Silent Alarm review ñ 103 Alys’s whole world was comprised of the history project that was due her upcoming violin audition being held tightly in the arms of her boyfriend Ben and laughing with her best friend Delilah At least it was until she found herself on the wrong end o. In her newest novel Silent Alarm Jennifer Banash explores the emotional topic of school shootings and their aftermaths from the point of view of the shooter s sister Alys is a daughter a musician a best friend and a girlfriend but after her brother opens fire on their school campus and then kills himself Alys is only the sister of a murderer Her parents incapacitated by grief and guilt retreat within themselves leaving Alys to work through her complicated feelings and confusion by herself Because Luke took his own life as well the entire community including Alys s best friend and boyfriend blame Alys for not noticing her brother s dangerous downward spiral and preventing its culmination I m sorry I say for what feels like the millionth time I know even as my mouth forms the words that I will say them for the rest of my life Forever That there will never be a time when I am not in some small way apologizing for the damage my brother has wrought Luke is dead too like Katie I know but this makes no difference My grief will always be less important A large part of Alys s inner struggle centers around her inability to completely hate and revile her brother like the rest of the community does following the shooting She is angry hurt and shocked but she still loves him Her final images of him pointing the shotgun at her face then turning and killing a girl nearby doesn t match the brother she grew up with The brother she rode to school with every morning bickered with and loved even after he seemed to withdraw from their family and succumb to his dark moods turning inward Her confusion is pervasive jumping off the page in an affecting way forcing the reader to confront the difficult truth that Luke despite her actions is neither wholly good nor bad The choir box is empty this morning and I long for some kind of melody the crash of the organ the flight of angelic voices My fingers twitch against the fabric of my dress and I close my eyes remembering the Debussy the Brahms lullaby I played each night before bed my face pressed to the pad beneath my chin arms cutting the air around me The fact that Luke doesn t deserve music the blissful lilt and salvation of it make me for some reason saddest of all Music is an important part of Alys s life but after the shooting she separates herself from her violin and the solace it provides Not only does Alys feel that she has lost that part of herself she feels she no longer deserves to feel the joy it brings her She uestions whether she could have prevented her brother s actions if only she had been less involved in her own life if only she weren t so distracted by music while her brother suffered enough that he brought a gun to school and murdered their friends She believes that if her brother does not deserve music she doesn t either I especially loved Alys s conversations with her violin instructor an older woman who has lived a long life filled with both love and loss She is one of the very few characters in Silent Alarm who recognizes and acknowledges Alys s pain It feels like I died with Luke alongside all of those kids who looked up from gossiping in the uad from the useless pages of their books in the library to meet the barrel of my brother s gun his face filled with hate In a way I died the moment Luke walked into that library the moment we came face to face Now I m trapped in the land of the dead a barren landscape shards of bone cutting my feet their voices a soft chatter telling me to follow Banash s decision to tell this story from Alys s point of view rather than Luke s or a classmate s was insightful Alys provides the reader with a singular context through which to view the shooting because she is both a victim and a relative It s unlikely that any other narrator would have the same struggle as Alys whose two very different mental images of Luke one as loving brother one as murderer are at war Because of Alys s distinct voice and uniue view of the situation and its aftermath I was able to connect to Silent Alarm in a very real and powerful wayHighly recommended Hottest Mess retreat within themselves leaving Alys to work through her complicated

review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ï Jennifer Banash

Silent Alarm review ñ 103 In this story that youth was Alys’s own brother Luke He killed fifteen others and himself but spared her though she’ll never know why Alys’s downward spiral begins instantly and there seems to be no bottom A heartbreaking and beautifully told sto. Wow What an emotional novel Reading about a school shooting is gut wrenching itself but reading about the shooters family s backlash and how it affected them Banash did a wonderful job in my opinion I could not imagine my sibling doing this Alys not only lived through it but she saw her brother in the act In fact she could have easily been one of the victims Then to have to live everyday knowing that knowing the people her own flesh and blood shot Not that I have any experience but I think the way Alys coped and lived afterward was very mature almost The situation with her parents was bound to happen even before Luke took a shotgun to school They were always arguing never happy Maybe that could have been a factor in Luke s decision Maybe not I like how Banash didn t make excuses for Luke The event happened Nothing could have happened to change it But the way Alys coped through it That can be changed It has stages and Alys had to figure out how to live again after her brothers actions Reading about it happening through Alys s eyes at the beginning of the novel was surreal I had goosebumps and tears were building in my eyes Riley and Alys s friendship made me smile They needed to lean on each other and hopefully when they both have moved on their friendship will last and they will stay in touch Delilah and Ben are jerks I can understand Ben s point of view because of his sister but Delilah has no excuse what so ever and she is just a terrible friend Good riddance getting rid of her Seriously this was an amazing novel even though it is a terrible subject I think Banash did an awesome job with this book and I will not be forgetting it any time soon
