Shelfari edited the description of RAGE Thursday, July 19, 2012.
Brian Boozer’s life has gone to hell since his father died. His mother’s new lazy husband is much more than merely abusive, and the two are left alone while Brian’s mother works double-shifts everyday to provide for them, making money that her husband spends on booze instead of food. At school, Brian faces four bullies daily that make his life even more miserable. His health has declined, as have his grades. He’s now failing nearly all of his classes. He can’t concentrate on his schoolwork because he lives in fear of his step-father at home, and of the bullies at school. The only bright spot in his life is Carly, the girl on which he’s had a crush for years. As his relationship with Carly soars to new heights, so do the problems at home and the confrontations at school. Brian begins to crumble under the pressure. He's finally pushed past the breaking point, where he does the unthinkable. Realizing what he's done, he knows he must turn himself in. But as usual, no one wants to listen. In a race against time, he fights to be heard, with the sound of a ticking clock as the soundtrack in his mind. And once again, he must face the bullies. This time, with nothing to lose. In a final showdown, even after all hope is lost, Brian desperately struggles to control the anger that is building inside him. Anger that has turned to RAGE.
