In this first book of her series, Courtney is the best gamer at the arcade. But she can’t understand why there aren’t more girl characters in video games.
When a school project allows her to create her own video game, the hero is a girl who knows how to handle any situation—something Courtney struggles with in real life. Whether it’s learning to share a room with her stepsister or supporting her mom when she announces she’s running for mayor, Courtney’s blended family has to learn to work together differently. It’s a whole new game for Courtney, and she’s figuring out the rules as she goes.

This audiobook includes a downloadable PDF containing a list of popular words from the 1980s that are heard throughout the story.
