Mori and her friends live a normal life on Firefly Lane in their utopian community, Old Harmonie. In a world this safe and perfect, they've never had to question anything . . . never had to wonder about how their lives came to be. Until a new girl named Ilana moves in. She's so perfect that Mori and her friends are curious . . . Where exactly did Ilana come from, and why does she act so strange sometimes? When Ilana's secret is revealed, the kids on Firefly Lane must decide: is it finally time to start questioning the only world they've ever known?

In a stunningly imaginative story, critically acclaimed author Megan Frazer Blakemore takes readers on a journey with five friends--new and old--that will have everyone talking about not just what makes people human, but what makes them true friends.

    Have you ever heard of a place named Old Harmonie? Or a road called Firefly Lane? Best friends, Morie, Julia, Benji and Theo live in Old Harmonie on the Firefly Lane. That is where the book, The Firefly Code by Megan Frazer Blakemore and it takes place in the future, that's how it gets its name because the 5 friends are special in a good way and they all live on Firefly Lane and the book is called The Firefly Code so I think that is how it gets its name. Morie, the protagonist, tries to be friends with Ilanna, the antagonist and Ilanna is the antagonist because later on in the book she hurts Morie on an accident but she still hurts her and leaves a bruise on Mori, witch I will explain more of later.They do become friends, and become close. The two girls have a secret place in the woods where they hang out. But one time when Ilanna wanted to show Mori something Ilanna was pulling Mori and she left a handprint on her. Another time Ilanna and Julia were competing with each other and when Julia won Ilanna didn't come out of her house in days. Over time, Mori begins to wonder why Ilanna acts out of character. What she finds out is disturbing but it won’t change the friendship between the two girls. The turning point in my book is when Mori and her friends find something out about Ilanna. I recommend this book to whoever is in 7th grade.
