Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with an 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!

Tawney’s Review:

This was a fantastic read that just had girl power all over it.

Vivian was a strong character fed up with all the sexist crap that goes on in high school regarding the football team, because they can do no wrong… and that’s what made this book rock!  She took matters into her own hand and made a feminist movement within her high school called Moxie.

Vivian started off as a character who wanted to stay under the radar but boy when she’s fired up she’s not one to contend with.  She stood up for what she believed in even if it could damage her social and academic life.

Should you read it? Yes! A powerful book that empowers female liberties and what it means to stand up for what’s right.
