I loved A GIRL NAMED DIGIT. With a tough-as-nails (but totally girlie) heroine, a la early Buffy, a sexy secret agent, and plenty of villains to go around, Annabel Monaghan’s first novel is pretty much unputdownable.

Only her family knows that she’s Digit, long having shed the nickname that made her an outcast at her last school.
