But dig a little deeper and find a boy who is in constant battle with his parents, his life, himself. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt; In one instant each of these young people decided enough was enough. They grabbed the blade, the bottle, the gun — and tried to end it all.

From the author of the acclaimed "Crank" comes a gut-wrenching story of teens in crisis. Three lives, three different paths to the same destination: Aspen Springs, a psychiatric hospital for those who have attempted the ultimate act of desperation--suicide.
Missy didnt mean to cut so deep. But after the party where she was humiliated in front of practically everyone in school, who could blame her for wanting some comfort? Sure, most people dont find comfort in the touch of a razor blade, but Missy always was . . . different. Thats why she was chosen to become one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War. Now Missy wields a new kind of blade—a big, brutal sword that can cut down anyone and anything in her path. But its with this weapon in her hand that Missy learns something that could help her triumph over her own pain: control. A unique approach to the topic of self-mutilation, Rage is the story of a young woman who discovers her own power and refuses to be defeated by the world.
