Review; Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu

A while ago I read the YA novel Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu and today I'll post my review of the book.

Description from Goodreads
Moxie girls fight back!

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with her small-town Texas high school that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes and hallway harassment. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv’s mom was a punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ’90s, so 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. Pretty soon Viv is forging friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, and she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.

My Thoughts on the Book
Moxie was a a kick-ass YA novel about feminism and fighting back. There might be some tendencies of white feminism at times, but it's still a good read as it actually talkes about intersectional feminism. Another good thing about the book is that it deals with rape culture head on. The characters are well-written as well and has some development to them throughout the book. The book itself might have some flaws in regards of the storytelling aspect, as it falls a bit flat when not dealing with the feminist aspect.

Overall it's a good read though and I would recommend people to pick it up.

For those who wants to see a movie adaption of it, feel free to check out the Netflix version.
