First Chapter Friday

Or in this case, the dedication is the hook!

Yesterday, one of my senior Contemporary Lit students mentioned her frustration at the portrayal of “feminism” she encountered in another class. From the textbook to classroom discussions that disparaged and even wrongly defined the term. (She’s actually so angered, she’s composing a letter to the textbook author. Which is epic on so many levels). So, I think this book by Jen Mathieu is JUST what we need!

From the opening dedication, to the very last word on the last page, I love #moxie! It was one of my Top 10 books for High School in my #yalit seminars.

But now I’m off to buy more copies because I definitely have some students who must read it immediately!
