4.5 out of 5 stars.
First published in September 2017, “Moxie” is the fourth novel to be published by American author Jennifer Mathieu. The story is told from the perspective of Vivian Carter, a junior at East Rockport High School who creates a zine in an attempt to combat the sexist tendencies of her school. Inspired by her mother and the Riot Grrrl movement in the 90s, Vivian creates “Moxie” and starts a movement that will shake her school to its core.
Before I go into the nitty-gritty of this book, I have to say that I absolutely ADORED this story. It struck me in a way that a book hasn’t in a very long time, and I’m including books that I have raved about within the last year. I have some issues with certain aspects of the plot, but overall I think that this is an incredible book that a lot more people need to read.
