Johanna Lynch is a senior in high school. Life is stressful for her because both of her parents have died, and her sister doesn't talk to her much after Johanna confessed that she is a lesbian. Everyday, Johanna admires Reeve Hartt, but she would never speak to her. Reeve is also a lesbian, but Johanna never thought she would have a chance with her. While Johanna is tutoring a boy with autism named Robbie Inouye, she finds out that he is Reeve's brother. One day Johanna finally gets the courage to talk to Reeve and from then on, they hit it off. Johanna learns personal things about Reeve and never gives up on her. They fall in love quickly. Shortly after finding out about Reeve's difficult home life, Reeve's brother Robbie and her mom are killed by her abusive uncle. Then, Reeve goes to live with Johanna, but Johanna's sister has trouble accepting it. In the end, things turn around, but the ending will surprise you.

Rage was one of the best books I've ever read. I could picture everything that Julie Anne Peters said. I was able to understand the life of an abusive love and the difficulties of being different. I had trouble putting the book down. I was absorbed with everything that happened. I learned how different life is for people that aren't as fortunate as me. Sometimes i think that I have it rough, but what I deal with is nothing compared to what Reeve Hartt went through. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the struggles of lesbian teens, and abusive relationships. The ending shocked me because I really didn't expect that to happen. If you want to read this book, I advise that you are at least 16.

This book has inappropriate language in it. It talks about drugs, sex, and abuse.

SECOND REVIEW


Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
"Rage: A Love Story" by Julie Anne Peters is a shocking book about lesbians. One lesbian girls fantasizes about another. When they finally do interact, she turns her dream girl gay. However, abuse begins to form in their relationship. Peters also elaborates on each girl's family and their troubles therein. In the end, both girls come to an agreement with their relationship and uncover startling truths about each other.

This book is sexual to the point of disgust. Young readers, especially girls, do not need to read about raunchy girl-on-girl details. Readers interested in learning more about domestic abuse are better off picking up another book that focuses more on physical and psychological abuse, not sinful fantasies and graphic abuse. Overall, for a hit or miss, this book is a miss when it comes to teen relationships suitable for young ones to read about.

Graphic lesbian details
