Read Moxie Online Free - An unlikely teenager starts a feminist revolution at a small-town Texan high school in the new novel from Jennifer Matheiu, author of The Truth About Alice.
MOXIE GIRLS FIGHT BACK!
Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with a school administration at her small-town Texas 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!

I’m going to be very transparent in the fact that I am never going to stop obsessing over this book. So be prepared, especially in the coming months of Moxie’s release, I ain’t shutting up about it.
I absolutely LOVED this book, way more than I anticipated. I originally wasn’t sure when I’d get to...

In light of Kirkus' gross review of this, an added paragraph. I do not at all agree that this book “drives away male allies.” Given the content of the book Kirkus was referring to, I am of the opinion that this is a really gross opinion. If you think “calling out a person who's victim-blaming a r...

This book was totally amazing! I was in tears near the end with all of the girls standing up together. They were there for each other, girls from all walks of life to stand up against those that try to make them something they are not, for trying to push them into corners to go along with things...

Not long ago, I wrote an essay on the importance of feminism to various groups of people today and presented it to the class. The response was overwhelmingly positive and sparked different discussions.
The teacher was surprised. He looked at me and said, ‘‘This is how every oral presentation shou...

"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 w...

I want to make it clear that I LOVED THIS BOOK SO SO MUCH.
Moxie is about Vivian, who is sick of the sexist shit that goes down at her high school and feeling inspired by her mum's 90's Riot Grrrl feminist zines, decides to make her own feminist zine to fight against the patriarchy an...

This is my new favourite book. Full of feminism, girls supporting girls and taking action against injustice. Everything about this is just so powerful! It makes me want to stand up and cheer and fight back just like the Riot Grrrls would.
I loved how Viv didn't feel any ownership over the Moxie...

Really all it is, is girls supporting each other and wanting to be treated like human beings in a world that's finding ways to tell them they're not.
Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault
If I could just stand up and applaud this book. IT IS AMAZING. In th...

3.75 stars (maybe 3.5 if I decide to weigh the issue I speak about more heavily)
I enjoyed this, and I wish there'd been more books like this when I was a teen!
My favorite parts were the shoutout to Roxane Gay (woohoo!), the depiction of the small town, and the portrayal of the different ways the...
