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.
Dateable is a young adult contemporary romance by Natalie Decker. Dateable is a fun, quick and sweet read that I think would be great for YA readers of all ages that are looking for fluffy fun friends dating story. I enjoyed this book, but I found myself wishing that it were a little bit longer so I could get some more depth and detail with the characters and especially with the coding hobby of our main character. But if you are looking for a cute read that you can easily finish in a few hours, dateable might be the perfect book for you to pick up.
In Dateable, we meet our main character Keilah and her best friends Rdyer and Whitney. The way Keilah looks on the cover was giving me total Kailah from MTV’s the Challenge vibes! (let me know if you agree!) but looks and name are where the similarities end, because out dateable Keilah is a super nerd. She loves reading and coding and I loved her. I was so excited to see that coding and creating an app was going to play such a big part of this book, that I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of the actual coding and behind the scenes of the app going on. But putting that aside, Dateable has a classic young adult storyline that is always a hit for me. Girl likes popular boy. Girl enlists her friends to get popular boy to notice her. Along the way, girl discovers she actually likes someone else. If that is a storyline you enjoy, then you will like Dateable.
This book was a lot of fun. I liked our main trio of characters, the romance was sweet, and the story hit the spot. It was shorter than I expected, coming in at under 200 pages. So there is not a lot of room for a deep dive into the details of the app, but it was an easy and lighthearted read that I finished in under 2 hours. Great if you are looking to devour a book in one night. Dateable was a sweet quick read that I enjoyed.

With everything going on in the world I really need a light-hearted YA book.
