Hopper knows her new school is weird from the moment she sets eyes on it: the building looks like a haunted mansion. Her principal is scary, her Mandarin teacher seems to hate her, and the number nine is painted all over the school. When Eni and Hopper both notice that patterns in their school’s weirdness are linked to binary languages, they become friends and Secret Coders (First Second, $17.99 HB/ $9.99 PB). Gene Luen Yang combines fun puzzles with an entertaining story about a girl discovering who she is and finding her place in a new school. Mike Holmes uses a simple color palette to great effect in his illustrations for this first installment of a promising new series. Ages 8-12
