Is there an app that can be purchased that will lock the kindle so that no one can open it without a code?

You can do this without an app. Pull down the notification bar, tap 'more,' scroll down, tap 'security,' then toggle 'lock screen password' on. Set it up according to the prompts, and just be sure to put your kindle to sleep by closing the cover, setting a low screen timeout, or pressing the power button when you leave it unattended. Anyone trying to use it will need to input your chosen password in order to get beyond the lock screen.
