“A fun, fast-paced thriller guaranteed to distract teens from Facebook ...”—Kirkus Reviews, on Assured Destruction Book #1.

Jan Rose no longer steals data from the old computers she recycles. She doesn't need to. As the newest member of the police department’s High Tech Crime Unit, the laptop of a murderer has landed on her desk. Her job: to profile and expose a killer.

But that’s not all.

A creep lurks in the shadows, stalking a friend, and Jan must stop him before the hunt turns deadly. The clock counts down for Jan to save her friend, her job, her boyfriend—maybe even her life.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is full of action and you find yourself engrossed from the very beginning.  The storyline is well developed and the characters are well written.  Janis has a full plate and you feel yourself cheering her on. As far as this being the second book it the series it is a standalone novel that is better than the first.  You can see the author has grown between books.  Looking forward to reading more from this author.

The beginning of Script Kiddie continues right after book one, Assured Destruction, Jan is given a chance to change and use her talents to help others. In the first few chapters also gives a brief recap of the events in the first book that led up to this second installment of the series. But, trouble seems to follow Jan no matter what she does. Although her heart is in the right place, trouble just seems to follow her. I definitely enjoyed this second book in the series. With the well developed characters and descriptive setting, Michael F. Stewart brought Jan's story to life. And, again, Michael has brought in another intriguing mystery that even Jan is powerless to avoid. Jan's curiosity and compassion to help her friends and family just keeps getting her into trouble. Even with all the mystery and suspense, Jan tries to live a normal teenage life. A definitely fun, thrilling and coming of age book that keep you guessing still.

Janus and crew have new adventures to face in episode 2 of Assured Destruction. In a sense episode 2 is just a continuation of episode 1. However, it could be read as a stand alone story. The narrative is well written with multiple interwoven mysteries and challenges. Characters continue to grow on their own and in their relationships. Overall, a touching read.

Good YA Mystery  Script Kiddie by Michael F. Stewart I found Script Kiddie to be an interesting book. I particularly liked the way Stewart develops our young main character, Janus. I suspect teens could easily identify with her. She was sincere, yet misunderstood. She had tremendous pressure for a young person with a sick mom, an absentee dad and serious financial woes. Her responses to these were refreshingly real. We see her succeed in areas and fail in others. We see her mess up but then see her make efforts to amend. The plot is busy with several mysterys intertwining Janus' life. This keeps the book fast paced. All were related to computers as Janus was a tech geek - a script kiddie to be exact. I was concerned it would be filled with lengthy technical jargon but found it to read easily and enjoyed some insight into this world. I would recommend this book to teenagers and older. I received this e-book in exchange for an honest review.
