All My Rage | Sabaa Tahir
39 posts | 28 read | 29 to read
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sabaa Tahir comes a brilliant, unforgettable, and heart-wrenching contemporary YA novel about family and forgiveness, love and loss, in a sweeping story that crosses generations and continents. Final cover to be revealed! 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 Cloud's 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.

This review is written by 15 year old Trish, who absolutely loved it and thinks Noor and Misbah are great female characters. Despite the crap they had to deal with.
Adult Trish would like to say these teenagers made some bad decisions and is that really the appropriate ending!
Overall, a good read 😁 with some great music.

I mostly enjoyed this YA story about two Muslim HS students living in California. The book started out very strong but towards the end it petered out a bit. Teens Noor & Salahudin are childhood friends but now they are on the outs until a tragedy brings them back together only leading to new trouble. Audio narration was excellent. #52Books23 #OneOfTheSevenDeadlySins would work for other prompts as well 😍#Booked2023 #QuietYA

There‘s a lot going on in this YA book. It‘s engaging, plot twists and turns, likeable characters who make some mistakes, and mostly believable reactions. There‘s a few flaws, but my teenage daughter would love this book, she would see strong female characters, and that‘s what makes this book receive a good recommendation.

All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir is a beautiful and meaningful story about Salahudin and Noor. They are young high school students who are facing unthinkable circumstances. Though they often make the wrong choices, they must always deal with the consequences. They are sympathetic characters who captured my heart & had me rooting for them. This is a novel that teaches empathy & understanding with being a bit difficult to read at first but well worth it.

One of the best books of 2022! Great YA realistic fiction from a queen of YA fantasy! Sabaa Tahir had me rooting for her teenage characters even while they made huge mistakes. She captures emotion and difficult situations (loving someone w/addiction, past trauma shaping lives, racism) with honesty, compassion. Her biography at the end shows how much of herself she put into her two MCs. 💗

Karisa Music plays a major role too. Found a playlist of all the songs mentioned in the book: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0lYm8GWVR8f67nfhTseYRu?si=dSzEEPGaSlebY6C-oeZX... 1mo

This was riveting. I was certainly enraged by all the injustices and sorrows Salahudin, Noor, and Misbah experienced, and I loved that the storyline didn't follow the path I expected. Definitely worth a read. #yalit

I loved this book. It felt like Tahir was getting into the the rhythm of her writing in the first few chapters ( maybe I was trying to get the hang of her writing 🤔)… but once it clicked, the novel was flawless. The story is mainly about Misbah, Salahudin, and Noor. From Pakistan, Misbah moves to America as a young bride. Soon she gives birth to her son Salahudin, and their lives cross paths with Noor. Several harsh themes, but simply beautiful.

A beautiful read with memorable characters that will leave me thinking about them for days. This book deals with grief, friendship, alcoholism, abuse and even love. All my rage deals with more issues but it is so hard to name them all. Great job Sabaa Tahir with writing this story!!! A+

I want to rave about this book but where to start?! It's heartbreaking and beautiful. With raw, authentic storytelling this book deals with a lot of trauma (illness, death, addiction, abuse, bullying, racism) but allows room for love and hope. Sabaa Tahir uses alternating POVs of Misnah (then), Noor and Salahudin (now) and layers of place, food, and music woven around the characters and their stories. Very well done. This is YA at its best.

I'm in a slump and I hate it.

Not just reading but also crocheting and playing the kalimba—2 other things I like doing in my free time. Over the past 2 weeks, I've started 2 books but haven't gotten past 50 pages with each.

Regardless, I still visit the bookstore every week and today I got new books!

lumbricuslibri Excited to read Last Night at the Telegraph Club. I liked Ash and Huntress.

Of course, excited to read All My Rage, too. Read An Ember in the Ashes when it came out but never got to read the rest of the series— but soon!

Sabaa Tahir's Ember in the Ashes series is one of my favorites, so I was eager to read her next novel and more so intrigued that the genre was Contemporary. She made the transition of genres flawlessly. The characters and teens were incredibly raw and authentic to me. Their experiences were gritty and messy. The prose inserted throughout was stunning and I was on an emotional rollercoaster the entire time.

4/5 ⭐

What an amazing and powerful book. We follow the POV of 3 characters. Misbah, Sal's mother, Sal and Noor. We learn about they're life. Bullying, sickness, death, addiction, abuse, sexual abuse and what a person is willing to do in a situation of crisis.
This story will make you think. I wanted to hug each character. An important story that needs to be read.

I‘m sure this will be an #unpopularopinion, but I thought the first half of this book was an overwrought, melodramatic mess and I nearly bailed on it. The second half is terrific, which makes the first half that much more disappointing. Also, the single past timeline is poorly worked in and only seems present to reveal a detail about one of the main characters. This one really felt like it needed to be reworked to me.

This book was a treat! Knowing Tahir from her Ember in the Ashes series, I was unsure how to feel about a book that was such a departure, but she does not disappoint. The tale this book tells is a difficult one, full of hardships, poor choices and betrayal; but also of love, loyalty and forgiveness. Just like in life, I was rooting for the characters while acknowledging their faults. Misbah, Noor and Salahudin will stay with me for a long time.

This was some fabulously emotional YA - well written, well paced, and heartbreaking for all three POVs. This should be a television series stat. Follows two teenage best friends who are a little in love with each other — their own secrets and traumas, and a matriarch who risks everything for them both.

I did find that I could relate to many of the hard-hitting aspects of this novel. Not all, of course, but I felt for the characters, regardless of how familiar the circumstances were. I especially loved Misbah‘s chapters & I think Tahir‘s execution with this particular character was brilliantly done, circling me back to the beginning when I‘d felt so little; where I now suddenly felt so much.
