Moxie | Jennifer Mathieu
An unlikely teenager starts a feminist revolution at a small-town Texan high school in the new novel from Jennifer Mathieu, author of The Truth About Alice.MOXIE GIRLS FIGHT BACK! Vivan Carter is fed up. Fed up with a school administration at her high school that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment, and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.Viv's mom was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the '90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother's past and creates a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She's just blowing off steam, but other girls respond. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution. Moxie is a book about high school life that will make you wanna riot!

Aspirational. One hopes for these outcomes. Although I‘ve asked all the teen women I know to read this, I only just finished. Get to work, Amy Poehler & Netflix! #24in48 9:13:16

1. No teenagers left in my house. This handsome guy's 20th birthday.
2. I've really been enjoying the tagged YA novel.
3. Some reading, lesson planning and a long walk on the trail, or two.
4. 15°C/60°F was the high today, sun and clouds.
5. We had tacos, birthday boy's choice.

Possibly one of the best parts of my job is Silent Reading. 15-20 minutes at the start of nearly every English class to read independently chosen books. I often get to read along with my students. Today I'm reading this. #teachersoflitsy

LittlePixels Oh my gosh, I used to love that when I was in school! It felt like cheating, since it's what I would be doing at home anyway. 😉 8mo
BiblioLitten I used to love doing that too! 😃 8mo
CuriousG I didn't particularly like teaching English when I had to do it, but I *did* love the 20 of silent reading we did every day. It was heaven in the middle of a work day! 8mo

I flew through this one! Overall, a really good book that teenagers will love. A nice intro to feminism for teens. It was, however, a bit cliched. I found the depiction of the teachers a bit annoying and unrealistic. I don‘t think anyone who works in education can really be that clueless. Well, not all of them at least!

This was a book about a group of kick ass girls who where sick and tired out the boys of the school getting away with touching them inappropriately and talking to them like they were nothing. Also the men that were administrators telling them basically to get over it. I loved that the stood up for themselves and in the end got the changes that they deserved. I can't wait to see the movie that I heard is being made based off of this book!

Shley9225 Yeah the movie will be based on this book :) 8mo

This book is really something special. It is something that I think should be on the must read YA list because it really makes feminism into something to be proud of and to fight for with cause. I really liked the way this was written because it was engaging while attacking serious issues and being objective. Loved this book.

Lovesbooks87 I ordered a copy of this from Barnes & Noble. Can't wait to read it! 9mo
Victoriahoperose @Lovesbooks87 it‘s so good. I hope you love it! 9mo

3.5 🌟. The writer aptly captures the vibe of a small Texas town: Where HS 🏈 and its team players rule the roost! Where dress codes are ambiguous and 'violation' punishments are unjustly meted out! It's cute and all, but loaded with stereotypes.

This book is unquestionably a 5 ⭐️ pick! I am sure it will be a 2019 favorite. If you want to read an uplifting book about strong women who work together to fight systemic misogyny, this is the book for you. Julep says, “MOXIE GIRLS FIGHT BACK!” 👊🏼

This is a great story about young women standing up for themselves and fighting back against sexism. I liked how they learn not to just accept things because they were always that way, educated those around them, and supported each other. An important read for young men, too so they can see what everyday life is like for women.

What a fun giveaway from @TheFunkyBookworm !

I am really dying to read Moxie! Not only does it have Amy Poehler‘s stamp of approval, it involves spreading feminism through zines! I loved making and trading zines with friends in college, and even went to the Denver Zine Library many years ago!

@Johanna414 this beauty is heading back home - should be in the mail by tomorrow.

I LOVED this smart, fun YA novel about a young girl awakening to feminism. Definitely one of my favorites this year. Also, for my #GroupJ friends, I made us a Spotify playlist! Just search for Moxie Girls Fight Back!

This has been such fun - anyone up for another round? @Rachbb3 @TheWordJar #LMPBC
