In this tween adaptation of the bestselling adult book THE CONFIDENCE CODE, the origins and effects of confidence are explored and explained in a vibrant, approachable way. For a lot of girls, pre-teen years are when they’re most in need of that boost of confidence. With their feelings, bodies, friendships, and rules all changing so rapidly, it’s hard to be sure of themselves—and even harder to act like they are. Confidence is both the most necessary and the most elusive tool for girls today figuring out who they are and how they can succeed. And there’s not just one way to achieve confidence or to express yourself. Journalists Katty Kay and Claire Shipman draw from interviews with experts and from conversations with real girls who are on the front lines of the confidence struggle every day. This direct, highly readable guide comes with vibrant interior illustrations and explores key concepts in how to strive for and achieve confidence. Breaking down myths of perfectionism and other ideas that stifle girls from action, Katty and Claire provide a winning formula for how to overcome that dangerous voice in your head telling you that you can’t succeed.

She is also a frequent contributor to Meet the Press and Morning Joe and a regular guest host for The Diane Rehm Show on NPR. She’s the author, along with Claire Shipman, of two New York Times bestsellers, Womenomics: Work Less, Achieve More, Live Better and The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance—What Women Should Know. In addition to her work on women’s issues, Katty has covered the Clinton administration sex scandal, four presidential elections, and the wars in Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. She was at the Pentagon just twenty minutes after a hijacked plane flew into the building on 9/11—one of her most vivid journalistic memories is of interviewing soldiers still visibly shaking from the attack. Katty grew up all over the Middle East, where her father was posted as a British diplomat. She studied modern languages at Oxford and is a fluent French and Italian speaker with some “rusty Japanese.” Katty juggles her journalism with raising four children with her husband, a consultant.
