Sexual assault is a major issue in America today. 1 in 6 women will be sexually assaulted, as well as 1 in 36 men. Children are especially at risk, with 1 in 4 girls, and 1 in 6 boys being assaulted. Unfortunately, very little is being said about this epidemic-level problem. Sexual Assault: The Ultimate Teen Guide seeks to break that silence. This work combines up to date research and statistics, current cultural references, and the personal stories of survivors of sexual assault. This work is an excellent resource for teens, for survivors of sexual assault, and for those who work with survivors.
