From Alexandra Duncan's blog:
Now it's easy to laugh about my book ending up on the slut shelf, but I remember how hurtful that word was to me when I was younger. Someone wrote it on the side of my car once in college for some unknown reason, and it left me in tears. Part of why I wrote Salvage was to let girls know that their worth isn't tied up in their sexuality. Having sex doesn't fundamentally devalue you as a person. It doesn't change the fact that you have amazing things to contribute to the world.
