All the Rage by Courtney Summers (Macmillan Children's Books, 28 January 2016)
Courtney Summers is incredible. Her writing is incisive, powerful, startling. The only other book I've read of hers is her debut, CRACKED UP TO BE (published in 2008), which I also enjoyed, but her writing has come a long way since then. ALL THE RAGE is sickeningly honest, and that's obviously meant as a compliment to Summers. I don't know how she does it. How she carves the truth onto every page of fiction.
Romy Grey was raped by Kellan Turner, one of the sheriff's sons. No one believes her, because everyone knows she wanted him. She's lost her best friend, Penny, the most popular girl in school. They all bully her now and call her a liar and a slut and worse. She finds a job out of town where no one will know about what happened to her, and it's there that she meets Leon. Leon likes her, and she likes him back, but nothing can be so simple as that anymore, and it's a struggle to keep him separate and distant from everything else in her life. But when Penny goes missing after the biggest party of the year and Romy wakes up on the side of the road with no memory of the night before, things get even more complicated and Romy finds it increasingly difficult to keep her life from unravelling further.
