Evil Genius – Catherine Jinks

At age seven, child prodigy Cadel Piggott lands in a shrink’s office for illegal computer hacking, where psychologist Thaddeus Roth delivers startling counsel: “Next time, don’t get caught.” Thaddeus is an agent of Cadel’s real father, a brilliant crook who, from behind bars, manages to place Cadel at the secretive Axis Institute for World Domination. By 13, Cadel is earnestly studying “Infiltration, Misinformation, and Embezzlement,” but as he increasingly relies on an outside friendship, he privately plots to extricate himself from his father’s plans for his future.

This book was a difficult read for me.  Though the idea was really interesting (haven’t you ever thought of ruling the world?), there was too much computer jargon and mathematics for me.  If you like technology a lot, you should find the details in this book interesting, but if you are looking for a quick easy read, you might want to move on to another book. – Jessica, Teen Librarian
