ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Screen Queens
Author: Lori Goldstein
Published by: Razerbill
Publication date: June 11, 2019
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction
The Bold Type meets The Social Network when three girls vying for prestigious summer internships through a startup incubator program uncover the truth about what it means to succeed in the male-dominated world of tech.
This summer Silicon Valley is a girls’ club.
Three thousand applicants. An acceptance rate of two percent. A dream internship for the winning team. ValleyStart is the most prestigious high school tech incubator competition in the country. Lucy Katz, Maddie Li, and Delia Meyer have secured their spots. And they’ve come to win.
Meet the Screen Queens.
Lucy Katz was born and raised in Palo Alto, so tech, well, it runs in her blood. A social butterfly and CEO in-the-making, Lucy is ready to win and party.
East Coast designer, Maddie Li left her home and small business behind for a summer at ValleyStart. Maddie thinks she’s only there to bolster her graphic design portfolio, not to make friends.
Delia Meyer taught herself how to code on a hand-me-down computer in her tiny Midwestern town. Now, it’s time for the big leagues–ValleyStart–but super shy Delia isn’t sure if she can hack it (pun intended).
When the competition kicks off, Lucy, Maddie, and Delia realize just how challenging the next five weeks will be. As if there wasn’t enough pressure already, the girls learn that they would be the only all-female team to win ever. Add in one first love, a two-faced mentor, and an ex-boyfriend turned nemesis and things get…complicated.
Filled with humor, heart, and a whole lot of girl power, Screen Queens is perfect for fans of Morgan Matson, Jenny Han, and The Bold Type
This book was so much fun! I loved the hate to love friendship & I learned a lot about the tech world.
Family wasn’t just the one you were born to. It was the one you made for yourself. And remade.
I thought the book did well at portraying the way technology affects society. Pulse is a scary thing and as kids grow up in this age of technology who knows how much more it will affect them socially.
Some people are just plain mean, but it’s up to them to change, not you. Never stop being Cinderella..
Delia is the timid small town girl who taught herself how to code. Her quirky actor parents have owned a small theater but now that it’s getting less and less traffic Delia strives to win ValleyStart so she can help them financially. I enjoyed her character and the small love story between her and one of her fellow competitors!
You’re a true unicorn….
Maddie is a closed off entrepreneur whose parents are going through a divorce & have put her and her little brother secondary to their own ambitions. Her character arc was the best to read because you get to see how she learns to open up and trust Lucy and Delia.
I was giving you a shield when what you really needed was a sword.
Lucy is the epitome of superficial as she constantly checks her Pulse rating. When she finds herself in an unsafe position she’s forced to decide whether to speak up or let the man decide her fate for her. Watch as she realizes that a world outside of your Pulse rating is much more fulfilling than a life caught up in ratings.
The less someone expects of you, the more you can impress them.
This book about powerful women in a tech world filled with men was reminiscent of Moxie and I loved it! It is a great book about building friendships and standing up for yourself and others!
