Description

New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestseller!

Girls can rule the world—all they need is confidence. This empowering, entertaining guide from the bestselling authors of The Confidence Code gives girls the essential yet elusive code to becoming bold, brave, and fearless.

It's a paradox familiar to parents everywhere: girls are achieving like never before, yet they're consumed with doubt on the inside. Girls worry constantly about how they look, what people think, whether to try out for a sports team or school play, why they aren't getting "perfect" grades, and how many likes and followers they have online.

Katty Kay and Claire Shipman use cutting-edge science and research, as well as proven methods of behavioral change, to reach girls just when they need it the most—the tween and teen years.

Packed with graphic novel strips; appealing illustrations; fun lists, quizzes, and challenges; and true stories from tons of real girls, The Confidence Code for Girls teaches girls to embrace risk, deal with failure, and be their most authentic selves.

If you or the girl in your life loved The Gutsy Girl or Rad American Women A-Z, you'll love this.

        April 16, 2018
        Drawing from their title for adults, The Confidence Code, TV news anchors and co-authors Kay and Shipman offer a handbook for confidence-building directed at girls. The authors discuss ways to override negative thought patterns through mindfulness techniques and urge readers to take risks, foster positive relationships, and to move forward after making mistakes. Quizzes, real-world challenges to grow confidence, and thought-provoking questions invite readers to apply the material to their own circumstances, while Lawson’s comic panels and cartoon spot art add humor and visual texture. Culled from their conversations with girls from different cultures and backgrounds nationwide, Kay and Shipman present real-life examples of individuals who have empowered themselves within their own schools and communities. Confidence, the authors suggest, comes not from being perfect, but from building a strong foundation of self-awareness, knowledge, and resilience—and it’s always a work in progress. Ages 8–12.

        June 1, 2018

        Gr 5-8-A book for self-effacing readers who have ever doubted their capabilities. Filled with playful illustrations, comic panels, and confidence-boosting stories, this how-to title is accessible and comprehensive. The book is broken down into three main sections: "Risk More," "Think Less," and "Be Yourself." Each segment addresses why girls, specifically, can feel unsure of themselves, how they can break out of habits that hold them back, take healthy risks, and build confidence. This is not one big pep talk. Readers will enjoy discovering more about their brains and how to handle real-life situations, from fall-outs with friends to bombing a big test, with different strategies for confidently tackling each issue. Kay, Shipman, and Riley touch on ways race, gender, culture, personal experiences, and more impact ideas about girlhood. However, not every entry is successful. A scenario where a girl named Farrah, who wears a hijab, "tries to show them [her classmates] that she is really just like they are" fails to unpack the dynamics of the situation and places the onus of healing on the person who is being marginalized rather than the students exhibiting prejudiced behavior. That said, there is much within these pages for tweens to take on big challenges with the inner resources they need. VERDICT Consider for middle school collections where guides and self-improvement titles are popular.-Ashley Fetterolf, Indian Creek Upper School, Crownsville, MD

        This junior version of The Confidence Code (2014) encourages pre- and early-teen girls to crack the Code, building the skills they need to meet challenges with "Why not?" instead of "No way!"Confidence is "that incredible energy when you find your courage and try something that's not easy," and the book's goal is to help readers discover their individual codes. It is divided into three sections, each culminating with one of the Code's three elements: "Risk More!" "Think Less!" "Be Yourself!" The authors suggest readers begin a "Confidence Notebook" in which to do the book's activities, including "Confidence Warm-ups" and "Your Turn" exercises, as well as take "Confidence Quizzes" and puzzle out "Confidence Conundrums." "Girls of Action" and "Confidence Close-ups" sidebars profile real girls and their confidence struggles and triumphs. Featured girls include Amiya Zafar, an American Muslim boxer who fought to wear her hijab during bouts; Cordelia Longo, an Asian-American girl who worked to make sanitary products free in her school; and the transition journey of a girl named Toni who was born "Tony." "Quick Quotes" from real girls, cartoon illustrations (with a commendably diverse cast), and faux hand-lettering provide lots of engagement. Backmatter includes a lengthy list of resources and endnotes, both of which provide a trove of information from reputable sources.Needs to find its way into the hands of anyone who ever identifies as a girl.
