Theme

Jillian Larkin is the author of Vixen. Jillian created the book vixen because she was always interested in flappers. Jillian states on her website "I have always been fascinated with the twenties. In fact, I grew up watching the Thoroughly Modern Millie movie with Julie Andrews so many times that my mother banned it from the house. It’s an appealing time when women—and teens—really began to come into their own. By outlawing a regular part of life—alcohol—rebellion was suddenly more acceptable than it had ever been before. The 1920’s were a wonderful time for women, who began to fight for their independence and freedom—both in their style and what they expect for themselves and their futures. -

Music notes represent the different speakeasies like the Green Mill that was used in Vixen. The Martini is used also for speakeasies and how everyone would drink and party all day and all night long.http://www.randomhouse.com/teens/flappers/books/

Conflicts

Throughtout Vixen there are many different man vs. man conflicts. Gloria lies to her best friend Lorriane about where she was and what she was doing. Clara then is falling in love with Marcus.

The overall message in Vixen would be, to be yourself and dont change yourself for anyone. Gloria changes everything about her the way she looks, dresses, and acts just because its what someone else did and she felt out of place.
