Top Ten Books Featuring Characters Who Have Moxie

In high school, my theatre teacher required our class to read the play and then watch the film adaptation of Lost in Yonkers. It was a story that stuck with me. So, what’s moxie? Well, I’ll let Uncle Louie explain it.

The characters I selected today are characters who have moxie. They’re spunky. The kids that typically don’t quite fit the mold. They’re a square trying to be forced into a circle cut-out. It just won’t work. They are who they are and they don’t apologize for it.
