All My Rage is a heart-wrenching, ruthless story about high-school best friends Salahuddin and Noor who face devastating family trials as they navigate the desert terrain of racism and displacement in their everyday lives in Juniper, California. This evocative portrait of grief and adversity will keep you hooked until the last triumphant page.
This edition was published in August 2022 by ATOM an imprint of Little, Brown Book Group.
After Salahuddin’s mother, Misbah, becomes severely ill, her tragic death leaves Salahuddin to take sole charge of the Cloud’s Rest Inn motel she worked so hard to build, whilst caring for his alcoholic father, even if by criminal means. Meanwhile Noor dreams of escaping Juniper, hoping to get into college so she can be free of her abusive, self-hating uncle who resents and berates her for embracing her Pakistani heritage.
More than just the framing of anguish and trauma, All My Rage is also a story of promise, of channelling rage and injustice into overcoming adversity and this made the story so appealing, as we want to see these characters flourish and surmount difficult obstacles.
