Welcome to the next stop on the blog tour for Jennifer Mathieu’s Moxie! I have loved all of Mathieu’s books and am so excited for this one. Here’s more about it:
About the Book:
MOXIE GIRLS FIGHT BACK!
Vivian 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!
How amazing does that sound? I have always loved the word “moxie.” It’s just such a great term and way to be described. Google defines it as, “force of character, determination, or nerve.” Merriam- Webster defines it as, “energy, pep,” or “courage, determination,” or, “know-how.” I love all of these!
For today’s post I decided to put together a list of “Moxie Girl Must Haves!” These are fun products I think are great for moxie girls. Of course real moxie girl “must haves” are whatever you as a moxie girl love! These are just some of my favorites that I either have or want!
