Reading Hacker made me think about just how few books featuring protagonists of colour I read that have a contemporary UK setting (rather than US). Which is something I should correct as though the UK has a paucity of diverse kids/YA authors there are some great books out there. Malorie Blackman is deservedly popular, being the ex-Children’s Laureate and author of the YA classic Noughts and Crosses. Hacker is pitched  younger, perfect for upper middle grade or Year 6/7 in UK schools and is a fast-paced thriller great for computer geeks and twisty enough to satisfy demanding readers. 10+
