This fun and quick read also has a great message for young girls. The Reinvention of Moxie Roosevelt tackles the issue of wanting to be someone different than who you have always been. Lying and chameleon-like behavior (changing who you are depending on who you are with) results in near catastrophe, but is turned into a positive with humility and courage. Girls at the boarding school are all trying to be different or better versions of themselves, and what they all learn is that who they really are is the best version there is. This story is told with humor and wit, and friendship is stressed and valued. Family is supportive, though secondary, as characters live away from home. Relationships with teachers are positive ones. Tween girls will thoroughly enjoy Moxie and her trials and tribulations at boarding school, and will cheer for her when she triumphs in the end.
