About the Book:
Reminiscent of Lisa Lutz’s The Swallows but aimed at the YA reader. In it, Revenge of the Sluts is 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. They form the “Slut Squad”, reclaiming the label their classmates so viciously use to tear them down. This group of brave young women stand up for themselves, and each other, even when faced with critics who claim the girls were “asking for it” judging by their "behavior", and a school administration that’s more concerned with protecting its reputation than helping the girls get justice. As gripping as it is inspiring with a “ripped from the headlines” feel, Revenge of the Sluts is the perfect read for the next generation of women who will likely face some form of sexual harassment in their lifetime, helping them feel less isolated and motivating them to make their voices heard.
