When Emily Lindin was eleven years old, she was branded a "slut" by her classmates. For the next few years of her life, she was bullied at school, after school, and online. At the time, Emily didn't feel comfortable confiding in anyone-but she did keep a diary. UnSlut &nbsppresents this diary alongside comments from the adult Emily of today. Together, these two sets of reflections-one from the past, one from the present-shed light on the&nbspincreasingly&nbspimportant issues of sexual bullying and slut shaming.&nbsp
Emily Lindin founded The UnSlut Project in April 2013. A Harvard graduate and a teen suicide prevention activist, Emily has spoken out against slut shaming and online harassment on ABC News, CNN, NPR, and more. Her documentary film,  Slut, releases in fall 2015. She lives in Southern California.

Editorial Reviews

Raw, illuminating, and frequently painful" -Refinery 29 " [I]t's crucial to see present-day Lindin speak out for her past self and, in turn, speak up for young people reading her book."- Bitch Magazine "[B]oth heart-wrenching and '90s-nostalgic" - Bustle "UnSlut can be found in the young adult section, where it belongs-not because the book isn't a worthwhile read for adults (it is) but because preteens and teens need to be educated on the reality of social, emotional, and sexual trauma while they're in the thick of it."- Baltimore City Paper "[A] powerful and timely study for adults and their daughters or for counselors to use in groups."- VOYA "[A] sometimes tender, sometimes painful look at the stigmas that surround girls growing up in modern society."- Booklist "[F]ounder of an advocacy program The UnSlut Project, Lindin's analysis of her younger self definitely adds valuable context, levity, and keen insight into a number of different issues. "- Kirkus Reviews " UnSlut takes a stand against sexual bullying."- Publishers Weekly "Every young person and everyone who works with young people, I think this should be required reading for them. I think it's going to be a game changer." - Emily Crowe Odyssey books shop on WAMC's the Roundtable "Lindin shared her story to reassure other girls suffering from sexual bullying that they're not alone and this time will pass and their lives will get better. Definitely a message that needs to be heard."- Write On Sisters "Powerful"- Viva La Feminista "An abslote must-read for any young girl, parent of a teen, or school counselor." - NY Journal of Books "
