enough to be bothntertaining and disturbing Beautiful sailing and stargazing imagery abounds The one weakness I would cite is the way the novel nds Secrets are revealed the school year is over and the story is finished With so many serious considerations introduced throughout the book the nd feels abrupt and leaves hazy the author s intentions for the story s message Highly recommended nonetheless 45 stars Poor Rich Kids Rich kids who d gotten caught been given a second chance only to be caught again then finally Codependent Forevermore: The Invention of Self in a Twelve Step Group expelled We weren t bad people but having failed that initial test of innocence and honour we no longer felt burdened to be good Sailing metaphors abound in this coming of age tale as wexplore the murky depths below the glittering surface of the affluent world of the New England wealthy lites revealing the moral bankruptcy of their status and money obsessed societyInsulated from censure by their rich and powerful parents over privileged kids play delinuent at their East Coast prep school academy where the 17 year old narrator finds that juvenile misdemeanors can have far lasting conseuences than he imagined It s hard to put into words the abundant compassion that Amber Dermont displays for her characters But it s there apparent from the first paragraph to the final wordThe prep school world of Jason Prosper looks alternately like Cruel Intentions and your standard bildungsroman with a little murder mystery thrown in But the whole is so much than the sum of its parts It s a treatise on class privilege It s a discussion of race particularly in the world of the wealthy It s an honest look at teenage sexuality in all its sordid shame and tender honesty It s an homage to the sea and to sailing Ultimately it s a love story to a kid who s just starting to figure out who he is and what he wants out of life who gets dealt some pretty big blows that no one around him seems willing to recognizeI felt so drawn to the story from the first page and so inexplicably sad throughout the arly part of reading it Conscience and Memory even before I had any reason to I thought about it constantly when I wasn t reading it and finishing it both lifted a weight off my shoulders and weighed me down withmpathy and forgiveness It sounds weird but I mean that in a good wayAnother thing it gave me was a surprisingly intricate look at the world of teenage boys As the author is a woman I m not sure how accurate it is but it s multifaceted and nicely treated and I d be interested to give this book to one of my brothers to gauge his opinion of it This would be a great book club pick and in fact I went hunting for the.

I m afraid I don t HAVE A LOT OF POSITIVE THINGS a lot of positive things say about this one First a disclaimer I listened to the audio version of this one in the car and while I love audio books as a rule very now and then I Education in a New Society: Renewing the Sociology of Education encounter one read by a film or TV actor who really should NOT bemployed as an audio reader Just because they are a known name and I m sure perfectly competent at their primary profession that does not always translate to capturing the right tone in an audio book or specially competence at voicing multiple characters This one was SO bad the voices for the multiple characters This one was SO bad the voices for the of the characters so clich d and cartoonish I almost stopped listening to this book after the first CD It bothered me a little less as time went on but may have had a little influence on my impressionsSadly there were plenty of Other Issues That Cannot Be Blamed On The Audio Format issues that cannot be blamed on the audio format book contains some interesting themes but in my opinion at least suffers from weak developmentwriting of themes As well as predictability of plot and the need for a review of show don t tell the novel is weakened by an uneven narrator who leaps between one xtreme characteristic to the other hurtling from A to E with no B C or D no hint of transition in his thoughtsactions That said I did find both Aiden and Chester and Cal although he only appears in flashbacks interesting and sympathetic Another aspect of the writer s style that drove me a little crazy at several points the author shied away from important and perhaps challenging to write scenes and conversations between the characters Then she simply mentioned in passing a chapter or so later that they happened For The Baby Swap Miracle example Aiden and Jason are talking intensely and Jason is understandably hesitant to tell her the full truth about his relationship with Cal and role in his death I was waiting for it to happen since the author had mentioned Jason s internal conflict over his secrets and wanting to be closehonest with Aiden repeatedly The scene never came instead at a seemingly randomtacked on moment the narrator is like oh and that night apparently after the authornded the scene I had finally told Aiden about Cal and his death tc There is no real mention of her response until almost the nd of the novel again in retrospect and zero discussion of how the conversation came about While I can see the need to withhold a few details of their conversation for a big reveal towards the nd it was very frustrating as written That happened than once and it struck me as lazy writing and very ineffective When I finish certain books I m sad that they re over but feel fulfilled by the chance to have read them Amber Dermont s debut novel The Starboard Sea is one of those books I couldn t stop myself from wanting to race through the ntire book but tried in vain to slow down as the nd approached because I wanted to prolong the story and see what came next for the characters It s 1987 just before the stock market crash Jason Prosper is a rich high school senior from New York City raised with all of the benefits a wealthy family can offer After getting kicked out of his prep school following the suicide of his best friend and roommate Cal Jason winds up at Bellingham a boarding school for many second chance kids of privilege Struggling with Cal s memory and guilt over his death Jason finds himself drawn to Aidan a student with her own troubled past The two begin to let their guards down and confide in one another And then one night when a hurricane hits New England verything goes awry leaving Jason to once again pick up the pieces and he discovers just what privilege can do and what it can t At first I thought I wouldn t Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation enjoy this book because I couldn t identify with rich reckless high school students used to gettingverything they wanted and living lives I could only imagine But Dermont s development of the characters Gender Justice even those who seemed on the surface like nothing than rich kid stereotypes is very complex and she really draws you into all that Jason is struggling with I honestly could have spent another few hundred pages watching what happened next with the characters once they left Bellingham and seeing what direction Jason s life took and that to me is the mark of a fantastic book Dermont is a really terrific writer and I can t wait to see what she does next This book is being sold as adult fiction but it s YA at its lamest an unholy brew of Ordinary People Catcher in the Rye and Twilight minus the occult I knew I was in trouble in the first chapter when the tortured gay rich kid says he likes rock climbing because I always seemed to be draw to jagged places Uh oh The sailing stuff was pretty neat but I uickly became distracted by the nonstop descriptions of people s hair our hero s matted curls our heroine s glorious red locks always being swept up or floating free if you hav.
