Critic Reviews

'Welcome to Consent is a fierce, funny, celebratory and extremely supportive young people's guide to saying no, saying yes and being "the boss of your body."' – Emilie Coulter, freelance writer and editor

'While one might think consent is a fairly straightforward proposition ("Yes means yes and no means no--right?"), the authors make clear from the get-go that there's a lot more nuance and complexity to consent than meets the eye.

'Most will see the immense value in honest, direct talk that prepares young people of all types for normal, complicated human interactions. Lucky is the young person who consents to read this book.' – Emilie Coulter, freelance writer and editor
