Parents need to know that Living the Confidence Code: Real Girls. Real Stories. Real Confidence, by Katty Kay, Claire Shipman, and JillEllyn Riley, tells the stories of 30 girls whose experiences have helped them build the confidence to do great things.

The girls profiled are incredibly diverse: They hail from many different nations and represent a variety of ethnicities, genders, religions, socioeconomic classes, sexualities, and citizenship statuses. Girls with autism and disabled girls are also included. These young activists, photographers, feminists, entrepreneurs, scientists, and on and on also share their real and relatable struggles as they face and overcome odds small, big, and seemingly insurmountable. No graphic violence, though some stories include general descriptions of bullying, as well as references to police murders of unarmed Black people and street harassment of girls and women. Sex is implied, though not described, in stories about forced childhood marriage. Tweens and teens will find a lot of high-interest content and inspiration in this book.
