This book is badass! I really don't know why more people haven't read it. It is so empowering. I actually clenched my fists a few times while reading this. It got me angry the things that were happening! I never actually realized how bad sexism is in the world until I read this book. LIKE THIS COMMENT IF YOU THINK THIS BOOK IS BADASS! 555555555 STARS

Amy Poehler is directing the Netflix adaptation. Please let it be as good as this book!

This book gives a nod to the 80's Punk Zine Culture, and is all about Female Empowerment.

MOXIE GIRLS FIGHT BACK!

(Also, what's "moxie"? What year did THAT come from?)

“Moxie” didn’t impress me. Having read “The Nowhere Girls” by Amy Reed, I expected another empowering and thought provoking novel, this time based in a small town. But this book just doesn’t strike any emotions. Vivian is tired of the sexism that takes place in her school. Day after day, football jocks are permitted to wear degrading and sexist t-shirts, while girls are sent home for minor dress code violations. Fed up with the undisputed behaviour of the males in her school and inspired by her mother, a former Riot Grrrl, Viv begins writing zines under the name “Moxie” and sparks revolution in her school. I loved how the zines were shown in the book; they really enhanced the experience and gave a great visual. On the other hand, this book was a bit of a stretch and didn’t focus as much on the feminism and empowerment topics as much as I would’ve liked. I’d recommend you read “The Nowhere Girls” instead.

Absolutely love this book. Every girl should read this. And not just girls, either. The book has some positive messages and examples for men on how to be an ally.

This book fits right in with all of the movements that are currently in the news. It's all about girl power and standing up for yourself. I think everyone should read it!

A wonderful exploration of female empowerment and what it means to be in a feminist in a world that doesn't always believe you or care. Excellent for young adults (and adults too!)

What a great "girl power" book about girls working together and supporting each other.

A great book for teens who are exploring feminism and/or are interested in the #metoo movement.
