{Arc Review} Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu


Book Summary:

An unlikely teenager starts a feminist revolution at a small-town Texan high school in the new novel from Jennifer Matheiu, author of The Truth About Alice.


Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with a school administration at her small-town Texas 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!

My Review:

In a Texas high school, the boys rules the place. They can get away with anything they want. The girl their are picked on, have dress codes. When Vivian gets fed up how the school works, she becomes Moxie. And rebel girl who speaks her mind for the girls. Can Moxie help make Vivian days of high school worth it? I really enjoy this book, it was very different and fun. Even the music that mention in the book is real music back in the dad. I had to look up rebel girls song on youtube. You get to see how shy Vivian channel her inner Moxie in hiding, thanks to her mom’s old days of rebel and music. So are you ready to become an Moxie girl? Book comes out next week. Happy Reading!
