Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Secret Coders series:
"Gene Luen Yang’s talent is prodigious, his enthusiasm contagious . . . Even this confirmed technophobe was ready to learn coding." —Katherine Applegate, author ofCrenshaw andThe One and Only Ivan
"Gene Yang brings computer coding to life." —Entertainment Weekly
"By the end of Secret Coders, readers will learn the three major ways that code is organized, right alongside Hopper and Eni, not as something dry or rote, but something transformative." —Wired
"While the coding instruction's as top-notch as ever, in this installment it's interpersonal dynamics and characters that, satisfyingly, take center stage."—Kirkus
