My Life as a Coder: My Life series, Book 9
This is an intriguing book for fifth-to-ninth grade coders. It tells the story of a kid who is given a code-able computer with no computer games and he learns to code. His coding partner sabotages the scoop, and he has to solve the problem. This book is properly written with funny cartoon definitions. The book has some mentions to puberty and has mild crush gossip in it, though; the youngest kids who would enjoy it are fifth graders. The book is only mildly substantive so that most teens will not find it interesting. All in all, this is a book for tweens. If you are a tech geek this is terrific. It has coding in it and the characters are well developed. For those who can read code there are some jokes in there. The main character has a vet for a mom, so animal lovers will love this book. There are miniature horses in this book and they add fun. Also, the lead coder plays pranks for the rambunctious boy. All and all, this is a great book for all the tweens who love code and pets.
