By the author of Moxie , a powerful feminist novel that deals with slut-shaming, told through the perspectives of four small-town teens, about how everyone has a motive to bring—and keep—a teen girl down. Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party. When Healy High star quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons dies in a car crash, it was because he was sexting with Alice. Ask anybody. Rumor has it Alice Franklin is a slut.
I am normally not a big consumer of issue books, as we know, because my deep love lies with fantasy and science fiction, but occasionally I will dabble in the genre for something I think is particularly worthy. Told from a number of perspectives, the book revolves around what one character, Alice, did at a party one night — and the sequence of events that followed. Alice is a slut. A whore. The girl who slept with two guys on the same night and then killed the star quarterback — well, at least indirectly. But did she, really? Especially since we should know better not only from our own lives, but from the documented truths that we see around us.
