I was sent this book free by NetGalley for review. I am a secondary Computer Science Teacher who has been thinking about starting a girls coding club so I was already looking forward to reading this book after watching Reshma's TED talk and looking at Girls Who Code. 

What I wasn't expecting was that she would be so down to earth and un-heroine like. She sounds like the kind of woman you could have a really good chat about life with over a gin and tonic in the pub. I loved her stories and her amazing bravery in starting GWC when she had never coded a day in her life, simply because she realised that there was a need for it. 

She's inspiring and humbling and brave but definitely not perfect - here's to real, kind, intelligent women!

Yes yes yes. Everyone needs to read this. What an insightful, wise and pointed book. Recommending to everyone around me, brb.

The idea of being brave, not perfect, particularly for women, is a good one.  Unfortunately I found this a little simplistic, almost patronising. I feel as if it needs tighter editing to avoid repetition, or rewriting to be suitable for young adults.
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the ARC

A good helpful book if your looking to break out of the cycle of how you were raised, breaking out of believing you aren’t good enough, that you have to be perfect.  There are some good tips here, I found it a bit repetitive at times, but it has good sound helpful ideas.  Sometimes a bit simplistic but I did find it helpful, a good starting point to jump off into further reading

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion
