Moxie – Jennifer Mathieu ★★★★★

Blurb; Moxie girls fight back!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her small-town Texas high school that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes and hallway harassment. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv’s mom was a punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ’90s, so 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. Pretty soon Viv is forging friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, and she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.

My Review; This is one I got through the library as I really wanted to read it before it hits Netflix and I am so glad I got round to reading it. Wow. Amazing. Powerful. Girl power. Empowering. Bold. Brave. Emotional. This is a school of girls going against the boys and sexist staff to be heard. It’s honestly an outstanding read and should be read by all young girls school age. Take note.

If you’re a woman/girl who survived her high school years you are bound to relate to this book 99%. The girls are just so brave. Determined. They want to be heard and they do. They all come together in the end. I cannot wait to see the adaption to Netflix now. Also contains a little bit of high school romance. Ooh. I loved it all. Made me smile. Made me want to join them. Made me proud. Its a hidden message of if we all work together we can be heard. Action will be taken. You will win. A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend.
