£9.99
Pre-order. Despatched on publication 01/10/2019

Synopsis

Can a good person commit a terrible act?







Things We Didn't Talk About When I Was a Girl is Jeannie's story of her friendship with a man that ended in rape when she was nineteen. With the election of Trump and the rise of the #MeToo movement, recurrent nightmares of the incident that plagued her as a girl have returned. As a means of processing her conflicted feelings, she resolves to face her trauma head-on.







Through interviews with the perpetrator - transcripts of which are included in the book - and wide-ranging research, Jeannie's compelling memoir explores how the incident impacted both of their lives, while examining the culture and language surrounding sexual assault and rape. Things We Didn't Talk About When I Was a Girl is a necessary contribution to the #MeToo discussion and a springboard for other women to share their stories.
