Cover Crush: Rebel Girls by Elizabeth Keenan

Rebel Girls by Elizabeth Keenan has that jean jacket, feminist, I don’t care attitude, with neon text, that screams this book is set in the early 90’s! AND I love it! I think most will delight in the shouts of smashing the patriarchy, riot grrl punk rock references, and overall theme of girls supporting girls. I proudly proclaim that punk is back, time to learn from your elders, and bring the movement back to the forefront, and read books inspired by the times, like Rebel Girls! Read the an excerpt here.

Rebel Girls is releasing this fall, just in time to inspire your back to school clubs, and remind you to respect the your fellow girls, and join together to beat back sexism. Add Rebel Girls to your TBR for the September 10th release and the subsequent mix-tape party!

If I can find the details of the cover artist or designer I will be trying to share that for each #covercrush! Rebel Girls book cover was designed by Jay Roeder.

It's 1992, and there's a rumor spreading in Baton Rouge...When it comes to being social, Athena Graves is far more comfortable creating a mixtape playlist than she is talking to cute boys--or anyone, for that matter. Plus her staunchly feminist views and love of punk rock aren't exactly mainstream at St. Ann's, her conservative Catholic high school.Then a malicious rumor starts spreading through the halls...a rumor that her popular, pretty, pro-life sister had an abortion over the summer. A rumor that has the power to not only hurt Helen, but possibly see her expelled.Despite their wildly contrasting views, Athena, Helen and their friends must find a way to convince the student body and the administration that it doesn't matter what Helen did or didn't do...even if their riot grrrl protests result in the expulsion of their entire rebel girl gang.

    This is my favorite shade of blue! Love the bright pink too. Now I want a jacket like this for myself.
