Click’d by Tamara Ireland Stone is an excellent book that tells a great story about friendship. The book is about 12 year old Allie Navarro. Allie loves to code, in fact she even made a app called Click’d at CodeGirls summer camp, and she can’t wait to show her friends. Click’d is an app that matches users based on similar interests and then sends them on a scavenger hunt to find each other based on clues the app gives them. Allie hopes to enter Click’d into a contest called Games for Good and beat her archenemy Nathan by winning.
On the first day of school Allie shows Click’d to her best friends Maddie, Emma and Zoe and they love it! At first Allie is determined not to release Click’d to the public until the competition, just to be safe. But her friends convince her that everything will be fine. Instantly Click’d is a huge success and Allie loves all the fame she is getting from her classmates. But soon Allie discovers a glitch that could destroy her chances of winning the competition and even worse, could expose users’ secrets. In order to make things right Allie must share the computer lab with Nathan. Allie must fix her game in time for her competition even if it means working with Nathan to make it onstage to present Click’d to the judges and hopefully win. Click’d is a great book because it tells the story of friendship, gaining new ones and fixing old ones. On top of that Click’d has a good sense of humor and makes you want to never stop!
