An INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

An INSTANT INDIE BESTSELLER!

"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.

Searing. Riveting. Beautiful. All My Rage takes the reader on an unforgettable journey into the heart of love. Exploring the painful truths of hidden traumas and the crush of broken dreams, Sabaa Tahir shows us the healing, redemptive power of forgiveness, of hope, of connection in her stunning contemporary debut.\" —Samira Ahmed, New York Times bestselling author of Internment

“We all know Sabaa Tahir is a master at creating epic fantasy worlds filled with terrifying, imaginary monsters. Here, Sabaa turns her considerable talent and skill to the real—but no less terrifying—monsters that dwell in the human heart. In richly evocative prose and with characters so well crafted I'm sure I know them, All My Rage takes a clear-eyed look at the ways in which we hurt and heal each other. It's a gorgeous meditation on grief and love and the possibilities each of us have for redemption. This book will stay with me for a long time to come.” —Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sun Is Also a Star

“This is not the Sabaa Tahir you know…but it’s the Sabaa Tahir you NEED to know.  All My Rage is a gorgeous, star-crossed story about the costs of the American Dream and the way unexpected routes appear when you need them most.  I read this in a single day.” - Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Two Ways 

Editor's Pick

A new genre for an old favorite
I am a big fan of Sabaa Tahir and her YA series An Ember in the Ashes. Tahir created an incredible fantasy world full of violence and secrecy that sucked you in and held you tight through four epic novels. When I heard that Tahir had written a new tale I was expecting a new world to explore, but I was somewhat startled to learn that it was our world she was tackling. All My Rage is a contemporary YA novel that spans generations and continents and explores the intertwining nature of pain and love in relationships. While An Ember in the Ashes had incredible world-building, it was Tahir’s ability to craft characters that was truly mesmerizing. I have no doubt that I will get similarly swept away by the characters in All My Rage and the three performers—Deepti Gupta, Kamran R. Khan, and Kausar Mohammed—who give voice to them. —Katie O., Audible Editor

Sabaa Tahir NEVER disappoints!

I wish she had TONS of books to read but the ones she has, I LOVE! She is an incredible writer. Her characters are deep, her descriptions of things are intricate in just the right amount. Read ALL her books but I’ll warn you, when you’ve read or listened to them all, you’ll be bummed they are over!!

Full of sweetness and sorrow; sadness, trauma, rage and love

I was not sure what to expect. The voice of the teens is so well done I felt like I was a voyeur hearing private thoughts not meant for me. I got caught up in the characters and found myself heavy with their emotions. I enjoyed the characters and the actors who read their thoughts.

Absolutely captivating!

From the very beginning to the end, this book had me completely taken in. The content is heavy and was surprising, but the story was so well written I couldn’t stop listening!! The voices and performances were great and kept me involved. As the mom of a teenager, I don’t know that I would approve due to the content and triggering effects, but for a more mature teenager and older…would recommend in a heartbeat! When it ended, I wanted more!
This is my first book read by this author, but I will most definitely pick up more. Very talented indeed.

A powerful meditation on forgiveness

While told from three different points of view, the narrative is seamless and easy to follow. I was hooked from the start. However, aspects of the performance don’t do justice to Tahir’s great work. I found the performance for Noor’s character overwrought. Every line is delivered in an agonized, shaking, breathy tone that makes her feel like a one-dimensional caricature of a trauma victim rather than the complex, powerful character she was written to be. The performance for her rival classmate’s character is utterly unbearable; I found myself listening to that character’s parts at 3x speed just to get through. Luckily, the quality of the story compensates for these (to me) minor annoyances.

A beautiful story

All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir is an emotionally beautiful story of tragedies, hardships, rage, and through all of that, never losing hope. Tahir does an amazing job at writing characters who make mistakes because they are only human. The performance by Deepti Gupta, Kamran R. Khan, and Kausar Mohammed was awesome. They made the story immersive, and brought out the raw emotions of the characters.
