Emmy in the Key of Code

Coding and music take center stage as new girl Emmy tries to find her place in a new school. In a new city, at a new school, twelve-year-old Emmy has never felt more out of tune. Things start to look up when she takes her first coding class, unexpectedly connecting with the material — and Abigail, a new friend — through a shared language: music.

But when Emmy gets bad news about their computer teacher, and finds out Abigail isn't being entirely honest about their friendship, she feels like her new life is screeching to a halt. Despite these obstacles, Emmy is determined to prove one thing: that, for the first time ever, she isn't a wrong note, but a musician in the world's most beautiful symphony. This innovative middle grade novel, written in a combination of verse and JavaScript, explores friendship, identity, and the joy of finding your place.

"Written in verse and JavaScript, this timely debut from author and software engineer Lucido champions girls in STEM and delivers a positive message about being 'always exactly yourself'.... Through the author’s creative mesh of coding, music, poetry, and narrative, this story uniquely conveys the art and beauty that can be found in multiple disciplines. Emmy’s desperate search for both friendship and affirmation is relatable and relevant, as is the powerful message that computer programming is for anyone interested." — Publishers Weekly
