Red Rage by Brigitte Blobel

Her mom is going crazy, her dad is an abusive alcoholic; its no wonder that Mara has anger management problems. But when she starts to work at a child care center, Mara connects with the kids there and meets a guy named Tim. But one day Mara comes home to find her mom gone. After that, her life starts to spiral down out of control. And when the unspeakable happens, Mara decides she needs to get help and take responsibility for her actions. No matter what the cost.

Red Rage wasn't what I expected it to be. Occasionally hard to follow, I had difficulty understanding what was going on. But by the middle all was flowing smoothly, and I was caught up in the book. The ending was predictable, but it was a good book to read nonetheless. I wouldn't say it was my favorite, but I have read far worse books.
