Girls Who Code: the Friendship Code (Book #1) by Stacia Duetsch -ESSENTIAL

Duetsch, Stacia Girls Who Code: the Friendship Code (Book #1), 137 pgs. Penguin (Penguin Random House), 2017.  $13. Language: G (1swear G word); Mature Content: G; Violence: G
Lucy is thrilled about the new after school coding club. But its moving too slow for her, after all the app she wants to create is sort of urgent, to help her uncle who has cancer. But when she starts getting anonymous notes in computer code, it leads her to new friends, and a fun journey to solve the puzzles.
This is a fantastic read with a group of friends and characters that are believable and relatable. The coding component feels like a natural part of the story instead of an assignment for the reader. The cover is appealing and I am sure (especially after next months annual Hour of Code) that this will be a popular book. Great for 3rd thru 6th grade.
