic plea to garner friendship, even virtually? Sure, Jan is guilty on all counts. Maybe she’s even addicted to it. It’s an exploration. Everyone has something to hide. The Shadownet’s hard drives are Jan’s secrets. They're stolen from her family’s computer recycling business Assured Destruction. If the police found out, Jan’s family would lose its livelihood. 

When the real people behind Shadownet’s hard drives endure vicious cyber attacks, Jan realizes she is responsible. She doesn’t know who is targeting these people or why but as her life collapses Jan must use all her tech savvy to bring the perpetrators to justice before she becomes the next victim.

My Review:

***I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

We are all guilty of doing things we're not supposed to do. Janus Rose, a computer genius knows that but doesn't know how and when to stop..why would she? if you we're given a chance to uncover anyone's secret and know him/her intimately through his/her hard drive..would you grab it? Well, Janus did..and that's when the fun and chaos started.

Janus, our girl is a kick-ass computer whiz, she's powerful with just a laptop and an internet connection. I totally want to be her :P she's a cool kid with great ideas, I loved how independent she is, she can totally solve her own problems and she's not a drama queen unlike most of the girls of her age.

I absolutely enjoyed reading Assured Destruction. It made me realize on a deeper level how the internet.. can be use as a weapon to destroy someone else life. How a small joke or a picture can be so destructing. All in All Assured Destruction is a book worth reading and recommending :)
