Sixteen-year-old Keilah Evans is completely undateable. The crush she has on Gage Fitch? Forget it. He has no idea she exists. But Keilah has something other girls at school don’t: She can code. Keilah decides to solve her dating woes by anonymously creating a hook-up app.

Soon, her app is in demand at every high school in the state. But instead of hooking Keilah up with Gage, the app ships her best friend with him! To make matters worse, a glitch in the app exposes student data, and now, parents, school boards, and the public are demanding the creator of the app’s head on a platter. When a savvy hacker finds out Keilah is behind the app, he uses the info to blackmail her.

In order to save herself and her app, Keilah must make some hard decisions, including seeking help from the last person on Earth she should trust: Ryder Coleson.

With the help of some unlikely allies, Keilah will soon discover she may not be so undateable after all and when it comes to dating, there’s no app required.


Things About Natalie Decker

Hello, I’m Natalie and I’m so happy to be here today. There are some things I’d love to share that most do not know about me. I have a tendency to scrunch my nose when I’m writing, but can’t really get my thoughts out on the page in the order I need. I love Target and have a habit of going there at least three times a week and spend far too much. I have a passion for cooking. No, it’s bad. I make my own sauces, pastas, the works. My biggest secret though is I never intended to be an author. I had a habit of writing elaborate stories when it was called upon to do so in English class starting in middle school then throughout college. To me though, they were just assignments I never took them seriously. I never read them and said, “Wow I should do this.” My English professor tried to convince me that this was where my talents were, but I laughed at him. Literally laughed in his face. Yes, I know, not my finer moments. As a young adult at the time, I was horrible at listening to authority figures. I did not enjoy being told I was wrong in any kind of way. Naturally, I tried rebelling against this very idea and kept pursing what I was there for anyway which was Math. Again, yes, I know, total utter opposites of the spectrum. This though is something not very many know about me. The other thing I wanted to do was become a chef, but my family was against that whole idea from the start. Not that I couldn’t cook, they didn’t think you needed to go to school for something like this. Therefore, I went to my second option which was Math. So how did I get into writing books? After my daughter was born, I did a lot of reading in my down time. A lot of napping too. I had this story that would not leave my head. It was stuck until I finally started writing it out. At first, using pen and paper but it was taking entirely too long, and my hands were getting sore after a while. Yes, I am ambidextrous. My mother is left-handed, father is right, and when I learned to write I used both hands because I couldn’t decide. However, two hands couldn’t save me from getting cramps from writing too much. I began to type. Once I fluttered about the keyboard it never stopped until I was finished. That’s how I stopped rebelling and gave into my talents. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better.
