Sisters Athena and Helen could not be more different. Helen’s pro-life beliefs make her a much better fit for their Louisiana Catholic high school than Athena’s feminism. But that all changes when word starts to spread that Helen got an abortion last summer. Not only does she face endless ridicule from her classmates, but she might also get expelled. Despite their contrasting views, Athena, Helen and their friends must work together to find a way to convince their fellow students 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. Set amidst the feminist movement of the ‘90s, this timely novel is full of tenderness, hope, and enduring female friendships. Ages 14 and up.
