Synopses & Reviews
"Full of big ideas, big heart, and big poetry, with a positive, activist message." -- Booklist (starred review)
Listen up: You're about to get rocked by the fiercest, baddest all-girl hip-hop crew in the Twin Cities -- or at least in the wealthy, white, Bible-thumping suburb of Holyhill, Minnesota. Our heroine, Jewish lesbian lyricist Esme Rockett (aka MC Ferocious), freaks out her Christian high school -- and falls in love -- in this righteously funny and totally tender YA debut. Exciting talent Laura Goode lays down a snappy, provocative, and heartfelt novel about discovering the rhythm of your own truth.
