Reviews

"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." --Adam Silvera, New York Times bestselling author of They Both Die at the End

"Raw, unflinching, and full of heart. Anger is a Gift is a masterpiece." --Marieke Nijkamp, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before I Let Go

"This debut novel provides a riveting, devastatingly realistic portrayal of the criminalization of marginalized groups and an unwavering examination of the lasting impact of bigotry. His teenage characters have authentic intersectional depth and are developed beyond the various ways society labels them: black, Latinx, disabled, Muslim, asexual, nonbinary, gay, lesbian...the narrative is compelling, providing a new and noteworthy account that continues the conversation and depiction of society's opposition to otherness. This is not to be missed and should be placed in a prominent position in every library serving teens."-- Voya, Jewel Davis.

"An emotional roller-coaster." --Publishers Weekly

"A masterful debut rich with intersectional nuance and grass-roots clarity, Anger is a Gift is hella precious, hella dope."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A strong addition to the current wave of excellent social justice-themed contemporary realistic titles. Give this to fans of Angie Thomas's The Hate U Give."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"Oshiro's novel asks both its characters and its readers what to do next." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
