Booklist - 02/01/2021 Lucy Lopez is a third grader whose older sister, Elena, has been spending a lot of time coding with her friends. To try to get more time with Elena herself, Lucy creates the Let’s Have Fun Club, so they can work together and earn badges that they create. At first it works great and both girls have fun, but Elena becomes annoyed anytime Lucy turns out to be good at the same things she is. Lucy doesn’t understand why sharing interests or talents is a problem, so she joins the after-school coding club. Unfortunately, Elena does not like this, especially when Lucy discovers she is as good as, if not better than, Elena at coding. Not to worry, the sisters eventually turn their rift into a bonding opportunity. This illustrated early-chapter book takes on sibling rivalry and STEM themes in a way that will resonate with many readers and encourage them to try new things. A natural pick for fans of Andrea Beaty's Questioneers series or Gene Luen Yang's Secret Coders books. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
