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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With an acceptance rate of 2%, ValleyStart, a Silicon Valley tech incubator for high schoolers, is more selective than even Stanford. Lucy Katz carefully curates her social media profile even as she dreams of becoming a CEO. Doing well at ValleyStart means getting herself off of the waitlist at Stanford. In Cambridge, Maddie builds her graphic design business. She's not interested in teamwork ValleyStart can give her client list a boost so she can skip college and stay home with her brother. College isn't on Delia's radar, either; the small-town Illinois girl taught herself how to code, and she's hoping to land a job so her parents can put all their money toward their struggling theater company. When the three some of the only girls in the competition are put together to form a team, things don't exactly run smoothly at first. But as the competition intensifies, they learn exactly how much the odds are stacked against girls in the world of tech and what it would mean to win. Bold and timely, this STEM-friendly romp is empowering and invigorating.--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2019 Booklist"
