We had a small but mighty book group meeting on Tuesday! Some questions from the group:

What was it like reading this book/graphic novel in the midst of the #metoo movement?

What other books about consent/rape culture/sexual assault would you recommend for students at different ages?

What resources do you use to address this issue in your classroom?

Please add to the discussion here!

Holy Cow! Amal Unbound is an amazing book! Aisha Saeed was inspired by Malala's story, and this book is set in Pakistan, but the story is unique. Here is my review:

Simply fabulous- this is a winner of a middle grades novel! Amal loves learning and dreams of one day being a teacher. When her mother gives birth to her 5th daughter, she stays home to help her with household chores. The break from school should be temporary, but fiesty Amal ticks of the local landowner and becomes an indentured servant in his home. This would be an excellent read aloud for any class studying the Global Goals, access to education, or contemporary slavery.

Wanted to recommend this book to the group. Here is my review:

Dashka Slater brings empathy and compassion to this investigation of two teenagers: agender Sasha, the victim of a crime, and Richard, the perpetrator of the crime. Slater looks beyond binary as she explores complicated identities and social constructs: male/female, good/evil, privileged/disadvantaged. By digging into the lives of the people impacted by this crime, past and future, Slater shines a light on our humanity. It is unfortunate that our justice system cannot do the same.
