Y in the situation and can see the human side to the war Not ro war or anti war as he says multiple times Don t get me wrong this book has a few issues There are a couple of missteps But they do not take away from the whole I wasn t a huge fan of the POV style the book was writing in but it did remind me of one of my favorite books as a child and sure enough the author thanked Markus Zusak in the end The author of the book I so fell in love with I ll admit this book Battered Not Broken plays all my favorite tropes so I might be a bit slanted on it But it s rare that I find a book that is both really entertaining and realistic I highly suggest it especially if you are an author who wants to write characters with PTSD or character dealing with loved ones with PTSD A well written teen novel about soldiers returning home and the families who await them Boaz left home three years ago to enlist and fight in an unspecified foreign war His 17 year old brother Levi is struck by how different the returned Boaz is from the outgoingopular boy that left Written from Levi s What Ive Become (The Humanity Within Book 1) perspective the author explores multiple relationships in order for each brother to realize what they know about each other and themselves This isn t a long book and much of the story is building up to a climactic final chapter Unfortunately the ending doesn t uite match the anticipationThis book was reuired reading for my son entering 9th grade In a way it s an easyick for high school classes the multiple relationships rovide a wealth of material for discussion and assignments Much time will be spent in class examining Boaz Levi and their friends and family Still wouldn t it be great if someday teachers assigned reuired reading that teens loved and begged for when school began I could easily read another couple hundred ages of this but at the same time I think it s just long enoughIt s concise but beautifully written in its dryness the kind of writing that once in a while just hits you with a UML Weekend Crash Course [With CDROM] particularlyiercing and visual sentenceIt tells the story it wants to tell nothing nothing less in about three hours of reading It s complete but clearly tangibly just a beginningThe relationship between siblings is something that s always fascinated me and I love the way it s Steampunk Erotica portrayed here because it feels real as far as I know it is and if it isn t for everyone I know for certain that it is at least for someoneThe entire Katznelson family is one you grow to feel for an incredible amount despite spending so little time with them in terms ofagesLevi in Poker Slave particular is a wonderful characterretty much an average kid delightfully normal but than a little amazing in his own right brave and funny but not in a showy deliberately humourous wayAnd Boaz Honestly I still know fuck all about BoazBut I love him That right there says something about the strength of this story as a novel and as a collective To the Golden Shore portraitPicking their relationship back up and working through the space that has come between is an extremely difficultrocess for Levi and Bo and the way Reinhardt narrates it you can feel it in your bones And that that s what makes the resolution that is not actually a resolution but will satisfy you all the same all the rewardingIt s a delicate but concrete story about friendship brotherhood and change with the war in the background a silent but imposing backgroundIt s the kind of story everyone should read I am currently on Indulge (Warm Delicacy, page 46 of 242 in The Things a Brother Knows So far I have enjoyed the book since it fits my tastes and is a realistic fiction book I will give a brief idea of the book so far without any spoilers This book is about a boy whose intelligent and successful brother enlists in the marines rather than going to any high level college of his choice The book doesn t show what happened durring the war but what happened after His brother won t leave his room and has changed a lot since the war The book does a great job illustrating the emotional challenges of war and definitely gets you thinking Levi s brother Boaz joined the Marines at age 18 a sudden and surprising decision for him He comes back after three years at war as Bo who sleeps on the floor hides in his room at all times and refuses to ride in a car anywhere There absolutely needs to be books about this because how manyeople see a brother a husband a son a cousin or a friend go to war and come bac. Brother Levi thought he knew Even if nobody else wants to see it Levi can tell that Boaz has changed; something's wrong When Boaz announces he's off to hike the Appalachia.

This is one of those books I think everyone should read As a wife of a military man and coming from a long line of military folks I m already biased toward this book That said I ll admit that this book was hard to get into at the beginning It moved slowly was a bit confusing and aggravating the way nothing seemed to happen or change BUT thinking back on the times I ve faced similar circumstances of soldier homecomings this is exactly what it is like The author has done an amazing job of ortraying the confusion waiting desperation and frustration that a family feels with a soldier s homecoming The road trip Cast On, Bets Off portion of the story was lovely Perhaps a bit unrealistic for the majority of soldiers but in this case was written with strong enough characters toull it off Although it seems to end abruptly to anyone having gone through something similar it will be familiar there s a Private Elisha Stockwell, Jr., Sees The Civil War point where you either give up or move on Poignant story would be fabulous ifeople would read it and understand that sometimes even heroes fall even if it s only done in the Past Lives, Future Lives privacy of their own home with only their family as witnessesRead and reviewed for Arkansas Teen Reads Awards I don t often enjoy YA fiction but I won t rule it out if it looks like a good story Actually I m finding that I like YA realism in a stand alone format where there is little or no romance Anyway Iicked this up mostly because I saw the name Brother and then I fell in love with the cover After I read the synopsis I had to take it home I Love with Every Beat picked up this book at 1150 last night because I was tired but not ready to go to bed and I needed something a bit lighter than On Writing to help me settled I finished three hours later with misty eyes and a conflicted heart I might have dreamed of it This book tackles some really tough topics like war PTSD family love and what it means to be a man Firstly this doesn t often factor into my reading but this is very diverse book The MC is an Isreali boy son of an Immigrant and the American woman he fell in love with That fact seeps through the entire narrative without being entirely essential to thelot There is also a Chinese girl who was adopted at ten Disabled characters And realistic depictions of CPA Australia - Advanced Taxation people of all ages including the MC s grandfather one of the biggest faults I find in YA lit today is the tendency to demonize adults and oldereople as being backward and stuck in their ways or in some cases even dangerous and hateful I also feel like the depictions of a soldier with PTSD in this book is very accurate PTSD is a bit of an overused trope in fiction but it tends to be very convenient In other words the MC can be really emotional at a moment and have a nightmare or something but it doesn t effect them outside of a chance for the author to dump some random emotional backstory that has nothing to do with the text It s one reason why I m often nervous to read a book with a character who has PTSD This book showed other sides mostly from a family If Walls Could Talk (Haunted Home Renovation Mystery, perspective Things that I ve heard fromeople I am close to who s family members returned from war The MC s older brother locks himself in his room refuses to eat stops talking to his family throws around hateful comments and lashes out at his Arcana Mundi parents and brother keeps secrets refuses to ride in a car has night terrors dissociates regularly lashes outhysically even when he s not dissociating or dreaming which is something a lot of depictions don t take into account and relives events in ways other than the oh so tropey flashback episode IE with به سوی زبان شناسی شعر physical sensations confusion dissociation and a heightened fight or flight response I love how this books added all these things and did talk about the actual events that caused this behavior but didn t focus on the backstory Instead it focused on the MC his emotional journey in growing up in a way that he could take care of his brother and the complexity that these issues really bring up Which brings me to the finaloint This book doesn t take a stance The book shows both sides of the coin People who wave the flag and claim that the soldier character is a hero and suddenly care about his family where they never did before And also characters who don t support the war And in the MC character s family there are actually a lot of conflicting feelings on this the MC himself goes on a journey where he steps away from his antipath. Levi's older brother Boaz returns from fighting with the Marines in the Middle East He's safe Levi's family has waited three long years for this But Boaz is no longer the.
