    [synopsis] => In the vein of Grown and The Poet X, a searing and defiant novel in verse about reclaiming agency after a sexual assault within the church community
	Sixteen-year-old Amina Conteh has always believed in using her tongue as her weapon-even when it gets her into trouble. After cursing at a classmate, her father forces her to volunteer at their church with Pastor Johnson. 


 But Pastor Johnson isn't the holy man everyone thinks he is.


 The same voice Amina uses to fight falls quiet the night she is sexually assaulted by Pastor Johnson. After that, her life starts to unravel: her father is frustrated that her grades are slipping, and her best friend and boyfriend don't understand why the once loud and proud girl is now quiet and distant. In a world that claims to support survivors, Amina wonders who will support her when her attacker is everyone's favorite community leader.


 When Pastor Johnson is arrested for a different crime, the community is shaken and divided; some call him a monster and others defend him. But Amina is secretly relieved. She no longer has to speak because Pastor Johnson can't hurt her anymore–or so she believes.


 To regain her voice and sense of self, Amina must find the power to confront her abuser-in the courtroom and her heart-and learn to use all the fighting parts within her. "Gutsy and defiant, All the Fighting Parts is a battle hymn for loud-mouthed girls, and a searing invitation to all-but especially survivors-to speak their truth."; "The sharp shift in tone and structure instantly divides Amina's story into a stark before and after in the same way an assault can divide a life. But she, like most courageous victims, refuses to let divide define her. A heroic and candid debut."; "Incredibly moving, beautifully written, and oh-so powerful, All the Fighting Parts is a stunning debut novel-in-verse. Hannah V. Sawyerr is a talent to watch." ; "Perfect for readers of Shout by Laurie Halse Anderson and The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo, All the Fighting Parts is an honest, brilliant, and powerful novel-in-verse. Amina's story isn't just about a girl who survives sexual assault. Readers will root for her as she journeys through survival, grief of losing a parent, and the role faith can play in finding oneself. A mixed media novel filled with smart writing and honest poetry, Sawyerr tackles difficult topics like religion, sexuality, and survival with tenderness and care. A must read for anyone who has ever felt the words 'me too' in their heart."; "From the very first pages of All the Fighting Parts, Amina grabbed me with her will to not just survive but thrive. Raw, no-nonsense verse digs deep into Amina's emotions as she fights her way back after sexual assault to find her voice and reclaim her life. An incredible, empowering book."; "A powerful story about what must be done with silence. Sawyerr gives us the answer that we all need to hear: Break it."
