Kirkus’ review of Jennifer Mathieu’s MOXIE makes me want to buy it all the more.

We need books that support and *believe* rape survivors, and that fight back against misogyny and rape culture. And teen characters taking things into their own hands is part of what #YAlit books are supposed to do – have main characters who take their own actions. YA fiction is FICTION – and MOXIE sounds empowering. As a rape and torture survivor, as a feminist, as a woman who stands up against rape culture and misogyny, I can’t wait to read it!

Read the review for yourself and see. MOXIE is on my to-buy list.

If you want to reserve a copy of MOXIE, too, find it on and Barnes and Noble in the US, and and Indigo in Canada. And don’t forget about your local indie bookstore who will order it in for you!
