5. The Knockout

The Knockout by Sajni Patel is about a teenage girl named Kareena Thakkar who’s a rising star in Muay Thai. The story follows Kareena as she navigates through life. I think the fact that she’s doing Muay Thai is so cool!

    These all sound like great books! Know my Name sounds like such a powerful read and I’ve wanting to read it for a while 👀

    1. Thank you! And yes, I totally agree. I’d love to hear your thoughts if you do end up reading it! 😀


  3. This is an amazing list! Another book I’d recommend would be Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu (I think that’s how you spell her last name?). It deals with sexual harassment and is really empowering since it’s about teenage girls standing up against boys who have been sexually harassing people in their school in which the boys are sort of at the top of the heirarchy.
