Missy didn’t mean
to cut so deep. But after the party where she was humiliated in front of
practically everyone in school, who could blame her for wanting some
comfort? Sure, most people don’t find comfort in the touch of a razor
blade, but Missy always was . . . different.
That’s why she was
chosen to become one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War. Now
Missy wields a new kind of blade—a big, brutal sword that can cut down
anyone and anything in her path. But it’s with this weapon in her hand
that Missy learns something that could help her triumph over her own
A unique approach to the topic of self-mutilation, Rage is the story of a young woman who discovers her own power and refuses to be defeated by the world.
Hunger was honest and moving, and Rage sounds like it's going to be just as honest about the harm teens inflict on themselves in search of perfection.
