Summary: (from goodreads) 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?

I really loved this book from the beginning to the very end. The book was so true based on today's life with smart phones, computers and Apps. I would have loved to have an app like that for my cell phone when I was in school. It would have helped me find a boyfriend for once and not meet a loser like I always did. Maybe I would have been matched with my high school crush.

Audrey the main character of the story is a super smart geeky girl who just recently had her father pass away and her mother is working at the school as a lunch lady. Well Audrey is having a hard time with being picked on because of her mother working at the school and about her father dying. She use to be best friends with a girl named Blake but they stopped being friends after Audrey's dad died because he use to work for Blake's father and Audrey's father died while he was working for her dad. Well her dad said it was all Audrey's dads fault and that is why he died. So that is why they aren't friends. Well there is this contest in school that if you design a app for your phone and it becomes a hit then you can win a scholarship to be able to go college because she doesn't have the money to go. Well she designs this app for your phone and has guys and girls sign up for it by answering questions and after answering the questions if you are 100 feet from your crush the phone will go off and then you will know that is your crush. 

The funny thing is that some of the guys are getting hooked up with girls that they would never want to be with. Athletes are getting hooked up with Gothic chicks. Well Audrey wanted to sign up for the app but she was hoping she would get hooked up with her all time crush. But after things started happening at school and she realized who her real friends were. Her guy friend Aidan she started to have a crush on and didn't even realize she even would. She just thought of him as a friend. Well through the whole app designing process she finds out about a certain program that was put into the smart phones that all the kids are carrying around the school. Well it helps with peoples hormones and gets guys and girls going if you point your phone at theirs. Well when Audrey figured it out she pointed it at Xander at school one day and they started making out right in the cafeteria. People couldn't believe that was happening. Throughout the whole book Audrey goes on this roller coaster of a life and every turn she makes it either has a problem or things turn out the way she wants them. When I was reading it I thought it was my life that I was living again. I loved it.

If you would like to feel like you are in high school again then I would read this book. It has all the drama in it that you see in High school. It was cool reading about it because it put my hectic life on hold for a little while and let me live like a high schooler again. I wish I was that age again where I didn't have any responsibilities and could do whatever I wanted.
