"All My Rage is a love story, a tragedy and an infectious teenage fever dream about what home means when you feel you don’t fit in." — New York Times Book Review
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sabaa Tahir comes a brilliant, unforgettable, and heart-wrenching contemporary novel about family and forgiveness, love and loss, in a sweeping story that crosses generations and continents.
Lahore, Pakistan. Then.
Misbah is a dreamer and storyteller, newly married to Toufiq in an arranged match. After their young life is shaken by tragedy, they come to the United States and open the Clouds' Rest Inn Motel, hoping for a new start.
Juniper, California. Now.
Salahudin and Noor are more than best friends; they are family. Growing up as outcasts in the small desert town of Juniper, California, they understand each other the way no one else does. Until The Fight, which destroys their bond with the swift fury of a star exploding.
Now, Sal scrambles to run the family motel as his mother Misbah’s health fails and his grieving father loses himself to alcoholism. Noor, meanwhile, walks a harrowing tightrope: working at her wrathful uncle’s liquor store while hiding the fact that she’s applying to college so she can escape him—and Juniper—forever.
When Sal’s attempts to save the motel spiral out of control, he and Noor must ask themselves what friendship is worth—and what it takes to defeat the monsters in their pasts and the ones in their midst.
From one of today’s most cherished and bestselling young adult authors comes a breathtaking novel of young love, old regrets, and forgiveness—one that’s both tragic and poignant in its tender ferocity.
All My Tage
Such a beautiful well woven story.
It started out slow and I was ready to shelve it, but I continued. I was captured and enthralled! The last pages had love filled tears coursing down my face, a very rare occurrence!
It was soo good
First of all, I want to say that I read this book in a day, aside from the first look. This book wasn’t always very easy to read, but it was very powerful. Honestly, it made me feel for immigrants and Muslims in a way I’ve never felt before. This book pointed out so many problems within our nation including racism against Muslim people, domestic abuse, drug dealing, and injustice in the court system.
Sabaa Tahir’s writing style made the book feel even more emotional than it already was. All throughout the book, I could almost feel Noor, Sal, and Misbah’s pain and it was heartbreaking. Sal was an especially interesting character to me because while he made so bad choices, he also made some very selfless choices that weren’t easy to make. Noor is honestly such an amazing character. She is so incredibly strong and hardworking. I look up to her character so much. Overall, I think the plot of this book is great and I would definitely recommend you to read this book.
