Loved this story of a young woman in a small Texas town who's inspired by the Riot Grrrrl movement of the 90s.

I absolutely loved this YA novel about teenage Texan girls finding their feminist voices through social action in their high school.

In the last 3 years of picking up YA books this is the only one I've enjoyed.

I work with teens as a librarian. Teens in our area are fantastic, smart, focussed, high-achievers. I love 'em, but sometimes I wonder where their fire is. During these times especially I wonder where the punk rock is? Where's the outrage, or more importantly, where are the artistic expressions of outrage.

When I saw this book on our shelves, the references to Riot Grrrls got my attention. Was someone actually writing about some badasses? Was someone writing about teens doing more than developing their personal brand? Something more than kids in a boarding school saving the world?

The answer is yes. This book is highly relevant to our times. I'd recommend it highly. The truth is there are lots of outraged and engaged teens, all over the place, but they express it all a bit differently than we did back in the 1980s, which is fine. This book helped me understand that.
