This is an amazing simple intro into coding computer science! I love the idea of creating classes for girls in middle school to teach them how to code and also to show the many wondeful things computer science can do! It features all women in science who are professionals, and the women in histor...

When I was at ALA, and I saw ARCs of this, I had to pick one up! I am very interested in coding and found this book to be super informative and inspiring!

I think the theme of appealing to girls is good - but...

Will definitely get this for the library and feel really inspired to try coding as well as maker space aga...

I listened to the book and know I am going to read it. This is a good intro book to try and encourage young women to learn to code. I found the book inspirational, but technology wise I don't think just from reading or listening to this book I could create an App or website. I would need more ins...
