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.


"The story, it just so swoony... (not sure if that is even a word:) This book is just sooo good. I read it in one sitting." - Anie "I'm just going to start by saying I loved Right Text Wrong Number. It starts with almost instant drama between Layla and her boyfriend Adam. She catches him sexting some chick and she tries to fire back at the other girl and winds up text Tyler instead. From that point on I was hooked!" —Chelsea Fryou "I'm still smiling!" —Dayreader Reviewer "This is a good read and can't wait to read Juliet story." —Goodreads Reviewer "This is a cute and solid young adult romance. " —Goodreads Reviewer "I was so loving this book! I stayed up so late reading it because I couldn't put it down!"—Hadassah Harper "Tyler and Layla are the couple everyone wants to be. Right Text Wrong Number is funny, heartwarming, and unputdownable. —Hensley Park, author of Stay With Me and Blurred Lines "This was probably my favorite book by Natalie Decker, and I've read all of them, so that's saying something. :) Right Text Wrong Number plays on all of my favorite tropes and makes them fresh and fun. I LOVE the set up of texting your enemy and falling for him accidentally. Layla was a strong and emphatic character, whose struggles really reminded me of being in high school. I rooted for her the entire way, which wasn't hard because Tyler was a swoony love interest and you wanted them to get together. This book is a great young adult romance, perfect for teen readers or adults who still remember the firey fun of teenage love. You'll finish this book with a smile on your face. (Thanks to the publisher for providing me an advanced copy for review.)"—Cheyanne Young, author of The Breakup Support Group
