I’m finishing up the copy editing of a YA novel about the power of women to rise up, speak against, and defend against sexual assault.
There are scenes of groping, voyeurism, and an older man making unwanted advances toward a teenage girl. Though nothing graphic is described, I’ve still had nightmares.
Currently, there is no content warning in the front of the book, and this has me wondering:
Do you feel that publishers and authors have a responsibility to readers to make a book’s content clear through trigger warnings?
