Anger Is a Gift Reviews

  • Rachel

    This was an incredible novel, a portrayal of pain and anger and love and light and justice. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

  • Dahlia

    The best way I can describe this book is "Imagine THUG and DEAR MARTIN had a gay baby." (ETA: Actually, I'm going with "Imagine THUG and DEAR MARTIN had a gay baby that was then single-mothered by JULIET TAKES A BREATH.") I think there are more Q/TPoC in this book alone than in all of YA combined (well, excepting CB Lee's awesome SIDEKICK series, maybe), and the fact that that's in a social justice book about police brutality...it's a really nice thing to imagine how many people are going to fee ...more

    Official blurb: "ANGER IS A GIFT is an explosion of fury and revolution. Mark Oshiro's beautiful and brutal debut proves that not only can anyone be a hero, but great change comes when the heroes work together."

    2.5 stars.

    I didn't love this. I wanted to, I kind of expected to, but I didn't - for more than one reason, but they all come back to the writing, which didn't work for me.

    Anger Is a Gift is a story about police violence and racism from a point of view I hadn't seen yet: a gay black boy with anxiety whose school is every day more similar to a prison, with cops and metal detectors but no money for books.

    This is a contemporary, but it works perfectly as a dystopian, except it's real. I mean, the po

    Oh wow this is an incredibly powerful book...just wow. Definitely do. not. miss this one when it's out in May, ok, peoples?!? It's so well written with amazing characters and it just sucks you write in so you're there, experiencing this horribly unfair and frightening world of police brutality and racism...and also strong friendships and love. Moss was amazing and so so relatable.

    LOOK EVERYONE WAS ANXIOUS AND GAY AND JUST DOING THEIR BEST.

    And honestly, as a white/Australian, this almost felt dys

    "Wait," said Shamika. "Did you give him your number before or after?" [seeing a panic attack]

    "After. Why?"

    "Whew," she said, throwing her hands up. "Marry that man right now."

    Wanda swatted at her again. "Shamika!"

    "Look, I'm just sayin'," she said. "This boy already knows Moss is crazy and is still interested?"


    "It's just sometimes I wish my brain worked like everyone else. That I could get through the day without the fear of a breakdown looming over me."


    "Anger is a gift.. Remember that." She stood. "You gotta grasp on to it, hold it tight and use it as ammunition. You use that anger to get things done instead of just stewing in it."


    His heart swelled with affection and admiration. In a universe so cruel and unfair, so designed to torment him, he'd been given a mother who cared for him, deeply and completely.

    can't belive I got an ARC of this I'M SO HAPPY

  • Elise (TheBookishActress)

    remember when I obsessively read that Mark Reads Twilight column? yeah, well, he wrote a book about systematic oppression and it's going to fucking rock.

  • Emma Giordano

    4.5 Stars! I really really loved this book. An absolute must read for fans of stories of teen activists.

    CW: racism, assault, violence, police brutality, murder/death

    Anger Is A Gift features such a diverse cast of characters to the point where I don't believe I can list them all and I am so down for more books with this trait. There are gay characters (own voices!), trans characters, non-binary characters, bisexual/biromantic characters, asexual characters, black characters, Latinx characters (ow
