#Metoo and You by Halley Bondy - ESSENTIAL

#Metoo and You: everything you need to know about consent, boundaries, and More by Halley Bondy
, 190 pages. 9781541581555 

Language: G (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13 (types of sexual violence mentioned several times) 



Bondy writes very clearly and honestly about consent - what it should like, doesn’t look like, and situations actual people have found themselves in. She gives examples of sexual harassment and sexual abuse and talks through ways anyone can/should proceed in these situations. 

 I wish this book had been around when my children were young, I would have bought this for them and read through it with them. It would have been supremely embarrassing for all concerned, but worth it. So if you have a tween or teenager, read this and share it with them. As for being in a school library, I wouldn’t want a student to pick this up randomly - it is a lot to take in. Do they need access to it - definitely. But your teachers and counselors definitely need this in their personal arsenal.
