Synopsis

"The footsteps stop but the birds are still singing, singing about a girl who wakes up on a dirt road and doesn't know what happened to her the night before..."

Romy Grey wears her lipstick like armour, ever since the night she was raped by Kellan Turner, the sheriff's son.

Romy refuses to be a victim, but speaking up has cost her everything. No one wants to believe Kellan is not the golden boy they thought he was, and Romy has given up trying to make herself heard.

But when another girl goes missing after a party, Romy must decide whether the cost of her silence might be more than she can bear.

In the media

I personally rejoice when an abused, angry girl uses her fury to bite back. When Romy in Courtney Summers' All the Rage uses her frustration to fight for the truth

Summers does not glamourise the topic of rape and sexual assault and does not soften what she is trying to say, but instead writes it so it's loud and clear. All the Rage will make you uncomfortable in parts, and it will cause shock and it will enlighten you.

one of the most brutal and unashamed books about rape that I've ever read, so I especially love that it's for a YA audience
