Welcome to day two of ALL THE RAGE APRIL! Today I have some lovely Twitter peeps on the blog talking about why they want to read All the Rage! Here's the jacket copy in case you haven't read it yet.
The sheriff’s son, Kellan Turner, is not the golden boy everyone thinks he is, and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. Because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town, the truth about him has cost her everything—friends, family, and her community. Branded a liar and bullied relentlessly by a group of kids she used to hang out with, Romy’s only refuge is the diner where she works outside of town. No one knows her name or her past there; she can finally be anonymous. But when a girl with ties to both Romy and Kellan goes missing after a party, and news of him assaulting another girl in a town close by gets out, Romy must decide whether she wants to fight or carry the burden of knowing more girls could get hurt if she doesn’t speak up. Nobody believed her the first time—and they certainly won’t now — but the cost of her silence might be more than she can bear.
With a shocking conclusion and writing that will absolutely knock you out, All the Rage examines the shame and silence inflicted upon young women after an act of sexual violence, forcing us to ask ourselves: In a culture that refuses to protect its young girls, how can they survive? (Summary from Goodreads)
There's so many reasons to be excited about this book, guys. It's beautifully written, it's gritty and intense, and it tackles such a difficult subject with honesty. I can't wait for you guys to read it! But, don't just listen to me. A couple week's back, I tweeted out asking why people wanted to read All the Rage and got some lovely responses! Here are why some other readers are excited about the book!
"I am looking forward to reading ALL THE RAGE because Courtney Summers is a master at writing relevant issues. Ever since reading SOME GIRLS ARE, I have been enamored. She touched on a subject very close to home. Courtney Summers is not afraid to broach the hard subjects in a manor that is respectful and informative. I am very excited to see what she has planned for ALL THE RAGE." - Elissa, @_Ellie_G_
"Because Courtney Summers' books are awesome, and never disappoint!" - Anna, @princess2293
"Because I have read and enjoyed the other books she has written." - Tanya, @tanyalc28
"How about because WE NEED BOOKS THAT SUPPORT GIRLS IN AWFUL SITUATIONS WHEN OUR STUPID SOCIETY IGNORES THEM. Go Courtney Summers!" - Jess, @MsJessR
"Courtney's books take me to the darkest places, but always somehow bring me back again alive" - Rebecca, @ReeCroteau
Thanks everyone for your lovely responses! I can't wait for you guys to read it as well!
