A teen girl on the edge. A rage turned to violence.

Sometimes 15-year-old Mara loses control. She strikes out at people, then runs. Often, she can't recall what she's done. She knows losing control is dangerous, but she also feels that somehow the rage protects her, making her invincible.

Then she meets Tibor, a sweet guy who's not put off by her attitude or her messed-up home life. There's also a teacher at school who sees a better future than Mara's ever imagined for herself. The teacher even gets Mara a volunteer job in a preschool.

But the anger is never far away. The day Mara spots Tibor on his motorcycle with another girl, the rage takes over. Mara tracks the girl down and beats her senseless.

Horrified, Mara finally seeks help for her behavior. But salvation isn't that simple. The injured girl is Tibor's sister. Devastated by the news, but determined to make amends, Mara takes her first steps toward a life free of violence.

Filled with raw emotion and unflinching honesty, Red Rage is a vivid portrait of one teen lost in a vortex of her own violence.

About the Author:

Brigitte Blobel is a journalist and the best-selling author of many young adult novels. She lives in Germany.

Rachel Ward is the translator of Traitor, a young adult novel by Gudrun Pausewang. She lives in England.

Review:

Well-written, dark, and with little hope that Mara's life will change, the book exposes Mara to the reader with a rawness that she would deeply resent. Teens living this life will identify with Mara and her rate and, one hopes, choose a different path. (C.J. Bott VOYA)
