March 2023 Book Club: Seven Percent of Ro Devereux by Ellen O’Clover

The Book

Seven Percent of Ro Devereux released January 17, 2023.

Why did we pick this book?

We saw that the book was about an app called MASH and this game was a huge deal in the early 2000s for kids. It was so much fun using it to see what your future would entail. We thought it would be fun to read a romcom version of a childhood game, which also happens to have a fake dating trope.

We’re so excited to discuss the book and learn more about the app that Ro designed. If you’d like to join us, book club is on March 19, 2023. Email for the link.

What is this book about?

Ro Deverux built an app that can tell you your future. Ro’s app, MASH, based on the game Mansion Apartment Shack House, is over 90% accurate. The app can even find you your perfect match. But quickly, her class project becomes much bigger than she ever anticipated. Suddenly, her app is becoming a big deal and Ro feels one step close to achieving her Silicon Valley dream career.

But when she uses her app to find her perfect match, it says it’s Miller, her ex-best friend/the last person she wants to be around. To prove that her app works to the tech world, she has to figure things out with Miller. Only they haven’t been friend since a disastrous fight ruined everything years ago.

If Ro wants her dream life and her app to get backed by a big company, she needs to convince Miller to fake date her publicly. But being around him is dangerous and conversations about the past are hard to ignore. Can Ro and Miller overcome their differences?
