A great start to a clever new series!  Lucy has a pressing need to learn how to code- but when she joins the coding club at her school she discovers that it might not be something she can rush.  This story shows girls that many important things- coding, friendship, school- can take time, patience, and hard work.  It also makes a fun introduction to loops, variables, input/output, and conditionals!

— Kelly


Perfect for fans of The Babysitters Club and anyone interested in computer science, this series is published in partnership with the organization Girls Who Code

Loops, variables, input/output - Lucy can't wait to get started with the new coding club at school. Finally, an after school activity that she's really interested in. But Lucy's excitement turns to disappointment when she's put into a work group with girls she barely knows. All she wanted to do was make an app that she believes will help someone very special to her.

Suddenly, Lucy begins to get cryptic coding messages and needs some help translating them. She soon discovers that coding - and friendship - takes time, dedication, and some laughs.
