Thirty YA books that speak out against sexual harassment/assault

At the BN Teen Blog Dahlia Adler tagged thirty YA books that address sexual harassment and/or assault, including:
All the Rage, by Courtney Summers

In Summers’ unflinching fifth novel, everyone has turned on Romy for accusing the town’s golden boy of rape; there’s only so much one can fight when the criminal is also the son of the sheriff, and everyone thinks you deserve whatever you got. Then one night, Romy wakes up with no memory of the party the night before, and the friend she was with is missing. Now she gets to see what it looks like when a girl is harmed and people actually give a damn, and it also means navigating life without the one old friend who seemed to believe in her. But when she realizes there’s a stronger link between her and the disappearance than she knew, she has to make a choice between standing up and sharing truth no one wants to hear or losing herself completely.
