review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-04-24 10:22
Book review : Moxie
Moxie: A Novel - Jennifer Mathieu

March 24-26

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

Review : I really loved this book it was awesome vivian gets inspired by her mom's zines to create this zine called moxie girls and thats what I loved this whole girl power thing. There are a lot of douche bag guys in vivians school , vivian ends up making friends with a girl name lucy and I really like lucy and vivians friendship. The whole dress code shit is such a sexist bullshit , but sadly its a real thing that happens . Vivian meets the new guy in her school while sneaking into the school early to pass out moxie he keeps her secret and they end up going out on a date which was sweet . After someone made an announcement of a walk out cause the principle son almost raped this girl it happens the walk out happens and what I loved about this book it gives girls a voice I really want to read more books like this .


Quotes 

it occurs to me that this is what it means to be a feminist. Not a humanist or an equalist or whatever. But a feminist. It’s not a bad word. After today it might be my favorite word. Because really all it is is girls supporting each other and wanting to be treated like human beings in a world that’s always finding ways to tell them they’re not.” 


Making girls monitor their behavior and their appearance because boys are supposedly unable to control themselves? That is one of the oldest fucking tricks in the book.”

Because here’s the thing about details—they can also be a distraction. Add too many and it obscures the brutal truth about a situation. They become the gaudy necklace that hides the tracheotomy scar. I make no attempts to disguise my scars. I just pretend they don’t exist

Remind me to give you a salary raise.” I choked on a cough. “For what?” “For the sage counsel—and the other vital services you provide me.” He winked. I laughed in earnest, and squeezed his face as I pressed a swift kiss to his mouth. “Shameless flirt.”
