I’m back again with yet another book review. I know that I am unintentionally turning this into a book blog, but at least you have consistent posts from me for a little bit right?!? And…at least you know that I’m working on at least one of resolutions rather consistently this year…;)
Let’s get back to the topic at hand. In case you haven’t noticed is about the book Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu. This was a YA read chosen for the May or June Creating & Co book club read. I know I’m behind, but at least for now I’m at least caught up on that book club reads I think…
In the book we meet Vivian Carter, a junior at EastRockport High, who finally after years of dealing with the same small town attitude to guys and football gets feed up and decides to fight back in the only way that she knows how. She takes inspiration from her mother’s Riot Grrrl ‘zines and begins one of her own distributing anonymously throughout the school. Before she knows it, the ‘zines have created a movement all their own which ends up leading to a revolution at the school.
I’m not even going to apologize for somewhat spoiling the book because once you even read the jacket you know that there was only 2 ways that this was going to end, Revolution or sadness. I probably would have warned you if this was a tear jerker. If you aren’t already familiar with the Feminist Revolution this is definitely a good introduction to some materials that you should read. If you are familiar with the revolution this is good book to make you want to continue the fight for other girls/women. I know that this book probably has some basis in real life events since things like this seem all too common throughout America.
Let me know if you have read this book and what you thought. If you have any recommendations for books I should read this year, let me know 🙂 I’ll also be participating in the Creating&Co RIP Readathon in October,so they’ll be a ton more reviews coming soon!
I’ll see you soon with another post.
