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, preteen 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 audiobook 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.
