The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise
Publisher: Blazer and Bray
Publication Date: April 30th 2013
Goodreads Summary: In The Boyfriend App by Katie Sise, super-smart, somewhat geeky Audrey McCarthy can’t wait to get out of high school. Her father’s death and the transformation of her one-time BFF, Blake Dawkins, into her worst nightmare have her longing for the new start college will bring.
But college takes money. So Audrey decides she has to win the competition for the best app designed by a high schooler—and the $200,000 that comes with it. She develops something she calls the Boyfriend App, and suddenly she’s the talk of the school and getting kissed by the hottest boys around. But can the Boyfriend App bring Audrey true love?
My thoughts: This was such a fun book to read. Sometimes I didn't understand the computer phrases/words, but that does not keep you from enjoying The Boyfriend App. Audrey is likable character, who smart and even she deals with her unfortunate death of her father. But that makes her strong and gives her motivation to do her best. I love the idea of a "boyfriend app", and if they had a real app, I would totally try it out. Aidan is such a sweet guy, and you can tell that he really cares about Audrey. It did take Audrey a little way to notice that Aidan likes her, but than she did figured it out. There were plenty of other character that I liked, Mindy, Nigit, and Lindsay, who I also enjoyed reading about. They were great side characters who helped Audrey with her plan. I really enjoyed this book, and you should all read it!
