This beautiful story follows Jasmine and Chelsea, who are sick of the way women are treated even at their progressive NYC high school, so they decide to start a Women’s Rights Club. They post everything online—poems, essays, videos of Chelsea performing her poetry, and Jasmine’s response to the racial macroaggressions she experiences—and soon they go viral. But with such positive support, the club is also targeted by online trolls. When things escalate, the principal shuts the club down. Jasmine and Chelsea will risk everything for their voices—and those of other young women—to be heard.
We’ve got 5 copies of this beautiful new YA to give away, plus a gorgeous bookmark, so you’ll never lose your place. To enter, follow the instructions in the tweet below.
