The story was fresh in some areas, but a little hurried or done in others. The main idea is really interesting and unique, and that's why I think many got excited by this book. The Boyfriend App is a strange story, and one might well accuse it of multiple personalities. Now, her main mission is to push through and get high school over with so she can just move on from all of it. I appreciated the view from a different culture and not having it be a stereotypical family set up. But then I realized there was an update, and a lot more made sense.
However, all these faults pale in comparison with the fact that book shines a positive light on rape. The idea that she settles on is to create a matching making app. Get the app: get the guy. While I am a geek girl, I honestly did find it rather disruptive. I do not code at all. Her app is a success. Isn't it just total genius?! For a long time Mon D Rea has taught English as a foreign language, but his one true love has always been writing stories.
With a simple touch of the screen, romance blooms among the unlikeliest couples at school, and people start to take notice. And I'm not even sure if that's the correct word but I literally, am in no mood to correct typos or think before typing today. Audrey creates an app that makes the target fall in love with the user. However, I did get an Apple vs Android Google vibe from the read that I wasn't expecting. So how does that work for the gay couple seen using it? A fantastic friend, super cute love interest, and great character to want and love. Audrey is counting the minutes until high school is over and she can get the hell out o Get the app.
The sense of friendship and family also added a lot to the story and makes the reader feel more connected to the characters. What she witnesses is so much worse: a hit-and-run using his car. An app competition that may or may not work out. So when the school announces a contest of creating apps, Audrey couldn't help but join. And there were a few things that were confusing that kind of threw me off course not on the predictability, but I had to figure out the timeline or consistency. She uses this as a way to connect to her father who died when she was a freshman because of an incident at work. It doesn't have to be real.
While the tech speak could be a little overwhelming for some readers, for me, it was perfect. Suddenly the Boyfriend App lands Audrey where she never expected to be: in the middle of the limelight, passionately kissed by the hottest guys in school, causing complete and utter mayhem. I feel so brilliant when I understand those conversations, and that was a fun aspect of The Boyfriend App. Then all of the sudden it hits her, she should create a boyfriend app. I happen to be one myself; not a computer geek but you know a geek never the less.

Third, I was disoriented by The Boyfriend App because, going into it, I assumed it was supposed to be a realistic contemporary novel.
So she at least made a stab at making her techno babble sound realistic. It is filled with adorable romance, fun characters, and lots of drama! Anyway, back to Audrey's little group. I wasn't going to read this book. Audrey McCarthy is your typical teen programmer - shy, introverted, and brilliant. There's this one scene in the cafeteria that just killed me, thus why I'm now a zombie. This is slightly stalkerish, in my opinion, but both parties signed up for the app knowing how it works, so power to them.

And with a cover like that? There are a few instances where timing and descriptions don't really make sense which makes me think that this book could use another run through with an editor. Spunky outcast Audrey was easy to like, and as details came to light about how she went from popular best friend of queen bee Blake to geek squad girl, I was in her corner entirely.
But it's not quite enough. Part teen drama, part entertaining ingenuity, and part heart, The Boyfriend App kept me playing! Still, she has her own friends, Nigit, Adrian and Mindy.
