BCB Living the Confidence Code



The authors of the bestselling phenomenon The Confidence Code for Girls, which spent TWENTY-EIGHT WEEKS on the New York Times middle grade bestseller list, return to share more confidence-boosting advice and the stories of real-life Girls of Action making a difference in the world today.

The Confidence Code for Girls spent twenty-eight weeks on the New York Times bestseller list! Clearly, the tenants of the confidence code (risk more, think less, and be yourself!) are resonating with women and girls across the country.

Journalists Katty Kay and Claire Shipman want to continue inspiring girls to become their most confident selves with Living the Confidence Code, a middle grade biography collection starring today’s brightest, most determined girls around the world, who have used their confidence to successfully make their dreams come true.

Written in Katty and Claire’s relatable, accessible style, this paper-over-board book will include profiles of 25–30 girls, along with in-depth interviews and graphic novel panels. Below is a list of the current confirmed participants for the book. The authors are aiming to include two-thirds girls who have achieved spectacular things on a large scale or in the public eye and one-third girls who have overcome personal obstacles or made a difference in a more relatable, everyday way.
