Review : All the Rage

All the Rage by Courtney Summers

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mystery, Realistic Fiction, Abuse, Thriller,
Goodreads: Click
Pages : 321
Published April 14th 2015 by St. Martin's Griffin 


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?


This can be a tough subject for you readers just a warning...

Romy was rape and kept what happend silenced. Shes not the type of person who people would believe and is bullied so it wouldn't matter if she told, who would believe her? Especially when it could be the sheriffs son, who is well known and every much liked. When a girl goes missing it seems to be tied with the night Romy was assaulted things start to get a little tricky.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. Getting to know different aspects of how rape victims deal with the aftermath, its always an eye opener to learning more even if this book is fiction. I thought that this book was interesting, and liked how the book ended. This was a fast paced book and there was loads of drama, mystery, and suspense to keep the readers wanting more.I thought that this book was pretty great and enjoyed it.
