Rage: A Love Story

Written by Julies Anne Peters

**This book is coming to the BCCHS Library on January 11, 2011.

Rage is a story about a young lesbian, Johanna Finch, who is very attracted to a girl named Reeve Hartt. Reeve Hartt is a mysterious girl, and that’s one of the things that drives Johanna crazy. Eventually the two become a couple and Johanna is head over heels in love with Reeve. Reeve does not understand why Johanna loves her so much; she has never understood love because her past has been full of child abuse. Throughout the story, Reeve physically abuses Johanna. These two characters undergo many problems, but somehow they make it work.

I loved this book because the connection between the two characters was so strong, and it made the story seem as if everything was going to be okay, but then there would be a change in events. It always had something that made me want to keep reading. The book was like an adventure of a girl who is blinded by love and is willing to travel any distance to stay with her love.

This book is suitable for a teenage audience. It’s also great for anyone looking for a great love story to read. I would give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars because I don’t like love stories, and this book had me glued to its pages. Rage was recommended to me by a friend, and now I recommend it to everyone who wants to be entertained.
