    Epub Trouble eBook ç ✓ cutabovebarberagencycouk ✓ trouble free, Trouble EpubYou know as a children’s librarian Gary Schmidt gives me no end of for lack of a better word trouble As far as I can tell he’s probably one of those authors that doesn’t like to begin writing a book by pigeonholing it for a single age group If I'm right then it would explain why his oeuvre does a funny dance between children’s literature and young adult literature without the author ever fully belonging to one or the other Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy? Children’s historical fiction The Wednesday Wars? Getting up there but I think 13 and 14 year olds would enjoy it Trouble? Oh Trouble As I began reading this book I hoped that it would be for the same age range as The Wednesday Wars and that would be the end of it Yet as I read on and got wrapped up in the story it became pretty clear that Schmidt has probably produced his most mature work of literature to date Due

    Epub Trouble eBook ç ✓ cutabovebarberagencycouk ✓ trouble free, Trouble EpubGary Schmidt is probably my favorite children's writer after the venerable Katherine Paterson I love both of them as phenomenal people and admire them both madly as writers So that's a disclaimer of sorts That said I didn't love TROUBLE as much as LIZZIE BRIGHT and I didn't work on this book so don't have uite the affection for it that I do for THE WEDNESDAY WARS And I do see a few wee little problems in the narrative BUT they hardly matter bc I think the heart of this book rises far above t

    Epub Trouble eBook ç ✓ cutabovebarberagencycouk ✓ trouble free, Trouble EpubI’ve found that some authors make me feel good about my own abilities as a writer I read their work and I think to myself ‘OK I’m relatively certain I’m at least in the same league with this and such author’ No such luck with Gary Schmidt This guy is an absolute pro Trouble is a gritty young adult novel about a teenager whose all star older brother is struck and killed by a truck apparently driven by a young Cambodian refugee In the aftermath of this tragedy Henry sets out on a uest to climb Mount Katahdin in Maine only to discover that the one responsible for his brother’s death is headed in the same direction There’s no uestion Schmidt writes from a we

    Epub Trouble eBook ç ✓ cutabovebarberagencycouk ✓ trouble free, Trouble EpubThis is my review Another amazing coming of age novel from Schmidt plus SO much I can't begin to explain how much I adore this book I thought Wednesday Wars was near perfect but having just finished Trouble I don't know which one I like better Schmidt is an amazingly gifted writer His imagery is so evocative yet tangible His characters are accessible likeable and still complex enough to be real I am a thirty something mother of three daughters and found this book to be an engaging believable story of a boy trying to make sense of his emotions when his perfect New England prep school world comes crashing down around him Schmidt draws racial and cultural prejudices into uestion by encouraging the reader to see the human story behind someone labeled as Other ie not like meus And he deftly explores the themes of redemption forgiveness and how we deal with grief both collectively and personally For me this book is the young adult version of Cry the Beloved

    Epub Trouble eBook ç ✓ cutabovebarberagencycouk ✓ trouble free, Trouble EpubThe road trip portion is the best part of Trouble because we finally get to know Chay Unfortunately we only got snippets of the story from his perspective He's a fantastic character and his story is such a compelling one that it seems a real shame we really only just begin to know him The trouble stuff felt really ham fisted and I wish it had been edited out because it distracts from an otherwise beautiful story

    Epub Trouble eBook ç ✓ cutabovebarberagencycouk ✓ trouble free, Trouble EpubMy favorite sentences from this book areHe could see pink and white blossoms in nearby orchards and farther away the brief yellow of the daffodils so bright they looked as if Van Gogh had just come from them with his paint brush still wet in his hand pg 108A heart that has lost knows every other heart that has lost pg 197The first let me see what the author was describing the second is just a lovely way to say what is true And comparing a book to a painting is a wonderful way to provide a visual image of what can be difficult to describe Van Gogh's bright colors can still look freshly painted but he never paints light without darkness and this book is about learning to live with the darkness that is Trouble and discovering the light that is Grace Henry's father often says 'If you build your house far away

    Epub Trouble eBook ç ✓ cutabovebarberagencycouk ✓ trouble free, Trouble EpubI did not like this book It started slow but never picked up There was a few small action parts but they still did not make the book good and did not flow well I also disliked the main character He tried to pick fights and had almost no personality I also despised how unobservant and oblivious he was It was almost to the point of being unrealistic and while I will not spoil the book by providing examples it took him FOREVER to figure out the most obvious things I think this would have been interesting from Chay's view Plus while there was description there was almost always too much or none I had no idea what most of the characters looked like I would not recommend this book
