FREE READ The Radius of Us î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB What happens when you fall in love with someone everyone seems determined to fear Ninety seconds can change a life not just daily routine but who you are as a person Gretchen Asher knows this because that’s how long a stranger held her body to the ground When a car sped toward them and Gretchen’s attacker told her to run she recognized a surprising terror in his eyes And now she doesn’t even recognize herselfNinety seconds can change a life not just the place you. 35 Stars High school senior Gretchen Asher s life changed forever the night she was attacked She has lived in fear for the past six months One day she has a panic attack after seeing a young man who resembles her attacker She realizes it couldn t possibly be the same person so she finds him to apologize The young man s name is Phoenix 18 and he just recently arrived in the United States He and his brother Ari 12 fled their home in El Salvador to seek asylum in the United States Gretchen and Phoenix uickly bond She doesn t have to pretend with him He s the first person who asks the uestions that matter and really listens to her replies For Phoenix it s hard being an outsider in a new country where the people are automatically suspicious of him Gretchen s attention makes this place feel like a home Sadly the pair might not have much time together Phoenix has little hope of being granted asylum Don t let that stuff from your past tell you who you are The chapters alternate between Gretchen s and Phoenix s perspectives At first I thought this book may be a little too YA for me but these two characters slowly stole my heart as their background stories were revealed The thoughtful gestures they made to each other as their friendship developed were so sweet The story behind the title is a really aww worthy moment Gretchen and Phoenix are able to lean on each other but sometimes it seems that Gretchen is the one that demands the most support When she realizes the disparity in the relationship she steps up for Phoenix in a meaningful way I m leery of love stories but it helped that these two characters were interesting as individuals They had their own issues to deal with outside of falling in love and other interesting relationships besides each other Their connection solidified because they were are able to empathize with each other in a way that others weren t able to All of those people they don t know what we know Gretchen has been suffering from PTSD since she was attacked She can barely leave the house never knowing what will trigger a panic attack Well meaning people try to talk to her about her incident but they always seem interested in the attacker s appearance or explaining to her what they would ve done She knows she ll never be the same but all her friends and family are waiting for her to revert back to her old self At the same time that Gretchen is trying to get a handle on her PTSD she is also experiencing typical teen problems Her boyfriend moved off to college and they re drifting apart Her best friend Bree acts completely different since getting a boyfriend One thing I liked about that storyline was that while Gretchen is a little annoyed by the new boyfriend he ends up being a great friend to her and Phoenix This isn t the only time that Gretchen s preconceived notions are challenged My American Dream s way simple than that I just wanna be able to go for a walk in the woods alone get on one of those little trails in the forest and walk for hours That would be so awesome Or maybe head over to a friend s place after dinner to watch a football match on TV and not have to look behind my back every five seconds not have to worry about whether I ll make it home alive In El Salvador Phoenix and Ari get forced into a life or death situation Phoenix sees only one way to protect his brother flee The four month journey to the US was long and brutal After the brothers reached the US border they were detained and put into separate detention facilities Phoenix was sent to Atlanta Georgia while Ari is in Texas Phoenix is frustrated that Ari hasn t spoken one word since they were separated traumatized by the horrors they witnessed As an unaccompanied minor Ari has a good chance of staying in the United States but only if he s able to communicate Phoenix was fortunate enough to be taken in by a local family but he has little chance of being granted asylum and even less of a chance if anyone looks deeper into his past In an unforgiving legal system Phoenix is unable to put that past behind him The thought of returning home is terrifying because he will almost certainly be killed Phoenix s chapters shine a light on the United States immigration system the conditions in detention centers and what happens to young people once they reach the borderGretchen and Phoenix both survived things that no one should have to experience They support each other as they learn how to overcome feelings of guilt and keep living a full life despite their past trauma The Radius of Us is than a story about two young people falling in love Through the character s uniue perspectives the reader learns 1 about overcoming preconceived notions 2 what it s like to be a victim of a violent crime 3 how to be a supportive friend and 4 why a person might leave the only home they ve ever known and

FREE READ The Radius of Us î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Live but the person others think you are Phoenix Flores Flores knows this because months after setting off toward the US Mexico border in search of safety for his brother he finally walked out of detention But Phoenix didn’t just trade a perilous barrio in El Salvador for a leafy suburb in Atlanta He became that person the one his new neighbors crossed the street to avoidNinety seconds can change a life so how will the ninety seconds of Gretchen and Phoenix’s first. I can t say how long I ve waited for Central American representation in any book Truthfully I didn t know this book featured a Salvadoran refugee immigrant and everything he struggled with just reminded me of my family Although it was not the best I truly thank the author for getting inspiration after visiting a detention center filled with CA men who are also seeking asylum As a teenager with immigrant parents I think it s important to note that what is happening in this book in his perspective is still happening in out the world and will most likely never end I just want to say thank you to the author for taking time of her own to go to El Salvador and learn our language our culture and about our beautiful yet small and violent country This book can inform the reader about what it really is like being an immigrant from a country almost no one knows about El Salvador is not a country you hear mention uite a lot and its a country that at times no one believes exists or is a Spanish speaking country You can really learn what sacrifices many Latinos have to make in order for them and their family to have a better life than the one they were living theirs at Phoenix truly had made me think about my mother and father and their stories From gang violence to have to illegally cross the border because there s no other option to having two gay mothers I truly felt bad for him He was separated from his brother and all that reminded me of was the recent separation the Central American children with their parents And with Gretchen I was able to connect with her panic attacks but not entirely Hers are very descriptive and realistic mine used to be uick and uiet I truly felt bad for her and although I could not connect with her in any other way I m glad she became understanding of the situationI did expect better from this one I remember when I first added it to my tbr last year and how I was very excited for it because I knew it was a contemporary that featured mental health but I guess either the romance was in the way or the very obvious plot twist that just needed some working to be done The writing could also use some improvement Nothing that s out of the generation but it felt too middle grade and no YA aspects were felt while reading it Triggercontent warning for panic attacks PTSD and some physical abuse The House on Tradd Street uite a lot and its a country that at times no one believes exists or is a Spanish speaking country You can really learn what sacrifices many Latinos have to make in order for them and their family to have a better life than the one they were living theirs at Phoenix truly had made me think about my mother and father and their stories From gang violence to have to illegally cross the border because there s no other option to having two gay mothers I truly felt bad for him He was separated from his brother and all that reminded me of was the recent separation the Central American children with their parents And with Gretchen I was able to connect with her panic attacks but not entirely Hers are very descriptive and realistic mine The Horizon The Royal Marines Saga used to be 奔馬 uick and Last to Die uiet I truly felt bad for her and although I could not connect with her in any other way I m glad she became Night Moves understanding of the situationI did expect better from this one I remember when I first added it to my tbr last year and how I was very excited for it because I knew it was a contemporary that featured mental health but I guess either the romance was in the way or the very obvious plot twist that just needed some working to be done The writing could also Dark Tide Rising William Monk #24 use some improvement Nothing that s out of the generation but it felt too middle grade and no YA aspects were felt while reading it Triggercontent warning for panic attacks PTSD and some physical abuse
