"You know all the ways you can kill a girl? God, there are so many.”
This was a rough book to read, because of how viscerally realistic and well written it is. It's a story that examines what it means to be a girl, the social and personal politics of having a body, especially when you are a rape survivor. It's a story about how mentally and physically dangerous girlhood actually is. All the Rage focuses on Romy's agency, on her survival, and on every angry unfair hollowed out thought she has. It shies away from nothing, and pulls no punches.
A furious and important book. It's not very much like Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak, but they definitely exist as part of the same conversation, so I'd recommend that one to anyone looking for something similar.
