All the Rage by Courtney Summers ~ My Review

All the Rage by Courtney Summers 

Publication Date: April 14th 2015 
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin 
Pages: 321 
Received: E-copy from publisher via NetGalley 
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

All the Rage was not the book for me. I’ve read a few books like this and enjoyed them, but this one was just too realistic for me. I felt a lot of emotions reading this story; nervous, sad, confused, but I couldn’t stop reading it. I had to find out what happens and hoped for the best. While some things were resolved, others were not. 

We see the story from Romy’s point-of-view, and she is a mess. Before the story opens, she accused a boy of raping her, which nobody believes. Now she is bullied at school. She’s confused, angry and depressed: all reasonable emotions considering what's she's going through. And because the story is told from Romy’s POV it is confusing and messed up as she is; you don’t know exactly what’s happening because she doesn’t. 

I have a huge question about why isn’t Romy getting any counseling? If she cries rape and that proves to be false, wouldn’t that be a red flag that maybe something's off with Romy? And if she did get raped then she definitely needs help. Either way, she would need help.

If you like stories about bullying, teen/date rape, and a missing girl, then All the Rage is the book for you, but it wasn't for me. Because real life can be hard enough, I want to read something with a better resolve.

Any thoughts? 


  1. Hmm, sounds like a story that sticks with a person. Sometimes I like these and sometimes I don't feel like being challenged with the 'too reals'.

    1. Yes, I know what you mean, Sophia Rose. This one just didn't work for me. How confused this girl was did come through in the writing, so I guess that's good! haha! ;)
