left field and are completely unimportant to and even detract from the plot itself They also have zero development and come essentially out of nowhereProbably people who find this story familiar and relevant to their ownives will enjoy it much than I did And there is potential here but it needed better characterization and ess superfluous romance Not every YA needs to feature "the main character making out guys The book The Things A "main character making out guys The book The Things A Knows by Dana Reinhardt is an extraordinary book I give this book four out of five stars because of all the wonderful things in it The book feels ike a true story and a Feminization and Chastity Training for the Sissy Husband (The League of Dominant Women lot relatable to people because some people really do have family that go into the military and come back maybe aittle The Club of Angels less connected with their family My favorite thing about the book is the overall message because it is easy to relate to The message is that everyife decision you make affects than just you It shows this through the main character named Boaz Boaz graduates high school then decided to join the marines and fight oversea When he eaves his whole "family suffers His mother cleans nonstop his brother Levi slowly stops ooking up to him and does " suffers His mother cleans nonstop his brother Levi slowly stops ooking up to him and does believe in war Boazs ex girlfriend Christina does not believe he used all his smarts to his power The town is in static because Boaz is considered a hero in his town All of these people are just some of the people Boaz affected when he chose to join the military The message was my favorite due to the realness of the book I also oved the connection in the book Even though Boaz and Levi were drifting they still found their way back to each other I found that part so interesting because its what happens in real ife too Two brothers could be fighting yet if one of them ever needs help they would be there for each other That is why I was very impressed with the connection between the two brothers The reason that I only gave it four out of five stars was due to the amount of things I really wish that the book spent time talking about Boaz in the war and all of Boaz friends from "HIGH SCHOOL BASICALLY JUST A LITTLE ON BOAZS HISTORY "school Basically just a ittle on Boazs history past so it helps us understand him even than we already do That is why I gave the book four out of five stars I don t often enjoy YA fiction but I won t rule it out if it Ossos Perdidos (Temperance Brennan, looksike a good story Actually I m finding that I Born Fighting like YA realism in a stand alone format where there isittle or no romance Anyway I picked this up mostly because I saw the name Brother and Levi's older brother Boaz returns from fighting with the Marines in the Middle East He's safe Levi's family has waited three Dr. Simon Forman long years for this But Boaz is noonger the. .

Bones And That ThatAnd that that 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 ve always been interested in how the relationship between guys works especially brothers It s a relationship I can t experience myself so my interest is peaked when I see a book about brothersIn this story we have two brothers Levi and Boaz Boaz is the older brother who is perfect in every way well at east in Levi s eyes Their family is surprised by Boaz s decesion to join the Marines and fight in the Ira war They plead with him not to go but his mind is set he s going It s been a whole year now and Boaz is coming back home Levi can t help but feel that things won t be the same as they were Their mother always on edge and Boaz hardly had any contact with them while he was overseas When Boaz returns he Yolandas Genius locks himself in his room and for reasons unknown is planning a trip on foot Levi has the great need to find out if he can find the brother he used to know or maybe find out how toive with the new oneI m glad the author chose to do it from the younger brother s point of view It gives the uniue view of how much war affects not only the people in the front The Fairytale Hairdresser and Sleeping Beauty lines but also the family and friends they have back home They all have to deal with the new people they have become when they come back It s hard for Levi to understand what Boaz has went through because Boaz just clams up but my hat goes off to Levi because even though it seemsike it s hopeless he keeps tryingThe author also did a good job of describing Levi s The Light Beyond the Forest life his mom dad and grandpa Jewishifestyle and The First Mistake loyal friends Pearl and Zim If you areookng for a pro or anti war book this isn t the book you are Jewelry Making For Beginners looking for The book doesn t take a stand on either side but focuses on the relationhip of brothers and how they don t always have to be bonded by blood Even though Boaz and Levi won t be the same theyl be ok it s just one of the things a brother knows.

Hen I fell in The Penguin Book of English Verse love with the cover After I read the synopsis I had to take it home I picked up this book at 1150ast night because I was tired but not ready to go to bed and I needed something a bit Seven Secrets of Happiness lighter than On Writing to help me settled I finished three hoursater with misty eyes and a conflicted heart I might have dreamed of it This book tackles some really tough topics The Killer Cats Birthday Bash (The Killer Cat, like war PTSD familyove 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 The Force of Destiny love with That fact seeps through the entire narrative without being entirely essential to the plot There is also a Chinese girl who was adopted at ten Disabled characters And realistic depictions of people of all ages including the MC s grandfather one of the biggest faults I find in YAit today is the tendency to demonize adults and older people as being backward and stuck in their ways or in some cases even dangerous and hateful I also feel The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters (Chapter 9 Provocateur) 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 perspective Things that I ve heard from people I am close to who s family members returned from war The MC s older brotherocks himself in his room refuses to eat stops talking to his family throws around hateful comments and How I Became a Nun lashes out at his parents and brother keeps secrets refuses to ride in a car has night terrors dissociates regularlyashes out physically even when he s not dissociating or dreaming which is something a The Rose Tattoo and Other Plays lot of depictions don t take into account and relives events in ways other than the oh so tropey flashback episode IE with physical sensations confusion dissociation and a heightened fight or flight response Iove 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 final point 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 ot of conflicting feelings on this the MC himself goes on a journey where he steps away from his antipathy in the situation and can see the human side to the war Not pro 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 "remind me of 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 ove with I First Flight (Dragon School ll admit this book 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 withoved ones with PTSD I am currently on 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 "give a brief idea of the book so far without any spoilers This book is about a whose intelligent and successful brother enlists in the marines rather than going to any high The Lone Man level college of his choice The book doesn t show what happened durring the war but what happened after His brother won teave his room and has changed a ot since the war The book does a great
