The Book Club Kit for All My Rage provide comprehensive and in-depth resources. The recipe and printable bookmarks were a lovely surprise for my library's Discord book club. A letter from the author is always special and Sabaa Tahir's really emphasized how important this story is to her. The questions allowed the group to dig deep into the discussion of this character driven novel. We all loved the addition of a playlist - music always helps with truly feeling a book's vibes. Overall a very solid book club kit and I look forward to trying out more of them with my group!

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing a copy of book for review.

First of all, yes- I had an ebook sent by Netgalley but I've decided also to listen to parts of it in an audiobook format as I've heard great opinions about that version. I completely agree- the audiobook is amazingly done, I feel like all 3 of the narrators were great and added even more emotions to the story.

Also, an important fact- the book deals with quite a lot of heavy topics, so definitely look up the trigger warnings before deciding to read it.

To be honest, I primarily (and almost exclusively) read fantasy and sci-fi. This was a big step out of my comfort zone and I'm glad I've decided to try it. I almost feel underqualified to talk about this book with how much it has hit me feeling-wise.

We have three main narrations: two for teenagers 'now' and one of one of their parents from some time ago. They were all interesting for me and wove together well.

It's hard for me to even say that I've enjoyed the plot, as I feel that 'enjoyment' isn't a word that would be applicable here. My emotions got hit by a bus with this book, and honestly I couldn't see myself reading books like this one often because all of the feelings. I feel like I have gotten to know these characters really well, hoped with them and felt pain with them. I think that even recalling this book will stir lots of emotions in me for a long time.

I have finished 'All my Rage' in around 1,5 day because I couldn't stop reading.

I recommend this book really much, but I would advise for you to check trigger warnings and be prepared for a heart-wrenching journey.

I LOVE the book club kits, they really help with finding fun tasks to do with your club friends, the discussion questions were amazing in this kit! Also, beautiful bookmarks, I always print them and give them to the book club people, before it was a surprise, now they are waiting for the present hahaha! This time we didn't test the recipes, but they look amazing! Thank you 'We Are Bookish' for that!

This was a great kit to use for my teen book club. I loved that there were discussion questions, and they loved getting the bookmarks. I didn't end up using the recipes, but this is great that it's included.

When it came to this book club kit for All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir, my advise for whoever is hosting the discussion for this book is to look it over before, during, and after reading All My Rage. I personally love it when authors include any content or trigger warnings that might leave an unpleasant feeling in readers' minds. And of course, questions were insightful and not yes/or no questions. They prompt thinking and can bring members closer, especially the two questions suggested by Tahir. And truly do recommend listening to the music Sabaa Tahir curated for her book, especially during planned reading sprints if reading with a classroom or with teens. These activities included are such fun to try with family, and such delicious meals. And something that I really like, especially as a teacher who uses the book club kits to guide discussions for my students is being able to recommend novels for students to read if they enjoyed All My Rage.

This book club kit is every teacher and parent's dream. As a middle school teacher, I could confidently give any question or recommendation to my students without question. I could see myself also incorporating these in my own book club or my students’ book clubs in class.

Downloaded this on a whim after finishing the book and it's actually such a cool companion that left me thinking about the story even more. Loved the extra content like the playlist and recipes too!

This was such a powerful novel from start to finish. The book club kit was one of my fave thus far. I even loved the recipe listed. It a little longer than most over 20 pages and the discussion questions were really good for a great open dialogue.

Thanks to the author and publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to access this Book Club kit. This comprehensive 22 page kit contains discussion questions, recipes, and even cut out bookmarks to print at home LOL. I liked the recommendations of other books at the end.

All My Rage is such an eloquent, powerful novel. The book club kit truly enhances the experience of reading this story with engaging, helpful materials that give it additional depth. I truly recommend downloading this kit if you plan to read All My Age for an upcoming book club. It won't disappoint!

Thank you for the opportunity to view the book club kit. I enjoyed the writer questions and the playlist. As the book was a memoir the discussion questions were personal in nature and opened up room to explore values.

This absolutely brilliant book club kit is wonderful. Acting as a companion guide, there is so much packed in; great question prompts, author information, bookmarks and an excellent playlist too. I think this is fantastic, and so glad I had it ready for reading All My Rage with the 6th form book group. BRILLIANT. Thankyou We are Bookish!

I'm surprised that NG is asking for feedback on the book club kits, but this one is well done! Not sure I have much else to say. I've been excited about Sabaa's work for awhile, so looking forward to diving into the book itself.

I don't know what to say about this book except that it is EXCELLENT! Although there were hard times that the characters had to struggle through, this book seemed like a warm hug to me. It was extremely touching and felt very honest. I just loved this book. The only downside--the book cover! If there's ever a book not to judge by its cover, this is the one. This book cover hasn't grabbed the attention of my teen readers, who tend to be drawn to covers. I appreciate the author's thoughts on the cover; however, I think it's meaning is too abstract for a teen's visual attention when trying to pick out a book to read.
