Publisher's Summary

In this debut middle-grade girl-power friendship story, perfect for fans of Moxie, an eighth grader starts a podcast to protest the unfair dress code enforcement at her middle school and sparks a rebellion.

Molly Frost is fed up.... 

Because Olivia was yelled at for wearing a tank top. 

Because Liza got dress coded and Molly didn't, even though they were wearing the exact same outfit. 

Because when Jessica was pulled over by the principal and missed a math quiz, her teacher gave her an F. 

Because it's impossible to find shorts that are longer than her fingertips. 

Because girls' bodies are not a distraction. 

Because middle school is hard enough.

And so Molly starts a podcast where girls can tell their stories, and before long, her small rebellion swells into a revolution. Because now the girls are standing up for what's right, and they're not backing down.

My new favorite book

This book is so good I do not even know where to start. The story is a strong, uplifting story about fighting for equality. The characters are instantly likable, and the book is SO relatable for ANY middle schooler that feels self-conscience about how they look. The reading performance was excellent, too! I recommend this to middle school kids everywhere.

An AMAZING book

This audiobook was probably one of the most inspirational books I’ve heard or read in a while. I loved how they didn’t stop till they got the dress code removed. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great audiobook.

This is probably the most relatable book ever

I love this book it is probably the most relatable book I know because a girl gets her period in class and and put her hoodie around her waist. And the character’s voice on the podcast episodes are really pretty and probably Mach their personality but it is a good book overall I hope you read this book.

Enlightening and fantastic

This story is great expression of peoples rights, courage and REAL life. Molly’s devotion to her friends, her family and her thoughts and feelings on the unfair rules show her personality and strength that we all have. The plot-line is impeccable and worth listing to.

I loved the Idea of young female activists! The story inspires and motivates young girls to speak out against injustices.
