While this book was beautiful as well as being a useful look at autism before we began to understand it I think it is completely inappropriate for the age range for whom it was written Reviews suggest grades 5 8 The serious subject matter references to sex and a resulting pregnancy and a very horrific ending make this book only appropriate for a YA audience That audience must also be comfortable with a dark tale that has no real resolution In general I found this book too gloomy to be enjoyable

The Silent BoyPecial who has a way of communicating with the animals through his sounds and movements   And only Katy comes to realize what the gentle silent boy did for his family He meant to help not harm It didn't turn out that w. I originally thought that The Silent Boy was a mid grade novel The protagonists Katy tells the story about her childhood when she was 8 through 10 years old It is a lyrical story as Lowry expertly does set during the pre war years of 1910 and 1911 The silent boy is the brother of Katy's family maid The story is very powerful in creating the relationship between Katy and Jacob given that Jacob is touched and cannot speak Despite their lack of dialogue and never getting into Jacob's head I felt like I knew Jacob I certainly cared about what happened to him from the very first chapter Towards the end the plot veers off into rather mature issues making me think my middle school daughter is not going to read this book at least not yet I do recommend it nonetheless to high schoolers who should not be put off by the young age of the narrator It is a simple but haunting talebetter than the Giver in my view

Ugh this was such paint by numbers historical fiction Little girl ahead of her time She wants to be a doctor like her daddy vaguely uaint descriptions of daily life Time to harness the horses and hang the laundry awkwardly inserted Important Historical Events The Triangle Shirtwaist fire The first car in town Special Lessons Guess where babies come from The hired girl's brother is touched It has that vacuous invented middle class sense of nostalgia we associate with the 50s And it really bothered me that the silent boy isn't silent nor is the story actually about him Though it could have been a cool story told from his perspective Points for taking the really obvious scandal a lot darker than I expected otherwise I might have lost interest by the endFor girly Americana that really sticks to your ribs try something by Karen Hesse or Karen Cushman Or a classic like To Kill a Mockingbird
