Click’d, a book by Tamara Ireland Stone, is about a game that Allie Navarro made at her CodeGirls camp that helps you make friends. She is really excited to share it with everyone at her school. As Allie works on her game harder than ever, it suddenly makes a huge mistake. Click’d sends out a really embarrassing photo that was never meant to be sent. Allie tries desperately to fix her game, and as she does, there is triumph and sadness, victory and failure. Then more and more embarrassing pictures are sent out, and Allie might have to drop out of Games for Good, a really big competition for coders. Click’d is a book about drama, friendship, accepting failure, and learning from it.
I liked this book because it had some very real-life moments in it, that have even happened to me and my friends. I feel like this book is really good for people who love the drama genre, or who are just looking for an interesting book. Click’d was very well-written, and fun to read.
Take Your Last Breath by Lauren Child
The sequel to Look Into My Eyes, this book was highly anticipated (by me) and I was not disappointed in any way. Following the same characters, Ruby has found herself with yet another mystery to solve, and this time it takes place on the wide-open ocean.
One thing I love about the series is that Ms. Child gives peeks into what’s happening with the villains/culprits such as short conversations or a simple description of their actions which gives you info not even Ruby has. This has always kept me completely intrigued with the story as every time this happens, I feel as if I should be able to figure the mystery out but I still never do 🙁 When the plot twist is finally revealed I go back to all the little details and just question HOW I didn’t manage to figure it out.
Final rating from me is a 10/10 because this series just can do absolutely no wrong. I loved it from start to finish and was hooked from the first sentence. I’ve grown up with Ruby and re-reading the series now has just made me realize how lucky I am to have had her as a role model during my same years of “pre-teen awkwardness”. Highly recommend to any mystery lovers regardless of age or gender as well as someone looking for a book that will get them thinking.
