Moxie | Jennifer Mathieu
An unlikely teenager starts a feminist revolution at a small-town Texan high school in the new novel from Jennifer Mathieu, author of The Truth About Alice.MOXIE GIRLS FIGHT BACK! Vivan Carter is fed up. Fed up with a school 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!

After nearly six months of searching, I have finally found a copy of Moxie that is not the movie cover. Plus, it‘s brand new and hardcover! I got so lucky!

I finished this book a last week and read this book of school. The book has a very strong message of equality and I liked it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I read this book for school and overall really enjoyed it, I liked the feminism and the ‘fighting against injustice‘ aspect of the book a lot. I think that it raises awareness about sexism and I recommend it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I finished this earlier in the week. It‘s a good read, a story of ‘normal‘ (stay-out-of-trouble, not politically active) girls empowering each other to stand up to the toxic, misogynistic culture of their school.

My one criticism, I suppose (as a non-parent, not involved in the school system) was that the culture described seemed a little over the top, almost unrealistic.

Then yesterday OFSTED (UKs inspectorate of schools) released a report into

rockpools sexual harassment in UK schools, which basically says ‘it‘s way worse than we/you think‘, harassment is normalised, girls feel there‘s no point reporting it...

I feel suitably chastised and educated, and incredibly sad.

This was my #artsyfartsy book for #BBRC @LibrarianRyan @Sarahreadstoomuch

I just finished the movie, and even though some major things were different, I still really liked it. I did think it was weird that it was set it liberal Oregon instead of conservative Texas, it still was good.

Soooo good!!! This book was a real page turner. Vivian lives in a small town in Texas, population 6,000, and she is fed up with football team getting special treatment. She‘s fed up with the principal‘s son wearing gross T-shirts and having no consequences. She‘s sick of the bump ‘n‘ grab game the boys play. And she‘s sick of the random dress code checks. I loved every second of this book. Cant wait to watch the movie now! 5⭐️

This audio book was fantastic! I love reading a book about girl power and the characters being really sure of themselves. I enjoyed the main protagonist and the agenda she had set out to change the school setting and what females have to deal with due to the football team being all mighty and powerful. I love the message this book sent and females sticking together. Oh and excited to watch the Netflix show now!!!

TrishB The film is as good! 1y

I wasn't prepared for how much I really enjoyed this empowering page-turner. I'm always on board for a smart, well written YA novel about budding feminists fighting back against toxic rape culture. Gimme. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I thought it would have been more realistic if there had been some parental involvement in that high school horror show. (Also, some law enforcement would have been nice.)

TrishB Just watched the film with my daughter last night (we‘ve both read the book!) it was a good adaptation, we really enjoyed it 👍🏻 1y

Being a young adult librarian aide, I can‘t stress enough in how much we need these types of books, especially in the YA genre. Books that encourage girls/ women to find their voice, and take a stand against sexism and rape culture. Reminders that women CAN take up space, and your voice matters- It is powerful, and has the ability to make changes. This book is a CRUCIAL read that needs to be discussed in academia. 📚⬇️

Emily92Bibliophile One of the things I loved about this book was Seth and Viv‘s relationship. This is one of THE healthiest Teen relationships I‘ve seen in YA and I am HERE for it. Even if they argue and unintentionally hurt they other, they are willing to talk it out, and strive to do better in the future. (edited) 1y
Emily92Bibliophile I also love how Seth is a very understanding person, and while he doesn‘t at first understand the reality of the sexism within their school due to never experiencing it , * he listens and learns*. Yes, he makes mistakes, and slips up when negating the sexual assault experiences , but * he listens and learns*. He seems to be a very good guy who is intent on learning more about other people‘s experiences.

Has anyone watched the Netflix film Moxie? I really loved it, and my inner teenage girl has a big crush on Seth. It gave me laughs and happy tears. Immediately moving the book up on my TBR.

Annie1215 Yes! I loved it. The punk rock teen feminist in me loved it. I thought the entire time, 16 year old me would have drooled over Seth. 1y

Littens are, by and large, a generous bunch! Over my years on Litsy, I've received quite a number of excellent reads thanks to this generosity. I've read many, but have equally as many that I haven't gotten to yet. So, as part two of my #YearofReadingLitsy challenge I resolve to read at least one book each month that I've received from an awesome Litten 👊

Johanna414 I have been trying to do this too! So many great books from swaps that I feel guilty for not having read yet! 2y
TheKidUpstairs @Johanna414 I figured I wouldn't be the only Litten in this situation! 2y

“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!

Possibly one of the best parts of my job is Silent Reading. 15-20 minutes at the start of nearly every English class to read independently chosen books. I often get to read along with my students. Today I'm reading this. #teachersoflitsy

I flew through this one! Overall, a really good book that teenagers will love. A nice intro to feminism for teens. It was, however, a bit cliched. I found the depiction of the teachers a bit annoying and unrealistic. I don‘t think anyone who works in education can really be that clueless. Well, not all of them at least!

This was a book about a group of kick ass girls who where sick and tired out the boys of the school getting away with touching them inappropriately and talking to them like they were nothing. Also the men that were administrators telling them basically to get over it. I loved that the stood up for themselves and in the end got the changes that they deserved. I can't wait to see the movie that I heard is being made based off of this book!

This book is really something special. It is something that I think should be on the must read YA list because it really makes feminism into something to be proud of and to fight for with cause. I really liked the way this was written because it was engaging while attacking serious issues and being objective. Loved this book.

3.5 🌟. The writer aptly captures the vibe of a small Texas town: Where HS 🏈 and its team players rule the roost! Where dress codes are ambiguous and 'violation' punishments are unjustly meted out! It's cute and all, but loaded with stereotypes.
