    One thought on “Screaming Quietly”

    1. This book is awesome I really like this book because it s about a real struggle that he have to go through One of his issue is that he doesn t want to people at his school to know that his brother is mental He always try to spend time with him at school and at home but they always end up fighting Another reason is that he plays varsity football and their quarter back doesn t like him He would bully him and talk about his brother but people doesn t know about his brother yet He have this girlfrie [...]

    2. This book disgusted me I personally have a brother and a sister who has special needs and I feel for Davey boy who has autism in the book so much All these precious people want is to be treated like everyone else The way Ian ignores his brother around his friends to make him feel better about himself is disgusting I cant imagine EVER being too embarrassed by my siblings in public, especially around my friends The mother and father in this book is the worst thing about it They should be teaching [...]

    3. I highly recommend this book it is about this kid who goes through a life with an autistic kid like my brother

    4. It was a really quick and easy read but was not but I expected it to be Its a boy named Ian that is basically living a secret life because he has a little brother with Autism and he does not want anyone to find out about him Ian is the only sopho to make the varsity football team but he has to miss a lot of practices because he has to help his mom with this autistic brother Davey starts to go to Ian school and now Ian has to ignore his own brother in school This book didnt have any really good p [...]

    5. This book was just okay Quick read and the topic had potential kid with austistic brother trying to keep his family life under wraps because he is embarrassed by it But the main character wasn t nearly developed enough for me to feel any kind of connection There s actually a sentence in the book that says of the main character , He internalized too many emotions I would rather read a book that is actually making me feel those emotions Not only does this one not make me feel them, it doesn t even [...]

    6. Second read for a forthcoming Under the Radar column This is a searing, cathartic depiction of a family s coping with autism through the eyes of a neurotypical older sibling The autistic and neurotypical brothers are foils, and the contrast between their behaviors and reactions to a variety of stressful scenarios provides a dramatic illustration not only of key aspects of autism, but also of timeless social difficulties faced by neurotypical adolescent males.

    7. Disappointing read The story of a boy dealing with his familial issues, including a sibling with autism, definitely had potential but this book didn t rise to the occasion I read it all but felt as though I skimmed it because the book lacks substance The main character is missing depth The story on a whole is not any developed than any of its characters It is just flat.

    8. This was definitely a quick read and proved to me it was indeed appropriate to a younger audience I was surprised at the mindset of the main character, Ian Taylor, considering he is in high school However, it did give off an impression that the author understood what would go through the mind of someone who is put into such a situation as he was.

    9. Did just what a Hi Lo book should do stick to a simple plot, simple characters, and simple diction Screaming Quietly did all that, and portrayed the life of a family with an autistic child through the eyes of the older brother with ample clarity.
