Book Review: A book that can be used with teens to talk about sexual assault and consent.

Book Review

A short overview of this book

Take It as a Compliment book by Maria Stoian is a collection of short stories of sexual assault and can be used to start conversations about sexual consent.

This book is ‘pretty heavy’ as it tells stories of sexual assault or where consent was not given. Probably not a book to give to your teen to ready by themselves. It is a book that needs to have conversations wrapped around it eg what happened, why did it happen, what could you do if you were in that situation or a friend was, etc. You could read a story together, and then talk about it. Watch the video for ideas!

It is a fantastic book for sex educators as they could use it in workshops and classes.
