    • Abstract:
      Summary: "It's the near future -- the day after tomorrow -- and the government has shut down online bullying once and for all. With BLINQ, its new social media platform, users can "like" or "share," but they can also "condemn" posts -- and if condemns reach a certain level, users can exact punishment from the original poster in real life. No more anonymous trolling! Instead... hive justice. Seventeen-year-old Cassie McKinney is angry at everything. She's just lost her beloved father, a cult hero in the hacking world. She's been uprooted to a new apartment and -- worse -- a new school. Cassie is barely enduring senior year when she's drawn into a powerful group of girls and their effort to make their posts go viral. Cassie's just trying to be funny when she posts a cutting BLINQ. But when that BLINQ goes viral in all the worst ways, she becomes the target of a furious mob. Abandoned by her friends, betrayed by the system, and bristling at the injustice of it all, Cassie goes on the run. In the shadows, she finds people to help her hide. If she wants to clear her name, though, she will have to work with them to unravel a conspiracy beyond her imagination."-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 June #1

In their first collaboration, Lyga and Baden offer a near-future dystopia, where social media dictates society's behavior, that feels all too real. The eponymous Hive is really the collective term for users on BLINQ, an app officially sanctioned by the U.S. government that has immediate, devastating real-world consequences. When high-school senior Cassie makes a controversial joke about the president's newborn grandchild, the Hive swiftly "condemns" her via what is essentially a "dislike" or "downvote" button. Stakes skyrocket when the president starts a doxing campaign and the government classifies Cassie as an unprecedented Level 6, or #killonsight, and suddenly she is not safe in public. Cassie finds herself among a small but brilliant resistance group with questionable motives themselves. Ultimately, she makes a move that neither the Hive nor readers will see coming. The husband-and-wife writing team capture the horrors of mob mentality in this gripping, tense, action-packed thriller that will appeal to fans of Marie Lu's Warcross (2017) or Gregory Scott Katsoulis' All Rights Reserved (2017). Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2019 July #3

This well-paced collaboration between spouses Lyga (Bang) and Baden, a ghostwriter, takes social media, mob violence, and hacking to extremes, pitting a 17-year-old against a frighteningly believable crowdsourced justice system. After the death of her father, a legendary computer genius, biracial Cassie—a formidable coder—and her professor mother are forced to relocate. At her new school, Cassie tries to ingratiate herself with the queen bees by posting a tasteless joke about the Trump-like president's grandchild. In this near future, the Heuristic Internet Vetting Engine polices internet misbehavior, aggregating Likes, Dislikes, and Condemns to calculate the punishment level, which is meted out by regular people acting as HIVE mobs. When her joke goes viral, resulting in a high Condemn level, Cassie and her mother flee, and after connecting with a hacker group, Cassie gradually discovers a conspiracy with government connections. Offering heart- pounding action while asking difficult questions, this novel is perfect for fans of thought-provoking cyberthrillers. Ages 14–up. (Sept.)
