Disney-Hyperion sent me a copy to check out, and is partnering with me for a giveaway!
What a fun book for all techy, geeky, nerdy kids and teens! Heck, I even loved this book. And you have a chance to win a Click’d prize pack at the end of this post.
New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone wrote Click’d and your kids will love it! It combines friendship, coding, and lots of popcorn in her fun and empowering middle-grade debut.
What Is Click’d About?
Allie Navarro is the main character. She can’t wait to show her best friends the app she built at CodeGirls summer camp. Her app, Click’d, pairs users based on common interests and sends them on a fun (and occasionally rule-breaking) scavenger hunt to find each other. And it’s a hit. By the second day of school, everyone is talking about Click’d.
Watching her app go viral is amazing. Leaderboards are filling up! Everyone’s making new friends. And with all the data Allie is collecting, she has an even better shot at beating her archenemy, Nathan, at the upcoming youth coding competition. But when Allie discovers a glitch that threatens to expose everyone’s secrets, she has to figure out how to make things right, even if that means sharing the computer lab with Nathan. Can Allie fix her app, stop it from doing any more damage, and win back the friends it hurt—all before she steps on stage to present Click’d to the judges?
This Book is Perfect for Kids & Teens
Allie is such a wonderful heroin, perfect for young girls to look up to. She is strong, but vulnerable, and uses her brain to get through her messy situation.
Even better, it encourages girls to go into STEM studies and coding. It comes with Code.org activities that match the book!
There is a reason Tamara Ireland Stone is a New York Times best selling author. She’s a fantastic writer who keeps you turning pages. Her
