These are the last words uttered by 17-year-old Max Stein’s best friend Evan just moments before he kills himself after hacking into the live-streaming Presidential debate at their high school.

Haunted by the unforgettable image of Evan’s death, Max’s entire world is upended as he suddenly finds himself the target of a corporate-government witch-hunt. Fearing for his life and fighting for his own innocence, Max goes on the run with no one to trust and too many unanswered questions.

Max must dust off his own hacking skills and maneuver through the dangerous labyrinth of underground hacktivist networks, ever-shifting alliances and virtual identities – all the while hoping to find the truth behind the “Silence of Six” before it’s too late.

“The Silence of Six” is an exciting page turner that begs you not to put it down until you know how it all will end.  Built around the world of computer hacking, compromised security, and government overstepping its bounds, in this day and age it could almost be described as a horror story.  I know it has left me a bit on the paranoid side. The characters are well-developed, the plot picks up its quick pace from the very beginning, and the plot is unpredictable, which is exactly how any good thriller should be.  The hacker world is also rather extensively explored, which can be both a good and a bad thing.  For those with computer knowledge, it adds to the fun.  For those who are able to gloss over details they do not understand and go with the flow, it does not take away from the excitement.  However, for those who can get lost in details, it may be overwhelming.  It is for that reason that I would not recommend “The Silence of Six” for reluctant school-aged readers. However, should you fit one of the first two categories listed above and enjoy cyber thrillers, “The Silence of Six” is one fun and exciting read that is not to be missed. This review is based upon a complimentary copy provided the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

An intense thriller of teen hackers on a mission to save the world as we know it. Max and his merry band of "hacktivists" need to clear the name of their friend and show everyone the evils one corporation is inflicting on a global level. The Silence of Six is full of tech-speak, but fear not: everything is explained well and concisely. There is never a dull moment in this story, which is full of chases, cyber spying, espionage, and excellent writing. The plot is well-developed with a few twists and the characters are richly drawn- none more so than Evan, who we only come to know through Max's memories. I've never read anything by E. C. Myers before The Silence of Six, but if anything else is as good as this, I'll be clamoring to get my hands on it, too

I just finished this book and thought it was a rather good interesting read, however I thought the writing was a little bit immature for me. I would not say it was a page turner but I was interested in the plot enough to keep going. most of the things that happen in the book are very unrealistic for a teenager to go through and I found all the computer talk a little confusing at times. I gave this 3 stars for the interesting plot. the ending was a little bit cheesy and I was left with a lot of questions.
