Allie Navarro can’t wait to go to “Code Girl Summer Camp,” a special camp for coding to which she won a spot after making and submitting a cool sample app.
At the beginning of camp, Allie struggles making friends with the other campers, so an amazing idea forms in her head, CLICK’D. She develops an amazing app that basically helps people make friends by linking people they have in common. Allie continues to work on the app even after camp is over and school starts back up again. Back at school, everyone is talking about her app, the game totally takes off, and more and more people connect through it and become friends! But then she discovers the GLITCH! The app starts going crazy and pulls personal, secret photos and messages! Fights start breaking out, and Allie needs to find a way to fix the app before everything breaks apart!
I liked Click’d a lot because I’m into coding, and I thought the app she made was cool and I would use it myself. I would suggest this book for kids who like coding and books about friendship and for middle-schoolers ten years and up!
