"All the Rage" is a timely and turbulent portrait of one young woman coping with the aftermath of sexual assault, in a town where telling the truth has made her a pariah. It'll be awhile yet before you can add it to your library, but you can put it on your radar right now, with this exclusive reveal of the haunting cover.
Interest piqued? Here's what you need to know about "All the Rage":
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.
At a moment when nationwide awareness of rape culture has reached an all-time high, Summers' book will be an important contribution to the conversation, as well as a gripping story about a girl finding the courage to challenge the world that has failed her.
