The Things a Brother Knows Free read é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB The story of a young marine’s return from war in the Middle East and the psychological effects it has on his familyFinally Levi Katznelson’s older brother Boaz has returned Boaz was a high school star who had it all and gave it up to serve in a war Levi can’t understand Things have been on hold since Boaz left With. 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 portraying the confusion waiting desperation and frustration that a family feels with a soldier s homecoming The road trip 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 to pull it off Although it seems to end abruptly to anyone having gone through something similar it will be familiar there s a point where you either give up or move on Poignant story would be fabulous if people would read it and understand that sometimes even heroes fall even if it s only done in the privacy of their own home with only their family as witnessesRead and reviewed for Arkansas Teen Reads Awards

The Things a Brother Knows Free read é PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB The help of his two best friends Levi has fumbled his way through high school weary of his role as little brother to the heroBut when Boaz walks through the front door after his tour of duty is over Levi knows there’s something wrong Boaz is home safe But Levi knows that his brother is not the sameMaybe things will ne. 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 I picked 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 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 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 YA lit 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 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 brother locks himself in his room refuses to eat stops talking to his family throws around hateful comments and lashes out at his parents and brother keeps secrets refuses to ride in a car has night terrors dissociates regularly lashes out physically 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 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 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 lot 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 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 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
