Fabulous and highly recommended by this teacher who wants more kids to explore the creative side of engineering and problem solving.

This book carries with it good credibility as the author is a modern day code maker. It reads like an authentic resource for middle readers who want to learn more about code making and breaking.

Schwartz keeps it intriguing and involves appealing language without dumbing it down. The text is part history book and part introduction to the logical thinking necessary to create and break codes.

I would've loved this as a young reader and I know so many of my students would devour it, too.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me a digital copy of this text. I read and fairly reviewed it without obligation.
