Year 17, Book 38

38. The Code for Love and Heartbreak by Jillian Cantor

This was a sweet retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma with Emma being a high school senior who convinces her coding club to develop a match making app for their school in order to win the state championship. Emma is convinced that if she can just figure out the right mathematical algorithm then she will be able to find out who should be in love, but if her app works then why are couples breaking up and why is she developing feelings for her club co-president when he’s matched with someone else? I give it a 7 out of 10.
