How do you kill a god? 

As her father’s chosen heir, eighteen-year-old Rasmira has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. But when her coming-of-age trial is sabotaged and she fails the test, her father banishes her to the monster-filled wilderness with an impossible quest: To win back her honor, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year or die trying.

My Thoughts:

I thought this was such a fun action packed adventure read. I really loved the setting of this book and how this book was structure. I really loved the topics that were addressed in this novel. I loved the dynamics between the characters so much. This book reminded a lot of the books like the hunger games but especially The tiger queen. I found this book to fun read. I thought the second half of the book had some pacing issues. But I am dying to read her next read soon!

Summary!!!

High school students embark on a crash course of friendship, female empowerment, and women’s health issues in Lily Williams and Karen Schneemann’s graphic novel Go With the Flow.

Good friends help you go with the flow.
Best friends help you start a revolution.

Sophomores Abby, Brit, Christine, and Sasha are fed up. Hazelton High never has enough tampons. Or pads. Or adults who will listen. 

Sick of an administration that puts football before female health, the girls confront a world that shrugs―or worse, squirms―at the thought of a menstruation revolution. They band together to make a change. It’s no easy task, especially while grappling with everything from crushes to trig to JV track but they have each other’s backs. That is, until one of the girls goes rogue, testing the limits of their friendship and pushing the friends to question the power of their own voices.

Now they must learn to work together to raise each other up. But how to you stand your ground while raising bloody hell?

My Thoughts:

I adored this read. I think periods and discussions about the various issues never occur in YA novels and I really enjoyed this book. I thought this book addressed so many issues like periods but also about friendships and also activism for younger kids. I think his book tackled so many issues that never are chatted about. I really grew to love the girls that I met in this book and this book made me happy and also rather emotional. Such a important read!
