Read Rage A Love Story

ArttReeve is fierce beautiful wounded elusive; a flame that draws Johanna’s fluttering moth Johanna is determined to get her against all advice and to help her against all reason But lov. The first half was a little tiresome and hard to get into the characters and storyline started fleshing out by the second half view spoilerAlthough the discussion of abuse in lesbian relationships is an important one and I appreciated Julie Anne Peters s attempt to show how the abuser in this situation was a complex character with her own history of abuse but her portrayal did not feel too realistic The extent of abuse in Reeve s family was so extreme culminating in her stepfather murdering her mother and brother it was as if to say that anything less wouldn t constitute an abusive home and the absolute lack of anger in Johanna in response to Reeve abusing her was hard to believe The fact she would try to excuse the violence and manipulation and focus on how much she loved her fine but that she would never ever even blink shout cry Not too realistic It was also strange to me how uickly Reeve fell in love with a girl she had never talked to I was also bothered by Johanna s best friend Novak who consistently referred to her as Lesbo sexually harassed her and was an all around jerk to her being presented as the good friend alternative to Reeve hide spoiler

Rage A Love Story

E isn’t always reasonable rightIn the precarious place where attraction and need collide a teenager experiences the dark side of a first love and struggles to find her way into a new lig. I found myself incredibly disappointed in this book The pacing and the plot were technically good but I found it to be rather predictable I found mysrlf incapable of connecting to a single character and at times felt that the storyline and soul behind Johanna was rushed for the sake of length Maybe I am desensitized from working with LGBT teens some of which coping with abuse but I didn t find the abuse scenes particularly difficult to read or insightful All in all I d say it suceeds at being a message novel but the end is too wrapped up and see everyone discovered and acknowledged their faults and we re all OK now ending that annoyed me

Johanna is steadfast patient reliable; the go to girl the one everyone can count on But always being there for others can’t give Johanna everything she needs it can’t give her Reeve H. Originally posted at Sweet Treats Thrilling TalesI can t lie Rage is a very difficult book to read It would be difficult for anyone to read even if they haven t been in any sort of an abusive relationship But for someone who has been in an abusive relationship it s extremely difficult However Julie Anne Peters writes with such a poetic grace that you cannot help but be sucked inReeve is probably the most realistic character of the book Her pain is real and obvious She hates what she does to Johanna and yet she doesn t know how to control herself She very much loves her twin brother Reeve and protects him as much as she possibly can She can be selfish and yet at the same time she can be extremely unselfish And that shows in every scene that she s in with her brotherJohanna has had an extremely difficult life From the loss of both parents to the fact that her older sister whom she adores appears to have not been able to accept her sexuality to her relationship with Reeve As much as I wanted to like her I had a really hard time doing so Johanna is basically a doormat She pretty much lets everyone walk all over her For most of the book I found myself wishing that she would finally grow a backbone and tell everyone offThat was my one major issue with this book and with abuse books in general Just because someone has become a victim of abuse does not mean that they have to stay a victim Just once I d love to read a book where the victim fights back and does not succumb to the victim syndrome It is in fact possible to remain strong after being a victim and that is also important And personally I think if Johanna hadn t been such a victim the book would have ended better All in all though Johanna is still a very believable character Her reactions and fears are very common So many women and men deny that there is a problem or will wait for their abusive partner to change only to discover that that change will never comeBut despite my two cents on how I wish Johanna had been I still recommend this book Books about domestic violence are rare Especially the domestic violence that occurs within a same sex relationship and I applaud Peters for writing a very real book about a very real topic

    Took me almost 2 mos to read this not because I didn't like it but because the abuse was hard to read about so I could only take it in small doses That speaks to the powerful writing here The ending was very strong and realistic so I'm glad that I stuck with it as it was worth it The characters were all likeab
