Thank you Readgig for my copy!Can her life get any worse? Jess returns from a nightmare day at school to find her dad's suspended from work and gone into hiding.

Modern technology's forbidden, and there's only a bunch of teenage uber geeks for company. Without Facebook or even her mobile, Jess feels totally disconnected from everybody back home.

3.5 Stars.Firewallers is an enjoyable young adult read. It was quite light and easy to read, written in a way that was humorous and reminiscent for us older readers but relate-able for the readers it is aimed at.I really liked the idea of running away to a remote Scottish island where no technology was allowed and thought it worked well with the storyline.I did find some of the storyline and characters lacked a bit of depth and felt the final part of the book was slightly rushed.I'm glad I was g [...]

An unexpectedly good read.The main character Jess is hilariously sardonic and spits out cutting remarks to all and sundry. However, the real humour is in the way this story picks up on the nuances of 21st century living and pokes fun.Underpinning the hilarity of the situation is a dark story which is surprisingly moving. An ordinary family has been torn apart and we watch how each member copes with the fallout. This book deals with love in its many forms and gives an amusing and smile-inducing v [...]

This is definitely one of those read-in-one-sitting kind of books. I managed to guess about 60% of the twists/reveals before they came but the two I didn't guess made up for the rest because they really packed a punch. Interesting insights into the technology vs. nature debate mixed with a thrilling tale of deception.

I liked this book. Was a good short read story thing. I was not fond of it at first but as I read on it was hilarious as the main character Jess was seperated from her phone and all things technology and expensive brands. Fun book to read

A solid teen read. Some subject matter might perturb some parents but nothing is explicit or gratuitous. Social media at the heart of a tale reminiscent of The Railway Children!

Not grabbing me at the moment so moving on

A book as far out if my comfort zone as Jess was on that island. Not the type of book I would normally choose to read but so glad I did, very enjoyable and thought provoking read.

Different.

I liked it, it was a nice light read. The plot line is engaging, and the characters are easy to connect with. I wonder how I'd cope if I had to live like the people on the island!

Main character rather unlikeable IMHO but an engaging voice and interesting to see how young people are depicted as not handling being separated from their devices etc
