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.

Critic Reviews

“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 best-selling 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, number one New York Times best-selling author of The Sun Is Also a Star)

“All My Rage is an expert study in all that's tangled within the closest of our relationships - the pain and the love, the ugliness and the beauty, the potential to break and the potential to repair. Painful, powerful, hopeful, and magnificently crafted.” (Randy Ribay, author of Patron Saints of Nothing)

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.

Keep Reading

The book starts off so slow, it took me awhile to really get invested (chapter 30ish). The beginning is imperative to understanding the story line so it is necessary, just slow. However, the storyline excels quickly after 30 and becomes pretty good, in fact I thought it ended too soon/quickly.

Beautiful and sad, but didn’t want it to end

Although this is pitched as a YA novel, it definitely doesn’t feel like one. The stories of 3 narrators are interwoven to come up with a sad, heartbreaking yet beautiful and hopeful tale. The dialogue and characteristics of each person feel real. You come to know and care about the main characters, so much so that you feel like the author has to have been inspired by people she knew. The voice actors did a fantastic job as well. I’ll definitely be putting this one on my “yearly listen” rotation.

Decent story - overboard voice for one character

There was one strong negative that stood out to me here - the female narrator’s voice for the female nemesis. It came off as a completely exaggerated stereotypical valley girl, and it took away from the novel experience. My recommend would be to traditionally read this one versus listen.

So frustrating and worrying in a good way.

A moving story told in three points of view that weave well together. I didn't want it to end. If you get frustrated by their miserable bad luck hold on for there's light at the end of the tunnel.
