Review In One Word : Magnificent.
I’ve started reading Moxie 2 months ago, I took a lot of time reading it, the same time I usually take to read Non-Fiction books. Not because it was boring, But it was important for me, crucial even, to take my time understanding, connecting and reflecting on every word, scene and character.
Moxie for me wasn’t just a novel I read for entertainment, it discussed a topic that I’m deeply passionate about.
Feminism, equality and women rights.
The way Mathieu talked about these deep , complicated and important issues , was just so realistic . Unfortunately , I’ve connected with Vivian and her friends easily , because simply Jennifer Mathieu talked in this novel about our real world , some people are judgmental and clueless .
Actually , We are all like Viv , Lucy and Emma , We always want to fight injustice , we always want to demand and ask for our rights , but we don’t know how and sometimes don’t have the courage .
The character development in this story is really impressive , Vivian transformation was inspiring and admirable .
This Is The Type of books I want my future kids to read , This is how we should educate and raise the next generation , Teaching them that Humans are equal , Women Empowerment is Important , Refusing to stay quiet when other are suffering from injustice , Standing for each other , supporting and acceptance .
Jennifer Mathieu with her engaging and beautiful writing style , With her unapologetically honest and powerful thoughts , reached masterfully to all of us through this incredible novel .
Highly. Highly. Highly Recommended.
” Maybe. But It’s not like there aren’t going to be girls left behind after I leave. I didn’t do Moxie For Me. I did It for Girls. “
” 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.”
