George and Annie must travel further into space than ever before in order to prevent all computers from being hacked.

& Taylor

When banks, stores, airplanes and other computer-dependent organizations and technologies start going haywire all over the world, George and his best friend, Annie, travel farther into space than ever before to discover who or what is behind a grand-scale computer hack. Simultaneous eBook.

Simon and Schuster
George and Annie are off on another cosmic adventure to figure out why strange things are happening on Earth in the fourth book of the George’s Secret Key series from Stephen and Lucy Hawking.

George and his best friend Annie haven’t had any space adventures for a while and they’re missing the excitement. But not for long, because seriously strange things have started happening.

Banks are handing out free money, supermarkets aren’t able to charge for their produce so people are getting free food, and aircrafts are refusing to fly. It looks like the world’s biggest and best computers have all been hacked. And no one knows why…

It’s up to George and Annie to travel further into space than ever before in order to find out what—or who—is behind it.

My 8 year old finds it fascinating but it is a slow read for younger readers. I plan to buy the whole set for the family.

I just downloaded three of these "George" books for my nine year old son. He absolutely LOVES them. He listens to many, many of his books via audio since his dyslexia seems to hold him back in terms of the length and complexity of the books he really thirsts after. He finds these books completely engaging--the plot is "awesome" (according to him), and the concepts are ones he wants to understand and learn more about. This series seems to satisfy a niche that is completely missing in books for young people: real science presented in an engaging manner with the perfect mix of fiction and non-fiction.
