How is it that I have never heard of the Mock Trial Competition! We don't have it in NZ but I am still amazed that I knew nothing about this incredibly cool activity. When I was at school I would have lived and breathed a club like this. I have even mentioned it to a teacher at the school I work at and we are contemplating how we can make this happen. Mock Trial fan-girling aside.

I loved this book. It has a large eclectic cast of women and in my opinion the author struck a perfect balance between the wonderful voices. I laughed a lot during the knitting political activist group scenes. I mean seriously, knitting female genitalia and mailing them to people who express views that stop equality and inclusion in our society. Gold! Absolute gold! I read a lot about how needle activists have been around for a long time. Again, another very cool thing to learn more about. I might have to dust off my grandmother's knitting needles! Knitting activist fan-girling aside.

I totally recommend this quirky book with it's angry but endearing cast of women to anyone who loves reading books about female empowerment and love. The dialogue is quick and witty and I loved the feminist and LGBTQIA issues the book tackles with a strong clear voice.

Well written although the sub plot involving the judge fell flat. Was the end result his revenge against their protesting? Left me wondering...

I loved the idea of a knitting club where the girls can knit out their frustrations along with fighting for what they believe in. The mock trial storyline was a great way to promote girl power and standing up for what you believe in.

Where to begin? There’s nothing I hate more than disliking a book that has so much potential, but oh well. This book was so so so basic. I like the message of the book and the themes of feminism, but that alone can’t make a book good. There needs to be more to a book than just its themes and messages. The characters were never really fleshed out they all felt like background characters except for the main two POVs and their characters just seems so interchangeable, that having them both felt unnecessary. Hence why I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. There was nothing special about the writing. And the plot left a lot to be desired. So while the book had a good message and themes of feminism that was not enough to save the book from being a simply uninteresting read.… (més)
