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 u

What a disappointment from the author of Every Last Word.

Allie loves computers. She spent her summers at an all-girl coding camp and now she’s eager to enter her newest invention—Click’d—in a competition.

But she hasn’t figured out everything about Click’d. She needs to work hard on the glitches that seem to be causing so much problem. Maybe it’ll be ready on time… if she works with her nemesis.

It’s all about the app. I guess I should have seen it coming, given the title, but I just did not expec

I was honestly surprised to receive an ARC of this because Disney-Hyperion never approves me for anything.

But they did, so I was like, "Bleep yeah! Girl coders!" I took a coding class in high school. It was one of the most difficult classes I've ever taken, but it was also one of the most satisfying. Every time I figured out the code to make a program work, I felt so good. It was the ultimate mental rush, like forcing checkmate in a dif

At times, CodeGirls Camp could be an emotional roller coaster mixed with triumphant highs and intense lows.

Allie spend her summer in CodeGirls Camp developing an app supposed to connect people and helping them to make new friend. She named it Click’d as the users would answer a bunch of questions about their tastes and then be matched to 10 persons based on the way they answered those questions. Click’d qualified Allie for an app youth competition called "Games for Good", which she

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. T

CLICK'D is a delightful new middle grade novel about friendship, chasing your dreams, and following your heart.

The story is so much fun to read. I love the concept of empowering kids to use their coding skills to create incredible apps that help improve the world. This book really celebrates the fact that our youth not only cares about the issues facing the world they live in, but they also take action to improve it.

CLICK'D was a quick and refreshing read that I would recommend to readers of a
Thank you, Tamara Ireland Stone for creating an age-perfect read for middle grade kids that:
1) Includes a topic they can completely relate to, as opposed to “read this instead of playing that”
2) Shows them that it is possible to take a dream and make it a reality
3) Is written for and geared to younger readers with no “possibly inappropriate” scenes

CLICK’D is a tale of accomplishment, responsibility, insecurity and coming of age that is wrapped up in a charming tale filled with imagination and th

Fast-paced and timely middle school story with a great technology premise.

Thanks to Disney Hyperion for the advance review copy of this title - all opinions are my own.

CLICK'D tells the story of a middle school coding superstar who develops an app at a summer coding camp and is surprised to have it become a smash hit when she debuts it at her school. Allie is a very relatable middle school character and this is written perfectly for the upper middle school crowd who live with their phones. T

I received an ARC ebook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 shining stars.

My experience in software made me curious about CLICK'D. Thing is, I've read a bunch of novels where the technical aspects and the programming fall into the magical-coding category. This is a tricky topic to write about--too much detail becomes tedious, while not enough detail is confusing or cheesy. I'm glad to say CLICK'D managed to be realistic without inundating us with geeky details. Very well h

I'm honestly at a loss with this book. Tamara Ireland Stone knocked my socks off with "Every Last Word," a book that dealt with mental illness, suicide, and grief with such delicacy and heart so yeah the bar was high but I had no doubt Stone could meet it then zoom past it to new heights.

Sadly that hasn't happened with "Click'd" a very odd YA book that seems to have been intended for middleschoolers given the age of its characters but then makes the odd decision to have them all talk like 35 yea

Click’d is a gripping middle grade book, focusing on friendship, success, hard work, responsibility and family ties. From the very beginning the reader is introduced to this whole other world: the world of coding. For me personally that was a totally foreign concept and gett

Twelve year old Allie Navarro has just returned to Mercer Middle School after spending the summer at Code Girls, creating useful applications to download. Allie has created a game called Click'd, the application matching teens with similar interests to potentially find new friends, awarding Allie with a place within the prestigious Games for Good competition.

I wish I had friends like these kids in middle school. So smart. Love that they want to help others and are writing computer code. Also love the geek gamer conference and the lesson learned there.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

What I liked: Tamara Ireland Stone writes beautifully. Her book, EVERY LAST WORD is one of my favorites of all time. So I was thrilled to receive a copy of her middle grade debut. The book is fast paced, engaging and heart-warming. Tamara manages to combine the angst and insecurities of middle school with hope. The characters in this book are engaging and relatable.

Click'd is a ridiculously sweet story. It follows a preteen girl who created her own app to help people find friends in close physical proximity. When a glitch in her system causes some hurt feelings and she tries to make it better, things only snowball.

I loved the friendships Allie had. They felt true to life in a way that many other novels don't--often they feel too pretty or too dramatic. Either there is no conflict at all between friends or the conflict is seemingly insurmountable. When All

Click'd was an interesting middle grade novel about coding and friendship. Allie makes several bad decisions, but redeems herself in the end. Her interactions with her classmates felt sincere, and I was glad that the author allowed her to learn from her mistakes without reward. I have read other books by Tamara Ireland Stone that I liked better, but it was a fun quick read. (3.5 stars)
3.75/5 stars

It's a good middle grade book. :) I found it kind of boring at first but it turned out to be quite nice afterwards.

This was a cute tale, which combined fun, friendship, and those mistakes that one is bound to make when growing up.

Allie was so proud of the app she created during her summer with the CodeGirls, and was excited to share it with her three best friends in the week leading up to the Games for Good competition. She sort of got caught up in the zeal surrounding her app, that when some issues arose with the code, she decides to NOT seek the advice of her mentor and to take care of it herself, and soo

Thank you to NetGalley for an advanced reader copy of this book - all opinions are my own.

This is the first book I've read with coding as a main theme, and I was so impressed for several reasons. First, this book felt so fresh, as coding is timely topic, but there hasn't been a lot written about it in middle grade fiction with female protagonists. Second, the characters in this book are real, using language and acting the way young teen girls do, and it felt very much at its audience's level. Th

The author described this book in three words: coding, friends, failure.

We don't talk enough about failure with kids. Failure is important. Failure is how we learn and grow.

I have a Girl Scout troop of Cadettes (middle school age) and they all plan to work toward their Silver Awards - an award that requires a large project that attempts to solve a problem in the community. I want my girls to expect to fail at their projects. If they're prepared to fail, they'll be more likely to pick themselves

Instead of soccer camp, Allie Navarro went to coding camp, where she built an app called click’d. Click’d is a social app where you answer quiz questions and then receive a leaderboard with those who answered the questions the same way. The people on your leaderboard remain a mystery until your phone is near somebody on your leaderboard, and then that person is revealed through hints from their instagram feeds, kind of like a mashup of geocaching and OKCupid.

I think the book is aimed at a slightly older girl than my daughter. The "Monday" section wasn't bad, but she didn't like how bad things got by early Wednesday. She was so upset, we decided to stop reading it.

Allie has an amazing time in the CodeGirls Summer camp and is really excited about the app she has created, Click'd. It is designed to help kids make friends by having them answer a questionnaire and matches them accordingly. Then, when their phone is near the other person's phone, there are a series of prompts that connect the two. Allie decides to launch it during the first week of school, right before her dedicated coding teacher, Ms. Slade, has entered her i
Based off the premise alone, this book was very close to home for me, so from day one, I knew I had to read it and that I would be pretty critical of it, especially in terms of accuracy. Despite that, Click'd ended up both surprising and impressing me. I didn't know that Stone had it in her, but I respected her other novels and now I respect this one.

Click'd is about a promising young female coder who has to go through the growing pains of the development cycle, from the crushing lows of not kno

“Ms. Navarro,” Mr. Mohr said, and Allie stopped and turned to look at him. “Can I ask you one more thing?”


“Why didn’t you just shut your game down when you first realized something was wrong?”

It was a good question. She started to give him all the reasons she’d been telling herself all week. That people were having fun. That she needed big numbers for Saturday. That she needed good stories to prove that Click’d was doing good in the world. But as all those answers passed through in her mind, she knew that none of them had anything to do with the real reason she didn’t shut it down.

She locked her eyes on Mr. Mohr and told him the truth. “Everyone knew who I was.”
