Data Runner - Sam A. Patel I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley to review.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was full of action and had a realistic rendering of the future. I liked the addition of parkour to the story. It was integrated well and made sense. The sport was explained well for those who were unfamiliar with it. There aren't a lot of YA books about it so that was nice. The philosophy behind parkour was explained well. The sense of community the boys had was relatable. Some of the hacking stuff went over my head, but the gist of what was going on. I felt like that was what was supposed to happen when Martin opened his mouth though. He's very intelligent and his technobabble illustrated that. I loved the world building. The idea that the net became controlled and how that changed communication made sense. The evolution of courier and security systems out of that was very logical. Overall, I thought that the book was a really fun read.
