Romy Grey; hated by most, loved by few. Romy lives in a world where a teenage girl has no voice or opinion in any matter, men rule the town, adults don't listen to children for the better, and the authorities of the town are extremely one-sided for their benefit only. Romy tries to put last night together and find out what really happens to save her life and voice the truth; her truth.
All The Rage by Courtney Summers is a moving novel about a teenage girl who is trying to share her voice in the world. The characters are very complex and you create such real genuine emotions to them. The main character Romy is such a strong girl for all she has, and is going through in her life. Romy's experience with rape is so brutal and heartbreaking, and shows readers what it's like for victims long after the incident, how it haunts them the rest of their lives. A few of the things I loved about this book is how strong Romy is, she really inspired me. Another thing is also the relationships Romy develops thought the book (especially the her relationship with Leon). All the Rage is very moving, I felt upset, sad, and angry at times. A very powerful novel that will stay with you for a very long time, I definitely recommend this book to all young adults out there so that more people will be more aware of the issues covered in this book and hopefully in the near future we can prevent some of the issues from happening.
