Thanks to Bloomsbury and NetGalley for the Advance Review CopyI m going against the tide of other reviews here but this book was just too much It almost reads as a parody of social justice discourse The novel follows the stories of Chelsea and Jasmine two intersectional teenage feminists living in New York City These two young women must exist in a state of constant mental exhaustion as they find issue with almost every single thing in the world around them At their school every student has to join a social justice club and even the Science class is officially the Science of Social Justice I m no expert on the American education system but I m guessing that public schools are bound to some kind of local or State standards Not this school Forget Covalent Bonds or the Theory of Relativity they are going to study the Use of Human Subjects in Medical Research and Climate Change and Racism instead Good luck on the SATs I guessThe villain is a pretty white girl The issues are shoehorned in with all the subtlety of a 6ft tall Peacock playing the Tuba It s simply too much for one book to try and cover this many issues without it coming across as unrealistic and frankly absurd I actually felt drained reading this book As a proud intersectional feminist who cares passionately about euity and social justice I didn t feel inspired I felt like these important issues ended up as a bit of a joke The poetry was uite good though Really sorry just not for me Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament here but this book was just too much It almost reads as a parody of social justice discourse The novel follows the stories of Chelsea and Jasmine two intersectional teenage feminists living in New York City These two young women must exist in a state of constant mental exhaustion as they find issue with almost every single thing in the world around them At their school every student Вторжение В Украину Хроника Российской Агрессии has to join a social justice club and even the Science class is officially the Science of Social Justice I m no expert on the American education system but I m guessing that public schools are bound to some kind of local or State standards Not this school Forget Covalent Bonds or the Theory of Relativity they are going to study the Use of Human Subjects in Medical Research and Climate Change and Racism instead Good luck on the SATs I guessThe villain is a pretty white girl The issues are shoehorned in with all the subtlety of a 6ft tall Peacock playing the Tuba It s simply too much for one book to try and cover this many issues without it coming across as unrealistic and frankly absurd I actually felt drained reading this book As a proud intersectional feminist who cares passionately about euity and social justice I didn t feel inspired I felt like these important issues ended up as a bit of a joke The poetry was uite good though Really sorry just not for me

Instagram Twitter Facebook Pinterest WATCH US RISE is a young adult book that explores feminism and intersectionality in a way that breaks down core concepts and key figures for younger readers Jasmine is a black plus sized young woman who is interested in poetry and theater Chelsea is a thin white feminist who also likes poetry and wants to be an activist When the two of them start chafing in their clubs at their liberal arts high school due to their ideals and personal philosophies they decide to start their own club a club for feminists replete with a blog where they can speak out about injustice inspiration and calls to actionThere was so much about this book that was great and there were a few things that weren t First I want to focus on what was great WATCH US RISE really deep dives into feminism highlighting problems that women face everyday overtly and covertly Whether it s the lack of plus sized options in a clothing store or an authority figure brushing off a sexual harassment claim with that hated word allegedly Watson and Hagan bring up a lot of issues that teenage girls face on the regularJasmine was an especially lovely character I respected her so much In addition to starting the club she s also spending so much energy on her father who is dying of cancer She had great comments about blackness black stereotypes being a bigger girl in a society that caters to and promotes the visibility of smaller women and all sorts of other things that were very important I also liked that she wasn t afraid to call her friend Chelsea out on her hypocrisy when Chelsea is constantly dragging her to small size clothing stores and then forgetting to order plus sizes when they make their club t shirts and saying that oh well Jasmine can just wear a men s shirt It was so refreshing to see Chelsea get told off and a perfect example of not letting your friends get away with toxic behaviorWhich leads me to my biggest gripe with this book Chelsea Chelsea is the epitome of everything that is wrong with white feminism if it s not a T shirt slogan or an internet hashtag she has no interest in it One of the key moments that really made me not like her is when she s saying that they need a social justice club in the very beginning and Jasmine tells her that there is one It s called Justice By the Numbers or something like that and it uses statistics and data to break down things like redlining and food desert Chelsea has no interest because she doesn t like math she wants people to listen to her to speak up and be heard As a white ally to people of color it s really important not to co opt the stories of the people you re trying to help and I was disgusted when Chelsea wrote a poem inspired by a Harlem museum and then a kwansaba for Jasmine her black friend That for me almost bordered on cultural appropriation Everything was about herShe s also a hypocrite in other ways Despite all her feminist rhetoric about calling men out and not putting down other women she gets involved with a guy who has a girlfriend I found that really disgusting Just goes to show the power of cognitive dissonance I guess that someone could talk the talk and still drag their heels when it comes to walking the walkTowards the end she also refers to herself as a womyn an alternative spelling of women to remove the word men it is a word rooted in trans exclusionary radical feminism TERF There are feminists who actively work to keep non biological women out of women s spaces who still consider trans women as men and exclude them from the movement and the term womyn is sometimes associated with people who think that way That seemed like a poor oversight a mistake that someone might make who wasn t very familiar with feminism or its roots and combined with Chelsea s rather off putting angry Tumblr feminist attitude she ended up sounding like a gross stereotype from a misogynistic Reddit thread and less like you know an aspirational figureI know I came down hard on this book but I think it s important to be critical even about books that you liked And I did like this book a lot I finished it in a single day and apart from some of the poetry and most of the parts about Chelsea I thought WATCH US RISE had a mostly good message Feminism is important and not all feminists practice their feminism the same or with eual good faith Jasmine and Chelsea both come from very different walks of life and even though privilege and white feminism aren t really discussed as much as they should have been I get why maybe the authors didn t want to come across as too heavy handed and therefore didn t give Chelsea the serious dressing down that she deserved But for young girls who might be new to feminism and have uestions about how to start their own movements WATCH US RISE may prove an invaluable resource Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 35 stars Shoot em Up Maisie McGrane Mystery #3
