Sabaa Tahir Wins 2022 National Book Award for YA "All My Rage"

#1 New York Times Bestselling author Sabaa Tahir has won the 2022 National Book Award for her YA novel “All My Rage.” 

“All My Rage” follows Salahudin and Noor, childhood friends in Juniper, California navigating loss, trauma, and belonging. Sal and Noor’s story is interwoven with the story of Sal’s mother, Misbah, as she moves to the U.S. from Pakistan after marrying Sal’s father. The book was released in March 2020 and was an instant New York Times Bestseller. The NYT called it “a love story, a tragedy and an infectious teenage fever dream about what home means when you feel you don’t fit in.” 

The National Book Award is organized by the National Book Foundation. “All My Rage” was selected as the winner in the Young Peoples’ Literature category by a judging panel of five distinguished experts. 

Tahir, a former newspaper editor, is also the author of the An Ember in the Ashes fantasy series. She is the first Pakistani American Muslim woman to win a National Book Award. Watch Tahir accept the award at the 73rd National Book Awards Ceremony on Nov. 16:
