In this debut middle-grade girl-power friendship story, an eighth grader starts a podcast to protest the unfair dress code enforcement at her middle school and sparks a rebellion. Molly Frost is FED UP... ..Because Olivia was yelled at for wearing a tank top. ..Because Liza got dress coded and Molly didn't, even though they were wearing the exact same outfit. ..Because when Jessica was pulled over by the principal and missed a math quiz, her teacher gave her an F. ..Because it's impossible to find shorts that are longer than her fingertips. ..Because girls' bodies are not a distraction. ..Because middle school is hard enough...And so Molly starts a podcast where girls can tell their stories, and before long, her small rebellion swells into a revolution. Because now the girls are standing up for what's right, and they're not backing down.
