September Teen Book Club: Moxie
MOXIE GIRLS FIGHT BACK!
Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with an administration at her 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.

All participants will need to secure their own copy of the book. Used, borrowed, or electronic versions are all acceptable.
Between reading the book and participating in supplemental activities, participants can expect to spend between 1 and 3 hours a week on class activities. Those who choose to do the final project can expect to spend 4-5 additional hours on that project.
The book club discussion boards and live discussion are extemporaneous and therefore somewhat unpredictable. Facilitators will do their best to ensure positive, supportive interactions.
Families are encouraged to check reviews and content notes for each individual book in the book club to ensure it is a good fit for them.
