About the Book

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!

Review

I know you know that this was one of those books that I took one look at, giggled, and said yep, this is a me book. And it was! I was absolutely delighted by this book and just couldn’t put it down. And it’s just a really empowering book, which is something I can’t say no to. I love a book that just takes something absolutely terrible, and scarily prevalent in our society, and gives the power back to the women who aren’t afraid to take it.

This is a book that I feel (god I’m also feeling old right now) will resonate with *teens these days.* Gasp, I am no longer a teen but it feels like yesterday. ANYWAYS, what I’m getting at is that this book reads like a young adult book should read. It’s a little juvenile and a little mature and just the right combination to fit the teenage mind. And honestly the topic of this book is just where it really excels. It opens up the conversations that we should be and need to be having (adults and teens alike in all honesty). Revenge porn and slutshaming is such a fear for many people and too many also have to deal with the repercussions of someone doing just that to them.

I really enjoyed this read and the characters within. There were just so many aspects that fit what women go through, deal with, and fear. And I loved the empowering narrative behind it.
