9780375844560: The Things a Brother Knows

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 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 Appalachian Trail, Levi knows he's lying. He's heading somewhere else. So Levi follows, determined to understand who his brother was, what he's been through, and how to bring him home again.

About the Author:

DANA REINHARDT is the author of A Brief Chapter in My Impossible Life, Harmless, and How to Build a House. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and two daughters.

From AudioFile:

Joshua Swanson recounts the story of a troubled vet, Boaz, recently returned from the Middle East, and his conflicted younger brother, Levi. "Boaz went in the military as a man and came back a ghost," claims Levi, who is so determined to bust through his brother's monosyllabic shell that he stalks him on a long trek from Baltimore to Washington, DC. The plans works eventually; conversation evolves, and so does Levi's understanding of war and kin. Swanson has the tempo and temperament of the brothers down pat. The boys' Israeli father and grandfather give Swanson a chance to demonstrate his Hebrew accent as they try to reach Boaz. Swanson's narration of Levi's colorful friendships and first romance is delivered as a counterpoint to the traumas of war. D.P.D. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

Book Description Ember, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Starred Review,Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2010: "The emotional journey is leavened with humor and a little romance, but it moves toward the conclusion with an inevitability that grabs and doesn't let go. Every character contributes and brings a point of view that adds to a fuller picture of the personal consequences of war without being simplistically pro or anti. Powerful." Starred Review,Publishers Weekly, August 30, 2010: "With exceptional sensitivity, Reinhardt (How to Build a House) chronicles a soldier's troubling homecoming, in this timely novel told from his younger brother's point of view . . . Reinhardt personalizes a soldier's traumas in terms civilians can understand. Levi's growing comprehension of Boaz's internal turmoil is gracefully and powerfully evoked." Starred Review,Booklist, October 1, 2010: "Reinhardt's poignant story of a soldier coping with survivor's guilt and trauma, and his Israeli American family's struggle to understand and help, is timely and honest."
