Franklin Staff Recommends:
For older kids, I recommend “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas. This is such an empowering book because it breaks down the stereotypes of females, as well as black members of our society. The main character, Starr, is trying to navigate two vastly different societies. Starr gets empowered by her voice and what she is able to express using her true emotions and thoughts. It is definitely meant for students that can handle more mature topics.
For mature middle school and up I would absolutely recommend, Break The Good Girl Myth by Majo Molfino. In her debut book, Majo explores the myths and stereotypes women are unconsciously programmed with from birth. She also helps to identify each individuals unique myth they must combat. Through journal prompts and exercises designed for self exploration, Majo empowers and instills an amazing confidence in all who read this book. While the subject might be heavy, the language that major uses is warm and friendly and the book is easy to follow.
