You Too?: 25 Voices Share their #MeToo Stories
Author(s): edited by Janet Gurtler
A timely and heartfelt collection of essays inspired by the #MeToo movement, edited by acclaimed 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 serve as a reminder to readers that they, too, have a voice worthy of being heard--and that only by listening and working together can we create change.
RITA Finalist Janet Gurtler is the author of acclaimed YA fiction, including I'm Not Her and 16 Things I Thought Were True, which was a Junior Library Guild Selection and chosen as a Best Books for Teens by the Canadian Children's Book Centre. Janet lives in Calgary, Alberta, near the Canadian Rocky Mountains, with her husband and son and a fat Chihuahua named Bruce who refuses to eat dog food.
