Part how-to, part girl empowerment, and all fun, from the leader of the movement championed by Sheryl Sandberg, Jack Dorsey, and other giants of tech.

Bursting with down-to-earth explanations of coding principles and real-life stories of girls and women working at places like Pixar and NASA, this book shows what a huge role computer science plays in our lives and how much fun it can be. No matter your interest - sports, the arts, baking, student government, social justice - coding can help you do what you love and make your dreams come true. Whether you're a girl who's never coded before, a girl who codes, or a parent raising one, this entertaining audiobook will have you itching to create your own apps, games, and robots to make the world a better place.

We've been reading through it and so far its a little light on the "coding", also the author starts off by lamenting how girls are from an early age how girls are pushed away from STEM by all the stereotypes they see everyday, and how whats aimed at girls is to be pretty, etc.. Then goes on to use incredibly stereotypical examples in her lessons... (an app that lets girls enter their zipcode to find out the best hair solution for the day based on the weather... etc.. etc..) Kinda frustrating as I'm also sick of girls (daughter, girlfriend (who is also a software engineer)) being stereotyped all the time...
I think the author's intentions are good, but I'm not sold on her methods. Also HTML & CSS is not coding, its presentation ;)

Save your money and buy one of those "20 games with scratch" instead, if your daughter won't develop any interest in computer science after that, 150 pages of comics about empowered women featuring all races, colours, religions and shapes having meetings at work won't change it.
