Farrah "Digit" Higgins may be going to MIT in the fall, but this L.A. high school genius has left her geek self behind in another school district so she can blend in with the popular crowd at Santa Monica High and actually enjoy her senior year. But when Farrah, the daughter of a UCLA math professor, unknowingly cracks a terrorist group's number sequence, her laid-back senior year gets a lot more interesting. Soon she is personally investigating the case, on the run from terrorists, and faking her own kidnapping-- all while trying to convince a young, hot FBI agent to take her seriously. So much for blending in . . .

Scraping by in classes, hanging out with his best friend Charlie, and trying to get a date with Lara Hanover, the prettiest girl in school—that was Nick Robbins’ life.
Survival was the last thing on his mind.
Then, a strange cloud appeared over the city. A cloud that kept growing. The darkness on the horizon consumed the light around it. And Nick’s dad, a Department of Defense energy physicist, might have something to do with it. Soon, it became clear that the world Nick knew would never be the same.
Now, night is never-ending. The temperature is falling as heat leaves the world. Plants and animals are dying and people are turning into predators waiting for any small advantage. But Nick is determined not to disappear like the fading light. Desperate to glimpse a familiar face in the shadows, Nick races to find his friends—and the one clue that’s his glimmer of hope.
A Girl Named Digit: The whole 'code-breaking teen on the run from terrorists' reminds me a little of The Industry by Rose Foster, which I loved!! This sounds like it's going to be one awesome thrill ride and did I see mention of a hot, young FBI agent? Um, can June pretty please hurry?!
The Nightworld: A world where night is eternal? Creepy! I've read plenty of dystopians, but none yet where the sun doesn't shine. A life of night will pave the way for some pretty scary stuff, I am so intrigued to see how this story evolves and what exactly this strange cloud is.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
