Book Review: Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

Published in 2017

Pages: 326

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Sypnosis from Goodreads:

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 book is honestly everything! It moved me and affected me so much! Everyone needs to read this book; frankly it’s a shame it wasn’t out when I was at high school, I feel like I would’ve waved it in everyone’s faces and insisted they read it, honestly, this would be an amazing book to study too!

But above all, it’s packed to the brim with feminism and girl power, and girls joining together to make a difference! There is nothing to fault about this novel, Vivian is one of my all time favourite protagonists, the book is told from her perspective; and to be honest, I felt her drive and passion, and her determination to actually make a change; honestly, this book was also eye opening too, it felt real, nothing about it was forced; and it just made me feel so many emotions! My blood boiled at the sheer moronic audacity of the Principal and ridiculous teacher, for not seeing that male students were given the better treatment; and honestly, how dare they get away with treating the female students like that?! This book made my feminist heart so proud and happy, I felt like I was a part of Moxie! I want to be a part of the group! It applies to us today! And we all should embrace that!

Definitely an instant favourite here! And I’ll be longing for a sequel and re reading this many times over!

And that concludes my review, until next time, happy reading,

Brooklyn 🙂
