"Moxie is sweet, funny, and fierce. Read this and then join the fight."—Amy Poehler

An unlikely teenager starts a feminist revolution at a small-town Texan high school in the new novel from Jennifer Mathieu, author of The Truth About Alice.

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.

Moxie is a book about high school life that will make you wanna riot!

Una chica está en boca de todos. ¿La causa? Un accidente mortal del que se le acusa desde aquella noche loca.

La historia de Alice es de todos, menos suya.

Todo mundo sabe que Alice se acostó con dos chicos en una fiesta. ¿Pero sabías que le estaba enviando un mensaje de texto cachondo a Brandon cuando su coche se estrelló? Es cierto. Pregúntale a quien quieras.

Considerada por Amazon como una de las mejores novelas de 2014. Ganadora del Children's Choice Book Awards' Teen Choice en la categoría de "Autor Nuevo".

Hay una cosa que he aprendido acerca de las personas: no se vuelven ruines y nefastas de la noche a la mañana. No es la naturaleza humana. Pero si les das el tiempo suficiente, entonces sí pueden hacer las cosas más desoladoras del mundo...

Se rumora que Alice Franklin es una zorra. Está escrito en los baños de Healy High para que lo vea todo el mundo. Y después de que Brandon Fitzsimmons, el mariscal de campo estrella, muere en un accidente de automóvil, los rumores comienzan a salirse de control.

La verdad acerca de lo que Alice hizo en la fiesta de Elaine es lo que el pueblo entero quisiera desentrañar y es distinta según quién la diga. Varios estudiantes de Healy High cuentan todo lo que saben, pero ¿qué pasó exactamente? A fin de cuentas, sólo hay una persona a quién preguntarle: Alice misma.

La crítica ha opinado:

"Una mirada directa y sin complejos sobre el escándalo; una voz prometedora" -Booklist-

"Provocador, pero reflexivo acercamiento a la dinámica humana" -BCCB-
