>I gave this book 4.5 stars

This inspiring true story is about how two teens, Sophie and Andy, found the magic of coding and made the game Tampon Run, which went viral.
          (From the game: "the taboo that surrounds [menstruation] teaches women that a normal and natural bodily function is embarrassing and crude...The game is a way of discussing the taboo in an accessible way.")

       Computer coding is a male dominated world and this book shows how girls everywhere can achieve dreams no matter what. It doesn't matter if you don't know what your doing or you take a wrong turn in life, you can still make your way to happiness. It's okay to be unsure of what to do and this book proves it.

       The book is honest bringing new perspectives and thoughts to climbing the ladder by working hard. These young girls follow their passions and the road of fear and insecurity without a clue at what they're doing - but manage to succeed at the end.

       You need to make sacrifices in life, but like the girls learnt - you need to be yourself and prioritize things that are important to you. Remember that there are people backing you up and working together can be helpful and rewarding.

      Even if you aren't interested in coding, this book is great for showing you that you don't need to know what life will bring, just work hard and success can be reached - even after some mistakes.

     Or maybe after reading this you'll be excited to start out trying coding:
"Coding is empowering, it's creative, and it's fun." -Sophie
Read on lovelies,
