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 book will make you angry but not because of bad writing but because everything depicted init so true that it just made me so mad.

Things I Liked

-Romy: I liked how she was not together, she was angry at her town, scared, had trust issues but even with all the odds stacked against her she was trying to move on with her life and not be defined by her rape.

-The portrayal of Rape culture was perfect, I've lost track of how many time people have said/asked What was she  wearing? Is she sure it happened that way? She probably was asking for it. NO, no one wan't to be forced to do anything, if you wouldn't force someone to wear shoes that don't fit, why would you think it's ok to force someone to have sex? It doesn't matter if he is always a good person, if it's going to ruin his future if he was brave enough to do it he should be brave enough to face the consequences. 
IT'S NEVER THE VICTIMS FAULT. 

Things I didn't like

-The only thing I can say that I didn't like so much was the timeline, it jumped a lot from the "now" and "two weeks later", it got muddled for me sometimes.
