All the Rage

Available April 14th, 2015


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 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?

praise


“I’m always amazed by the powerful risk of a Courtney Summers’ novel, and in All the Rage she’s reset her own extraordinarily high bar. With a plot that will leave you breathless and characters that will sink into your heart and stay there, it is Summers’ ability to take on a painful subject with both nuance and stinging clarity that is the devastating genius of this narrative. All the Rage is full-on astonishing-and will be critical to future conversations about young adult literature.”
- Adele Griffin, National Book Award Finalist and author of The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone

- Elizabeth Scott, author of Living Dead Girl

“All The Rage is a visceral indictment of rape culture and its far-reaching consequences and Romy is an incredibly strong and compelling character. Her story should be shared with both our daughters and our sons.”
- Rachel Vincent, New York Times bestselling author of The Unbound series and The Stars Never Rise

“The kind of novel that breaks you apart, and doesn’t care if it puts you back together again. It’s a story about hard choices and about the tumult of being a teenager. Sharp writing shot through with a soft vein of sadness. Courtney Summers doesn’t flinch, and neither should you. Read this book.”
- Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds and Under the Empyrean Sky

“Smart, brutal, heartbreaking–Courtney Summers is at her unflinching best.”
