Tamara’s middle-grade debut!

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.





“[Allie] has to (believably) stumble and fall before she finally begins to gain some needed wisdom and maturity. Entertaining and engaging…” — Kirkus Reviews

“Packed full of middle school drama–best friends, arch enemies, cliques, crushes, and sports–this novel will surely please… Fast-paced and tech savvy, Allie’s adventures may inspire readers to explore coding.” School Library Journal

“Stone has a talent for pacing and this quick-moving story will keep young readers interested until the end. The immersive middle school setting and supportive cast of characters are fun and enjoyable.” — Deseret News

“I’m a sucker for stories about real kids who make mistakes and learn from them. Thumbs way up.” — Jen Naughton, Geek Reads Kids

“An amazing middle grade novel that reminds girls that they can do anything – including take on the tech industry! Written by an author who knows her way around code, Click’d combines a fun and easily relatable story with a great message that young readers will hopefully take to heart.“ — Nerdophiles


“Click’d has taken over my classroom in the most amazing way! A ton of my reluctant readers gave it a shot and finished it in days.” — Michelle Ready, 6th grade teacher

“This book is all heart and passion… There’s angst. There’s laughs. There’s excitement. New friendships are formed. Others are tested. But in the end, it all comes together in a realistic way… I plan to put this on my library shelf.” — Crys, High School Teacher

“Great for techies, an absorbing and App-centred story that isn’t too long for even reluctant readers… I could see myself, a Judy Blume fan at that age (10-13) being caught up in Allie’s world and problems.” — Katy N, Librarian

“We won’t be able to keep it on the shelves.” — Mr. Steve, Youth Services Librarian

“An engaging, girl-power, tech-driven middle-grade novel with fun ‘extras’ which are sure to please its target audience.” — Jenny M, 5th Grade Teacher

“Highly recommended addition to middle school collections, especially because this book is middle grade in character age, treatments of issues, and plot pacing, but doesn’t look or feel like most middle grade books.” — Amy Estersohn, Middle School English Teacher

“Phenomenal! We need more books about girls who code! I can’t wait to show this one off!” — Kelsey M, Librarian

“This quick read has it all for middle school readers, a little romance, drama and conflict… Hand this title to a girls who are beginning to learn coding to understand where they can go with their new found knowledge. — Amanda L, Librarian

“LOVED this book full of coding, strong females, and the power of friendship.” — AL Kelsey, YA Services Librarian (Arapahoe Libraries)

“I absolutely adored this middle school novel… because it deals with friendship, bullying, and all the other drama you see in middle school, but it also teaches resilience and the importance of having the right support network.” — Jeimy G, Educator

“As a middle-school teacher I am always looking for books that will engage my students and I believe Click’d might be the next one. There are so many great themes within its pages: friendship, STEM, girls who code, boys who code, growth mindset, jumping the gun, etc. I will test drive it in my classroom this semester and, hopefully, turn it into a summer reading selection for Summer 2018.” — Margaret, Middle School Teacher

“This book felt so fresh… I could not stop reading. I was totally invested in the story and loved that this book did not take me where I feared it might in the beginning.” — Kathie, Children’s Librarian, The Neverending Stack

“I absolutely loved this book from start to finish. The story is well-written and feels very real and modern. The story moves quickly but never feels rushed. I especially appreciated reading a book about coding that is aimed at girls, but that boys can enjoy too. This is an absolutely essential pick for middle school and upper elementary readers.” — Tara C., Librarian, Kiss the Book

“A delightful story… [and] entertaining introduction to coding that is both accessible and engaging while also providing opportunities to discuss the ethics of some of Allie’s choices.” — Mary M., Children’s & YA Librarian

“I raced through this one! It’s highly entertaining and kids won’t be able to put it down. Moreover, it will be a good conversation starter for kids on digital citizenship topics like privacy.” — Laura Gardner, Middle School Library Teacher

“This was a cute read—perfect for middle graders and late elementary school. I will put this one in my classroom library!” — Teresa Dunivent, Middle School Teacher

“Excellent! Loved the characters. Great plot with coding and games and apps. Not overly technical – any kid can read, follow, and enjoy this book.” — Jaymie, Elementary School Librarian

“Stone clearly knows about coding, and I think kids who are into technology will appreciate that she doesn’t try to dumb it down. At the same time, it’s easy to read and engaging.” — Lucie F, Teen Services Library Associate

“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 plan to give each of my girls a copy of this book. It’s a great lesson in what it means to fail and what it means to not let that failure define you or your work.” — Michelle, Girl Scout Troop Leader

“A lovely story about friendship and coding and making hard choices.” — Debbie T, Librarian

“I loved this book. Young girls coding and working in STEM fields is amazing and we need more books about them.” — Andrea C, Librarian

“There are lessons of integrity and friendship included in the story, but are in no way preachy, and the code-speak is appealing for techies but understandable for even only the end-users. I will definitely be buying this one for my middle school library and can’t wait to get it into the hands of my students!” — Kate Olson, K-12 Librarian

“‘Click’d’ isn’t an average middle grade tween book… Finally, I have a book to give to girls who want to grow up to software engineers; a book that just may entice them into the computer lab.” — Becky, Librarian
