The Baby-Sitters Club meets The First Rule Of Punk in this fierce novel about sisterhood, friendship, and standing up for what’s right. When the Red Club—an after-school, student-run club for middle school girls to shamelessly ask their weirdest questions about periods and puberty—gets shut down after anonymous complaints of it being too inappropriate, Riley and her friends must investigate the real reasons why their club was taken away. And they just might start a feminist movement along the way.
How can the end of a relationship feel like anything but a gaping wound? Brute will show you how. Visceral, angry, and honest. This is a journey to the heart of loss and back out again; stronger, fiercer. Highly propulsive, these poems tell a story. But much more than recalling a simple breakup, Emily Skaja explores gender and sexuality, and the strength and wildness in femininity and womanhood. Her poems will slice you open to your very soul and then stitch you back together, and you will thank her for it.
