We remember how the #Me Too movement caught the world’s focus in 2017, when several high profile celebrities went public with incidents of sexual harassment that they had encountered from time to time. Since then, this social media driven movement has gone from strength to strength.
But #Me Too is not only about the celebrities or workplace harassment. Many youngsters also face it in schools or in public places. A novel based on this concept has caught the imagination of many, especially those who have their own stories to unburden to the world.
Maybe He Just Likes You (Author- Barbara Dee) is a heart wrenching story of the covert sexual harassments faced by the seventh grader Milla, and the path to redemption of her pride.

When I hit my teens, I was a bookworm with a major crisis: my local library had hardly any YA books!
