YA @ Books Inc proudly presents debut author Natalie Walton in celebration of her bold and honest novel, Revenge of the Sluts--a story centered on seven teenage victims of an anonymous, intimate photo leak who join forces with their prestigious private school’s top reporter to take down the person responsible. Natalie will be joined in conversation by fellow author and health/sex ed expert Shafia Zaloom, author of Sex, Teens & Everything in Between: The New and Necessary Conversations Today's Teenagers Need to Have about Consent, Sexual Harassment, Healthy Relationships, Love, and More. (Ages 14+)


About Revenge of the SlutsDouble standards are about to get singled out. In this stunning debut, author Natalie Walton tackles privacy and relationships in the digital age.
As lead reporter for The Warrior Weekly, Eden has covered her fair share of stories at St. Joseph Secondary. And when intimate pictures of six female students are anonymously emailed to the entire school, Eden is determined to get to the bottom of it.
In tracking down leads, Eden is shocked to discover not everyone agrees the students are victims. Some people feel the girls brought it on themselves. Even worse, the school's administration seems more concerned about protecting its reputation than its students.
With the anonymous sender threatening more emails, Eden finds an unlikely ally: the six young women themselves. Banding together to find the perpetrator, the tables are about to be turned. The Slut Squad is fighting back!
 
About Sex, Teens, & Everthing In BetweenThe only sex education book you need to start a conversation with your kids about sexual harassment, consent, #metoo, and more
Being a teen in today's world can be hard. Raising a healthy, aware, and sex-positive teen can be even more of a challenge. When it comes to sexuality in adolescence, harassment, autonomy, advice, and consent, it's crucial that teens be able to ask hard questions about how to take care of themselves, make decisions that reflect their values, and stay safe. Enter: Sex, Teens, and Everything in Between, by veteran teen sex educator and mother of three Shafia Zaloom, which acts as a conversation starter to discuss a wide variety of sex-related topics with your teens, including:
  • How to get and give consent
  • What it means to have "good" sex
  • How to help prevent sexual harassment and assault
  • How to stay safe in difficult situations
  • The legal consequences of sexual harassment and assault, and what to do if a teen experiences assault or is accused of it
  • Stories from survivors of sexual assault
Talking to your child about sex and realizing it's perfectly normal is step one. Having proactive and engaged discussions about all that comes along with teen sex is step two, and that's where this book is here to help. Approachable, engaging, and with real-life scenarios and discussion questions in every chapter, Sex, Teens, and Everything in Between is a must-have resource that gives parents and educators the tools they need to have meaningful conversations with teens about what sex can and should be.
