The Lost Code starts with a gripping moment of jeopardy, but the plot then stalls for nearly half the book, spending too much time with summer camp shenanigans. Eventually the narrative hits its stride, but even then, some readers will feel they're a step or two ahead of the characters.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
