A timely and heartfelt collection of essays inspired by the #MeToo movement, edited by acclaimed young adult and middle-grade author Janet Gurtler. Featuring Beth Revis, Mackenzi Lee, Ellen Hopkins, Saundra Mitchell, Jennifer Brown, Cheryl Rainfield, and many more.
When #MeToo went viral, Janet Gurtler was among the millions of people who began to reflect on her past experiences. Things she had reluctantly accepted - male classmates groping her at recess, harassment at work - came back to her in startling clarity. She needed teens to know what she had not: that no young person should be subject to sexual assault, or made to feel unsafe, less than, or degraded.
You Too? was born out of that need. By turns thoughtful and explosive, these personal stories encompass a wide range of experiences and will resonate with every listener who has wondered, "Why is this happening to me?" or secretly felt that their own mistreatment or abuse is somehow their fault - it's not. Candid and empowering, You Too? is written for teens, but also an essential resource for the adults in their lives - an urgent, compassionate call to listen and create change.

Varied views were eye-opening!
As a woman, who has experienced sexual harassment and rape, I still had conflicting views of the #metoo movement. While I am all about women empowerment and outing sexual predators, I wondered if we were taking it too far. This book helped me understand how different we all are, how something that may have a life-changing effect on one person, may have little to no effect on another. The point is, we must understand and be aware of how our actions (or words) could affect others...regardless of their sex. We don’t know their struggles, background, or mental state. We must teach our children to be kind, ask questions, respect boundaries, and never assume they know how someone is feeling. Communication, education and compassion are the only ways to tackle this problem!
I highly suggest this book for anyone who “doesn’t get it” or who may be on the fence with this movement! You will no doubt hear at least one story that hits home with you, and the validation of your own feelings allow you to understand others in a totally new way!
I also suggest this book for teens, mothers, fathers, teachers...really, anyone! The more we know, the better the generation that we are teaching will be!
