9780156031370: PopCo

Alice Butler has been receiving some odd messages - all anonymous, all written in code. Are they from someone at PopCo, the profit-hungry corporation she works for? Or from Alice's long lost father? Or has someone else been on her trail?

The solution, she is sure, will involve the code-breaking skills she learned from her grandparents and the key she's been wearing round her neck since she was ten.

PopCo is a grown-up adventure of family secrets, puzzles, big business and the power of numbers.

Review:

Ambitious, thought-provoking fun. ( Sunday Times)

This book might just change your life. (Suzi Feay Independent on Sunday)

A wonderfully fresh and ambitious novel. (Jonathan Coe Evening Standard)

An outright amazement. ( Scotland on Sunday)

An anticorporate fable with enough code-breaking tips, puzzles and graphs, charts, postscripts and appendixes to satisfy Lewis Carroll. ( New York Times)

Frankly this novel is a bewitching, dizzying triumph. ( Scotsman)

Book Description:

A brilliant mindmelting adventure from the author of The End of Mr. Y

Book Description HARVEST BOOKS, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Us.. 203 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. PopCo tells the story of Alice Butler-a subversively smart girl in our commercial-soaked world who grows from recluse orphan to burgeoning vigilante, buttressed by mystery, codes, math, and the sense her grandparents gave her that she could change the world. Alice-slight introvert, crossword compositor- works at PopCo, a globally successful and slightly sinister toy company. Lured by their CEO to a Thought Camp out on the moors, PopCo s creatives must invent the ultimate product for teenage girls. Meanwhile, Alice receives bizarre, encrypted messages she suspects relate to her grandfather s decoding of a centuries-old manuscript that many-including her long-disappeared father-believe leads to buried treasure. Its key, she s sure, is engraved on the necklace she s been wearing since she was ten. Using the skills she learned from her grandparents and teaching us aspects of cryptanalysis, Alice discovers the source of these creepy codes. Will this lead her to the mysterious treasure or another, even more carefully guarded secret?. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780156031370
