Children Ages 10+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Suzy Jackson's youthful voice brings out the poignancy in a story that celebrates the joys of coding, creating, and trusting in new friendships. Although her parents are both talented musicians, new kid Emmy chooses a different path, signing up for computer coding instead of music. Right away, she realizes that coding is special. She is able to be beautiful and articulate in this exciting language, and she creates code-based symphonies that are stunning in their own right. This audiobook is told in free verse, with coding syntax and musical terms woven throughout. Some of the coding language doesn't translate perfectly into audio, but what listeners will remember is Jackson's deft handling of rhythm and timing and her affecting portrayal of Emmy's journey of self-discovery.
