About the Book
Title: On the Subject of Unmentionable Things
Author: Julia Walton
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Publishing date: August 23rd, 2022
Content Warning: Doxxing and harassment
A girl rewrites sex education, one viral post at a time, in this fiercely honest and delightfully awkward novel by the award-winning author of Words on Bathroom Walls.
Phoebe Townsend is a rule follower . . . or so everyone thinks. She’s an A student who writes for her small-town school newspaper. But what no one knows is that Phoebe is also Pom—the anonymous teen who’s rewriting sex education on her blog and social media.
Phoebe is not a pervert. No, really. Her unconventional hobby is just a research obsession. And sex should not be a secret. As long as Phoebe stays undercover, she’s sure she’ll fly through junior year unnoticed. . .
That is, until Pom goes viral, courtesy of mayoral candidate Lydia Brookhurst. The former beauty queen labels Phoebe’s work an “assault on morality,” riling up her supporters and calling on Pom to reveal her identity. But Phoebe is not backing down. With her anonymity on the line, is it all worth the fight?
Julia Walton delivers a brutally honest novel about sex, social media, and the courage to pursue truth when misinformation is rife. Who knew truth could be so scandalous?
This was a great sex positive YA Contemporary. I think it’s so important for young people to be aware of their bodies and have good representation of consent and safe sex. I liked the format and felt like the quick pace made for a perfect read.
I loved Words on Bathroom Walls and was excited to see a new release from Julia Walton. I enjoyed the characters, plot, and overall tone of this novel. I picked up the audiobook and had the hardest time putting it down. It was the perfect listen.
I definitely recommend!
