Read this book with my children and husband. It was poignant and made me cry in several places, but it also led to insightful and compassionate conversations with my own children. I definitely recommend reading it and talking about it with the family.
“Moxie” analyzes how adolescents create their voice and identities when small minds have power. The main character Vivian‘s voice—at first quietly, but louder as she evolves—emerges through her desire to confront the sexism at her school. Mathieu recognizes that change for individuals and a community is not always easy, but the first small steps are important. Read it for the female empowerment and the references to the 90s‘ Riot Grrrls!
