All The Rage: Q&A and Giveaway!

Thursday, April 30, 2015


1) How did you come up with your characters' names?
I visit and then I go through names and names and names until I feel a ‘click.’ Whether or not I might like the name, as soon as I have that gut-feeling, I know it belongs to the character I’m writing about.

2) What was your inspiration for your novel?
All the Rage is a response to rape culture, victim-blaming and the way we fail victims and survivors of sexual violence; a reflection of the world we’re living in now.

3) Is there a favorite place you like to write or think of ideas for novels?
I can write anywhere if I have to—but I do prefer a quiet room, away from distractions. I am very easily distracted. :)

Thanks for having me on your blog!

The sheriff's son, Kellan Turner, is not the golden boy everyone thinks he is, and Romy Grey knows that for a fact. Because no one wants to believe a girl from the wrong side of town, the truth about him has cost her everything-friends, family, and her community. Branded a liar and bullied relentlessly by a group of kids she used to hang out with, Romy's only refuge is the diner where she works outside of town. No one knows her name or her past there; she can finally be anonymous. But when a girl with ties to both Romy and Kellan goes missing after a party, and news of him assaulting another girl in a town close by gets out, Romy must decide whether she wants to fight or carry the burden of knowing more girls could get hurt if she doesn't speak up. Nobody believed her the first time-and they certainly won't now-but the cost of her silence might be more than she can bear.

With a shocking conclusion and writing that will absolutely knock you out, All the Rage examines the shame and silence inflicted upon young women in a culture that refuses to protect them.

Courtney Summers lives and writes in Canada, where she divides most of her time between a camera, a piano and a word processing program. She is also the author of What Goes Around, This is Not a Test, Fall for Anything, Some Girls Are, Cracked Up to Be, and Please Remain Calm.
