Ready to talk a little YA today? A little Horsemen of the Apocalypse? Read on for guest reviewer Lynn Rush’s take on Rage, the new book by Jackie Morse Kessler, and check out the contest at the end of the post!
ABOUT THE BOOK: 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 pain: control. 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.
Thanks, Lynn! Kessler’s first Apocalypse book, Hunger, dealt with eating disorders, with a portion of the proceeds going to the National Eating Disorders Association. A portion of the proceeds from Rage will be donated to the organization called To Write Love On Her Arms.
