  • How to Hack a Heartbreak # Arc Review

    Swipe right for love. Swipe left for disaster.

    By day, Mel Strickland is an underemployed helpdesk tech at a startup incubator, Hatch, where she helps entitled brogrammers--"Hatchlings"--who can't even fix their own laptops, but are apparently the next wave of startup geniuses. And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving dudes she's matched with on the ubiquitous dating app, Fluttr.

    But after one dick pic too many, Mel has had it. Using her brilliant coding skills, she designs an app of her own, one that allows users to log harrassers and abusers in online dating space. It's called JerkAlert, and it goes viral overnight.

    Mel is suddenly in way over her head. Worse still, her almost-boyfriend, the dreamy Alex Hernandez--the only non-douchey guy at Hatch--has no idea she's the brains behind the app. Soon, Mel is faced with a terrible choice: one that could destroy her career, love life, and friendships, or change her life forever.

    THE ASSISTANTS meets Doree Shafrir’s STARTUP in this snarky, fun, and incredibly timely novel about women in tech and dating in NYC; a breezy read—with a conscience—for the BuzzFeed generation.


    In the predominantly male environment, a girl needs to discover her strength and fight for her potential.

    Melanie preferred the peace of mind of a well-paid job rather than taking a risk in the world of software creation, but in annoying herself with so many frustrated and uncompromising dates with ends in disaster for both her and her friends, she decided to create a way to warn other women about men. 

    She suffers from both the guys at work and on dates that ends up having serious trust issues and when the cute Alex approaches her, she really doesn't know if she can trust him or not.

    I really liked the way the writer deals with the theme of sexism in the workplace especially in the subject area of the book. Computing. The resolution of the conflict point was also quite creative and exciting.

    I loved the cover and the choice of title.

    4/5 stars


    No ambiente predominantemente masculino, uma garota precisa descobrir sua força e lutar por seu potencial. 

    Melanie preferiu a tranquilidade de um emprego com salário certo do que se arriscar no mundo de criação de software, mas ao se irritar com tantos encontros frustrados e caras sem compromisso tanto dela como das amigas, ela resolve criar uma forma de alertar outras mulheres sobre homens que não prestam.

    Ela sofre tanto com os caras tanto no trablho como nos encontros que acaba tendo sérios problemas de confiança e quando o fofo Alex se aproxima dela, ela realmente fica sem saber se pode confiar nele ao não. 

    Gostei demais da forma como a escritora trata o tema do sexismo no ambiente de trabalho principalmente na área tema do livro. Computação.  A resolução do ponto de conflito tambem foi bastante criativa e empolgante.

    Amei a capa e a escolha do título.
