Statistically, teens make up the demographic most affected by rape, sexual assault, and sexual abuse, and yet the topic is shrouded by stigma and silence. Things We Haven't Said seeks to make a change by providing teens with stories that engage, questions for further discussion, and resources that could save a life. These twenty stories - coming from a diverse but uniformly impressive group of women - open the door to new conversations on one of the hardest topics we will ever have to address. But it's a conversation that we need to start having now.

“Things We Haven’t Said” Sexual Violence Survivors Speak Out, is a new, groundbreaking teen anthology, part resource, part anthology, written by survivors of childhood and adolescent abuse and violence.

More:

“There are days when I am less stardust than sawdust, less survivor than victim, but that does not mean that the reclamation of my own body is any less eternal.”–Jane Cochrane

“How to describe the feeling of not being believed? It is the feeling of disappearing.”–Stephanie Oakes

“I used to want to hurt you, to break you, to give you the sort of nightmares I still have so many years later.”–Melissa Marr

“It’s so easy to say you’ll fight when it’s not happening to you. But then it was happening to me. And I locked up. My bones had all linked together and I was still.”–Bryson McCrone

Things We Haven’t Said is a powerful collection of poems, essays, letters, vignettes and interviews written by a diverse group of impressive adults who survived sexual violence as children and adolescents. Structured to incorporate creative writing to engage the reader and informative interviews to dig for context, this anthology is a valuable resource of hope, grit and honest conversation that will help teens tackle the topic of sexual violence, upend stigma and maintain hope for a better future.

Net proceeds of this work go to charity.

--Amber Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The Way I Used to Be and The Last to Let Go

"Challenging, heartbreaking and ultimately healing...a beautiful firsthand account from rape survivors about the impact of sexual assault on their lives."
--Christa Desir, author of Fault Line, Bleed Like Me, and Other Broken Things
