I loved this book. I've been interested in programing for 35 years. I'm not much good at it but still find it fascinating. That's why I picked this book up, I'm surely not the targeted audience old white male, but I learned a lot about feminism, ambition, and the courage to put yourself out there...

See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten! My copy was an ARC I got as a reviewer for YA Books Central.
If you can’t tell by the sad self-designed blog graphics, I kinda like Photoshop, digital design in general, and web design. I took web and digital design classes in high school, but the web desig...

I don't read many memoirs. To me, books are an escapism from reality, and memoirs and other non-fiction books are the complete opposite. Because of this, I became kind of reluctant after I requested this book and found out it was a memoir, but I still dove in with high hopes- hopes tha...

Excellent book about the technical world of gaming. I recommend this book if this is a subject you're interested in or you to be part of this industry. I appreciated how it's simple to read and doesn't bog you with techno babble.

I didn't like the writing too much, which is understandable, but the message was phenomenal. GIRLS CODING, and also a video game where you throw tampons at people.
I really appreciated how the authors went into how they tackled each project and each line of code. Sometimes it's really o...

As someone who heard about Tampon Run way back when it first came out, and loved the concept of it (not to mention playing it), I was pretty interested in this book.
I don't usually read non-fiction, but I really enjoyed how Girl Code read with a dual POV. Both Sophie and Andie were relatable and...

I only came across this gem because I'm doing Book Riot's Read Harder challenge, and it met the non-fiction about technology criteria. It's a novella-size memoir by the two teenagers who developed the game Tampon Run at Girls Who Code. (I'm old. I'd never heard of either of these things.) It's a...

I got this book through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
Girl Code is a nonfiction book about two girls who learn to code and go viral with the game they developed.
The book is written by Andrea and Sophie and we get both of their opinions and views and experiences through alternating c...

Clearly I love a great book about female empowerment, and Girl Code is no exception.
Absolutely awesome! This is my new favorite book and I have bought several copies for my high school library to give to both male and female aspiring coders and any student who needs to be inspired to persevere i...
