Description de l'ouvrage

1 avril 2014
Family secrets cut to the bone in this mesmerizing debut novel about a teen whose drug-addicted brother is the prodigal son one time too many.

There is a pecking order to every family. Seventeen-year old Clare is the overprotected baby; Peter is the typical, rebellious middle child; and Luke is the oldest, the can’t-do-wrong favorite. To their mother, they are a normal, happy family.

To Clare, they are a family on the verge of disaster. Clare: the ambitious striver; Peter: the angry ticking time bomb; and Luke: a drug-addicted convicted felon who has been in and out of jail for as long as Clare can remember—and who has always been bailed out by their parents.

Clare loves Luke, but life as his sister hasn’t been easy. And when he comes home (again), she wants to believe this time will be different (again). Yet when the truths behind his arrests begin to surface, everything Clare knows is shaken to its core. And then Luke is arrested. Again.

Except this time is different, because Clare’s mom does the unthinkable on Luke’s behalf, and Clare has to decide whether turning her back on family is a selfish act…or the only way to keep from drowning along with them.

Biographie de l'auteur

Anna Shinoda was raised in a mountain town so small it lacked a stoplight. She used to escape into the high branches of trees to read and dream stories, out of reach from her own family skeleton. Eventually she climbed down with Learning Not to Drown, her debut novel. Visit Anna at AnnaShinoda.com.

Je suis vraiment déçue par ce livre dont le sujet pourtant, semblait prometteur. On s'ennuie rapidement et on finit par craquer et feuilleter pour savoir la fin, attendue. Dommage.

Clare has spent her entire life living in the shadow of her brother Luke's reputation. For years, he's been in and out of jail on various drug charges and, every time he's out, he promises things will be different, but Clare knows better than most that even prison can't banish the monster that is addiction. Despite everything Luke has put her family through, Clare's parents constantly defend him, no matter his sins. To add insult to injury, Clare and her brother Peter are constantly measured against Luke and, in their parents' eyes, always found lacking. Still, Clare loves her brother and believes this time, things might be different.

When truths about Luke's crimes surface and he finds himself, once again, on the wrong side of the law, this time putting Clare's future at risk, Clare must make a decision that might haunt her forever: turn her back on Luke and her parents or sacrifice herself and her future for family. Tackling drug addiction, family skeletons, and the necessity of breaking free of damaging familial relationships, LEARNING NOT TO DROWN is a debut novel that burns with an intensity readers won't soon forget.

It's difficult to succinctly mention the many issues Anna Shinoda takes on in LEARNING NOT TO DROWN. Which, I suppose, is understandable, because drug addiction, a family member going to prison, secrets, and lies all create a ripple effect that's impossible to simplify. Shinoda attempts to understand and create a picture of these effects with LEARNING NOT TO DROWN and have to say, she does a remarkable job. The issues that Clare is dealing with - judgment from her peers because of who her brother is, unrealistic expectations from her parents, doubting her ability to judge someone's character (after truths are revealed about her brother's crimes), etc - have the ability to decimate a person, but Clare is resilient and is determined to overcome the cards she's been dealt. Clare's strength shines in the bleak landscape her family has allowed her world to become, making her growth and successes an inspiration.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Debut Novel by Anna Shinoda 2 avril 2014
Par George Hillinger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
A well written novel about a girl coming to terms with her family demons, the largest one being a brother who she loves that is constantly in and out of prison. Shinoda does a wonderful job of character development and creates a story that we all can relate to on one level or another; family tension and the struggles that it creates growing up.

I sort of felt like I knew where the story was going to go before I started it, I just didn’t know all of the particulars. Even so, the story still found a way to grab me.

Learning Not to Drown is told from Clare’s point of view and occasionally there are flashbacks to Clare’s past. Memories of times shared with her oldest brother Luke whom she adored at the time. Memories of incidents occurring that forever change her family’s life. A life that is now somewhat tainted because of the actions of Luke.

Luke is Clare’s older brother; he has made some particularly bad decisions and has had to pay for them. On more than one occasion. He never seems to learn his lesson. He is constantly in and out of trouble.

Clare is a hardworking prized student; she is awarded scholarships and can basically go to almost any college of her choosing. She is a good kid. Yet her parents, more so her mom than her dad, treats her and her other brother Peter as if they were the ones who kept doing bad things.

Her parents are…unbelievable is the only word I can think of at the moment. The way her mom dotes on Luke so, even after everything he has done is crazy. I wished I could understand their logic.

The more her mom kept trying to help Luke and wanting him to change, the more it made me hope for Clare. Hope that she would be able to stand up for herself and step away from the shadow and skeletons of her brother/family and start fresh.

At times when I was reading it, I wasn’t exactly sure how I felt about it. Overall I ended up liking it. I liked seeing Clare’s internal struggle with her family. How when she felt like she couldn’t go home, she had some good friends who actually cared about her. I wasn’t kept on the edge of my seat or anything, but I did find the story to be realistic, emotional, and interesting. I think the author did a nice job of trying to tie several serious topics together like drugs, family secrets, and lies to create a unique and realistic story.

**I received this book on behalf of the Publisher in exchange for nothing but my honest opinion.**

We often hear the term career criminals. We don't really have much compassion for them and just want to lock them up and throw away the key. Some do some pretty horrendous crimes.

What we don't do is stop to think about the family they leave behind.
That is exactly what this book is about. Luke is a what they consider a career criminal. He has been in and out of jail since he was a teenager. His parents have always been on his side 100%, no matter what. Luke has a younger brother and sister that are often emotionally put aside for Luke's needs by their parents.

The main character in this book is Claire. She grows up with her oldest brother in and out of jail. She was not told until she was 17 what crimes Luke the brother she looks up to, actually committed.

This book touches on emotions, feelings and situations we don't really think about when we think of criminals. I felt myself feeling sorry for the family not for Luke. Luke choose to do these things, his family did not.

This is the debut novel by this author. I loved it and hope she writes more. I read this book in 2 days. I just couldn't put it down. I give it a 5 out of 5.

I won this book in GoodReads' First Reads program (which I love).
The first thing that struck me about this book is its cover art. I could look at it all day. This is a YA book, which usually means dragons and dystopia what have you, but this one is realistic.

Clare's brother Luke has been in jail a lot for "being in the wrong place at the wrong time." Clare adores him, looks forward to his visits. As she gets older, she realizes (mostly through other people's reactions) that Luke might not be such a stand-up guy.

Wonderfully written. Kept me interested, and I never once felt the book was "too young" for me. Why have I not been reading more YA?
