A YALSA's Teens Top Ten 2018 book "With a story that's equal parts heart and instruction manual, Mathieu has captured the movement of a generation--warts and all--and shone a light forward for the next one." --E. K. Johnston, #1 New York Times Bestseller author of Exit Pursued By a Bear "Vivian Carter and Moxie are strong and smart and so, so inspiring. She is my new hero and this is my new favorite book. I'm proud to be a Moxie girl." --Jennifer Niven, New York Times-bestselling author of All the Bright Places and Holding Up the Universe "From its soul-deep girl friendships to its swoony love story to its smart, gutsy heroine, Moxie is a ferocious joy. I could feel my heart--and my courage--getting bigger every time I turned the page." --Katie Cotugno, New York Times-bestselling author of 99 Days and How to Love "Moxie is an anthem, a how-to guide, and that best friend who says, 'You matter, too!'" --Sherri L. Smith, author of Pasadena and Flygirl "Like the addictive riff of a punk rock song, Moxie will pull you in, inspire you, and kick you back out into the world with a burning desire to change it. Read this. Now." --Jenny Torres Sanchez, author of Because of the Sun "An invaluable revelation." --Booklist, starred review "This novel is full of wit, insight, and moxie. . . . Highly recommended for all teens, but especially those who would enjoy realistic coming-of-age fiction with female empowerment." --School Library Journal, starred review "Satisfying and moving." --Publishers Weekly
