Ontario YA author Courtney Summers has taken over social media yet again after having her latest title, All the Rage, picked up by Tumblr’s reblog book club earlier this month. The author, who is known for taking on topics of sexual assault and gender dynamics in her books, asked readers to use the hashtag #ToTheGirls on April 14 (the day of All the Rage’s release) to offer encouragement to women around the world.
Summers said on her Tumblr, “Take the opportunity to tell the girls you know – and the ones you don’t – that they are seen, heard and loved. Share advice. Be encouraging. Tell us about or thank the girls in your life who have made a difference in yours.”
The hashtag trended on Twitter and resulted in coverage from various news outlets.
