Author: Laci Green
About the book: Green is a sex educator and a YouTuber who has written a book about sex.
I received an advanced reader’s edition from HarperCollins Canada.
First impressions: I liked the introduction. Green does a good job giving readers an idea of what to expect.
Summary: The author covers anatomy, consent, periods, etc. Green answers frequently asked questions. She provides facts and stats. There are diagrams in addition to images. She does a good job dispelling myths and misconceptions too.
“We don’t need to have another person to make ourselves whole.”
Writing: The writing is descriptive, and Green’s voice shines. I’ve never watched her YouTube videos, but even on paper, she has the ability to connect with young readers.
The author addresses important issues in an informative manner. It’s a great resource on its own. There’s also a list of resources at the back of the book, and Green cites all her sources as well.
Final thoughts: The book is more female-focused, but males would benefit from reading it too.
