Overview

Allie Navarro can't wait to show her best friends the app she built at CodeGirls summer camp. 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?

New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone combines friendship, coding, and lots of popcorn in her fun and empowering middle-grade debut.

Click'd is a great MG story about a girl who writes code and struggles with doing what's right vs winning a competition. It's the kind of story I wish I had when I was younger. Allie loves writing code and she's one of the best in her class. She's always competing with Nathan, another top student who always seems to just barely beat her. Their teacher sponsors them both in an important contest that can get them and their app a lot of publicity. The problem? Allie gets a little competitive and releases her app to her school the week before the competition. She watches the data as more people join and she's exciting seeing her classmates using the app at school. Everybody loves it! However, one of her friends shows her a bug and she only has days to fix it before the competition. She tries to hide this from her teacher/sponsor and Nathan. She can't let Nathan know there's something wrong with her app and she definitely can't tell her teacher in case she decides to pull Allie from the competition. As her app becomes more popular, the chances of the bug happening increases. Her friends encourage her to disable the app but if she does that, she can't be in the competition. She promises her friend she'll solve it before anybody finds out. Nathan and Allie spend their lunches in the computer lab working on their projects. Neither admits they have a problem. Even though they've known each other a long time, they start opening up the more time they spend together. Eventually they each admit they have a problem in their app. They work together to try to fix both apps before the competition. Allie had to face some tough decisions around her app: does she keep it live knowing it has a bug that sometimes shows personal information, should she ask for help, who should she ask for help, how does she explain what she did to her friend who was hurt by the bug. I didn't expect the ending but I appreciated it. As a coder, I related to Allie's challenges and enjoyed watching her learn from her mistakes. She had to make a lot of decisions throughout the story and accepted that she made mistakes by the end.

All I have to say is it's amazing and I love the ending. Lots of dramatic twists and turns ( which I loved). I honestly thought that Nate wrecked the game, but no. So all in all i loved it.

I recently included Click’d in my post of upcoming Children’s and Middle Grade Reads for Fall. Click’d has been on my radar for a couple of months, and I was thrilled when Disney Book Group sent me an advance reader copy through NetGalley. First, let me say that I loved that the protagonist is a female character who is into coding. I would like to see more female characters written this way, with intelligence and a desire to learn and explore and invent things. Allie was a great character and one I think girls could look up to. She was not only smart, but she was kind and, in the grand tradition of Disney stories, she learns a lesson or two about the importance of friendship and doing the right thing. That’s not to say that this book was cheesy. It wasn’t. Yes, it’s a Disney book but it was very real for middle grade fiction. This book tackles friendships and how they may be strained by a summer long absence as well as the importance of trust between friends. Was it predictable? Sure. But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t good. If you are looking for a new read for your middle schooler or if you have a kiddo in your life who is interested in science, computers, and coding, then pick up Click’d. It’s a good story with a good lesson! Read full review at: KaitsBookshelf.com

Click’d is a such a delightful coming of age story. I’ve never read anything by Tamara Ireland Stone, but that’s definitely going to change. The plot is fast-paced, easy to read, and so much fun. For a middle grade book, I was surprisingly very entertained.. but beyond that, Click’d also has heart. Stone delivers empowering messages that apply not only to children or tweens, but to also to adults like me. That’s what I truly love about this book…that I can walk away with something more than just a few laughs here and there. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I love stories that seem simple, but definitely packs a punch. Being successful does not mean winning, but working through your failures and never giving up. It’s about taking a leap and really believing in yourself to achieve whatever goals you have. I really love the idea of creating Apps and using technology to do some good and make the world a better place. We definitely need more of that right now. Allie and Nathan are such great role models. I absolutely admired them for being creative, passionate, and determined. I don’t have any experience with coding, but it must take a lot of hard work and patience to be able to do what they did. Their commitment and enthusiasm with their projects was absolutely inspiring. I also loved the growing friendship between them and it was so adorable to watch them work together and become great friends. I liked the side characters too. Allie’s friends and everyone seemed genuine and realistic. Overall, I really enjoyed this story – it’s heartwarming, beautifully written, engaging, and inspiring. I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I don't normally read MG, but I love all things Tamara, so it was a sure thing. I loooooved Allie. She's so smart and so determined and has loads more ambition than I think I've ever had. I truly enjoyed her journey. Allie's friends are fun and add a great dynamic. I especially loved Ms. Slade and Allie's parents for being such positive and supportive adults. Plot wise, it was a lot of fun. I'm completely intrigued by the idea of coding and I was blown away at what Allie and Nathan were doing. There was a few bumps and conflicts, but it was quite refreshing to see a different type of drama than what I see in YA. Overall, it was a lot of fun with a story that I'm sure will be important to a lot of kids. I can't wait to get a finished copy. **Huge thanks to Hyperion for providing the arc free of charge**
