All That Is Red offers compassionate insight into a dark and shameful topic that crosses the mind of most teenagers, especially girls.

Ms. Caltabiano develops the main character without pop-psychology and flip-responses. She delves into the meaning of life and emotions, the essence of human beings and love.

All That Is Red captures the reader's attention and keeps the reader's attention throughout the plot's twists and turns.

I rate this book as a must read for parents, teenagers and grandparents.

All That Is Red was amazing book. It really changed the way I think about emotions and feelings. It said somethings about emotions that I never thought about. It even changed the way I look at people. When I bought this book I was like okay its another book to read. Now im really glad i read it and will read it probably a billion more times.

A childlike presentation, minimally interesting, predictable ending. Considering the author's age, I will look forward to her stories as she matures. I won't pass this one on to my grandchildren.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

Anna Caltabiano's All That is Red is a young adult novel decorated with beautiful prose and great pacing. I read this one in just a few short hours (it's only about 160-ish pages long), and although I wasn't entirely surprised by the conclusion, it was an intriguing way to end this very unusual book.

One thing the reader should probably keep in mind while exploring this novel is that it is one long metaphor. I'm not going to tell you for what, since I'm not going to ruin it for you, but I just want to mention this so you can fully understand how impressive this interesting novel is.

We are introduced to a protagonist who is immediately thrust into a strange world of red. At the same time that this new character admits that she just wants to feel something, her new world starts losing its colour. We are never given names (until the conclusion) and I think the point of this is so that any reader can possibly relate to the message beneath the story.

I think what makes this even more intriguing and possibly empowering is that a teenager wrote it. I find this important because who better than a teenager to tell us about the ever-growing difficulties of emotions in adolescences?

The prose is beautiful. The writing flowed so well that the pages melted away and whereas other books may trip me up with their metaphors, this one kind of just flowed, like the river the characters are following. Also, the great thing about having wonderful prose is that the pacing is made even better. There was no lagging as the story progressed, making it a pretty quick read.

What I didn't like so much was how it was kind of drawn out.

This book is intriguing from the start. It is written as an allegory, but along the way provides glimpses into someone's real life experiences. After being moved by the story as I finished it, I felt compelled to re-read it - just to again examine the details in how the story unfolded that now held more meaning to me. Well written indeed! Kudos to Ms. Caltabiano!
