Double standards are about to get singled out.
In this stunning debut, author Natalie Walton tackles privacy and relationships in the digital age.
As a lead reporter for The Warrior Weekly, Eden has covered her fair share of stories at St. Joseph’s High School. And when intimate pictures of seven 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 seven young women themselves. Banding together to find the perpetrator, the tables are about to be turned. The Slut Squad is fighting back!
I love it when a new writing trend happens. Over the years we have seen vampires and werewolves, we have seen pirates, we have even seen limited life books become popular. However, the trend that most excites me, the one that makes me sit up and listen a bit more is the growing trend (that is hopefully here to stay) of girls not allowing themselves to be slut-shamed. It is a brand of feminism which has been around a while but has probably got more traction since the #MeToo movement.
Revenge of the Sluts is a brilliant book that displays this changing attitude and highlights the ever present mysogeny that is still present and that isn’t talked about, discussed, or taught about in schools but novels like Revenge of the Sluts are being placed in young girls hands and showing them that they don’t have to put up with it. They can make a stand and they can be the change. Revenge of the Sluts is brilliant for this reason. It shows people of both genders making a difference and refusing to stand for the outdated beliefs that girls should be allowed to be slut-shamed.
