So much to talk about this book. This has an interview with the author that gives you a little more into the writing process, which is nice for a book as rooted in its environment as this one. Specially helpful if there are some readers who aren't too familiar with the world she's writing about.

I already reviewed All My Rage and I loved it. Now when it comes to the book club kit, I did find it useful and think it’s a great tool to use when discussing the book. I would definitely recommend this to others who host and/or run book clubs. I would love to see more Book Club kits developed for other books.

I would love to interview Sabaa Tahir for Pop-Culturalist.com. Sabaa Tahir is one of my favorite authors and I adore her writing style. Sabaa knows how to write lovable characters and create tension between them.

A group composed of myself and some friends meet monthly to discuss a book that we chose to read. This book club kit helped tremendously when we met up. There were many good discussion questions and interviews that we could talk about to keep us on task throughout our meeting!

super helpful book club kit for tahir's first contemporary novel 'all my rage' - i read this book a few days ago and still haven't made up my mind about it. it was nothing like i expected. i'm a huge fan of sabaa tahirs and after reading the an ember in the ashes quartet my expectations were quite high. i wouldn't say that all my rage disappointed me but it was so different from sabaa tahirs other work that i needed some time to get into it. this book kit definitely makes it easier to comprehend sabaa's motives on writing this story. i appreciated her careful and profound way of approaching difficult themes surrounding love, loss, abuse and more. the interview in here just reinforces my initial feeling. i also really liked the playlist and the recipes that are included in this book kit!

I requested this because I bought this book and was considering it as my book club selection. I downloaded the kit and it was great. Full of interviews and questions and background information. I really liked it and look forward to sharing some of the info.

Great book club kit about All My Rage. I loved the book and the questions helped me discuss it with friends who also read it! I love the addition of the author's letter and interview. The playlist is also a nice addition since Noor loves music so much. I hope I can try the recipes some time as well! Maybe while listening to the playlist :)

Now I'll go back to hug All My Rage while eating chocolate because this book destroyed me (in the best way)!

This book club kit was so fun! I loved that it included recipes reflected in the novel since the cuisine mentioned wasn't one familiar to me and I'm eager to try them out this week. The playlist was amazing as well, especially since music was an integral part in the novel for the character Noor. The bookmarks were cute, but I would've preferred instructions for how to print double sided instead of the folding technique. The author note, Q&A, and Discussion Questions were all thought provoking and added to the reading experience. I liked especially that the author suggested some Discussion Questions herself.

As someone who used to moderate an in-person book club (pre-pandemic) I can attest to the fact that moderating the book discussion is the most trying part of the process. Either you find yourself with a book that comes with its own kit included, or you're forced to comb back through hundreds of pages looking for suitable content.

With the former, you run the risk of posing deeply subjective questions about symbolism and thematic elements that many readers may overlook when trying to read on a deadline.

With the latter, the primary struggle is keeping the content engaging. Especially for the DNFs (Did-Not-Finishers) of the group. And every group I've participated in has at least one.

The nice thing about the Book Club Kit for All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir is that it gives you multiple directions to choose from to maximize engagement. You have your standard author interview and reader questions (with plenty to choose from) AS WELL AS a playlist and recipes.

17 years in the making, it is clear that All My Rage is Sabaa Tahir's passion project right down to the very last. If you are looking to reengage your book club or start a new one I would suggest using this kit as a template for all of your future meets.

[Thank you NetGalley and We Are Bookish for a free copy of this book club kit in exchange for an honest review!]

An awesome tool to use for book club. I particularly like the addition of a song playlist. My group was small but we found that the questions allowed us to reflect back on the book and think more critically about it.

What a beautifully made and thorough book club kit. Includes an author interview, recipes, discussion questions and a playlist for All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir. Great for YA librarians, teachers, or teen book clubs who want some help planning an event for the book, structuring discussion, and more.

I thought this was a very helpful kit! I loved all the different components to it. It was great to read a letter from the author and have discussion questions, but my favorite parts were the details that help bring the book into my life: the playlist, recipes, and other suggested books. The combination of those three things extends the world of All My Rage and let’s me live in it for a bit.

I really liked the questions you choose to ask the club the interview was great and I really like the extra touch of the choosing which bookmarks they would like.
Enjoyed the extra touch of The recipes.
I have to rate this as a 4 star all the way . I would definitely use this for a book club or if I was on the other side of participating in the book club not hosting it, My expectations were definitely met. Any book club reviewing this book would benefit from this kit a lot of online book club just ask basic question about the book this kit would make me feel proud to use and I would be great full to use this kit
