Children's: Young Adult Fiction
Cameron Goldberg has always felt compelled to create techy things, like the ring she implanted with an NFC chip, allowing her to open school doors with just a wave of her hand. But when she finally gets the chance to take a computer science elective, Cam discovers how unwelcome she is there. Faced with sexist taunts that go unchecked by the teacher, Cam leans on her best friend Viv while working with fellow misfit Jackson, a misanthropic gamer, to develop an app that exposes obstacles faced by women in STEM — a project that sadly meets with little success. Now further motivated to push back against male hazing and her own imposter syndrome, Cam conspires with Viv to engineer their way into an extracurricular RoboSub club that ultimately lands them in a national competition, placing Cam’s talent on full display, but forcing collaboration with the boys who’ve opposed her all semester. MOXIE x CLICK'D (58K) Targets young YA with MG crossover potential.
