2019 Read Harder Challenge 1224 halfway Task 9 A book published prior to January 1 2019 with fewer than 100 reviews on Goodreads This A book published prior to January 1 2019 with fewer than 100 reviews on Goodreads This REALLY stressed me out Because I have no chill and am taking this challenge too seriously I am not and have never been an early adopter Of anything I literally cannot make a decision without reading twenty thousand reviews first So in the end I searched every book on the NPR Best of 2018 list and found the only one that somehow never gained widespread traction Because I have no chill I was prepared to search every major best of list over the past ten years just so that I didn t have to make this decision alone This book currently clocks in at 223 ratings but only 79 reviews The book itself was B O R I N G I could not get into it My biggest issue was that the characters were very one dimensional it switches between two narrators but I honestly couldn t tell the difference between them NPR lied to me they said the characters would jump off the page It also got too explain y in the dialogue It is really great to have a young adult book tackle issues on race poverty etc but I wish the author would have covered it in the narration instead of the dialogue There was too much You don t understand me because I m a girl and girls do these very specific girl things that I m now going to describe to you It was awkward No one talks like that It s 1980 and Carson wants to win Battle of the Bands to get a free trip to NYC But first he needs a band That s the basic premise of this book but it s so so much than that Carson is a Tuscarora Indian living on a reservation and at the very beginning of the book his brother is shot and injured when he robs a local restaurant a restaurant named after and honoring George Custer famous Indian iller This starts in motion a social justice movement that will have impact beyond what Carson could have imaginedMagpie and her family have just moved back to the Reservation after years of living as City Indians As Maggi relearns the ways of the Rez she also starts a job working at the school cleaning school buses and develops a crush on a white man twice her age who also seems interested in her As Maggi and Carson s stories intertwine the book explores much to do with race and the relationship between white people and Indians This is a complex story with characters that will stay with me for a long time At times I wondered where the narratives were going but when they came together everything fit into place This is a novel with a strong sense of time and place using the Beatles specifically John Lennon and Yoko Ono to tie everything together Although we re revisiting characters from Gansworth s previous teen novel If I Ever Get Out of Here this story stands on its own Hand this book to fans of John Green *s thoughtful teen characters and teens interested in music andor social justice Give Me Some Truth is one * thoughtful teen characters and teens interested in music andor social justice Give Me Some Truth is one those books where I could easily bump this to three stars but then I remember how much I disliked reading it 2 stars it isFirst and foremost Give Me Some Truth definitely does some things right It s an own voices story set on and around a Native American reservation and really engages with the culture and lifestyle of the place and its people The novel has a very interesting structure built around The Beatles John Lennon and Yoko Ono and they re strongly tied to musical and artistic elements of the story The narrative also looks at racism against Native Americans in the early 80s and how different people dealt with that All that stuff was cool no complaintsThen there s the parts I didn t enjoy and the bad outweighed the good for me My main thing was that I didn t like the main characters The POV

SWITCHES BETWEEN TWO DIFFERENT CHARACTERS MAGGI 
between two different characters Maggi Carson I was fairly indifferent towards Maggi but Carson was just annoying I m not saying that Gansworth s depiction was unrealistic of some 17 year old boys but there wasn t really anything that redeemed Carson s selfishness And c mon this novel is 400 pages long That s not just a long novel for what it is but it was too long Nothing happened for the first 100150 pages and it dragged Coincidentally it also took me a solid 150 to properly adjust to the writing style I don t Maid of Dishonor (The Wedding Season, know what it was about it but I just didn t click with it As in I was having to re read sentences And then there s Maggi s storyline It doesn t really fall into the category of things I liked or the things I didn t like but I lean toward didn t like Because it involves a relationship between a 15 year old girl and a man in his early 30s So did it make me wildly uncomfortable Yes But the novel did make it clear that thisind of relationship is not okay Yet that was Dem Nordpol am nächsten kind of negated by the fact there is a relationship between a 17 year old girl and her former teacher and they re still together and happy by the end of the novel The thing I did appreciate about Maggi s storyline was that Gansworth stuck with. Carson Mastick is entering his senior year of high school and desperate to make his mark on the reservation and off A rock band and winning the local Battle of the Bands with its first prize of a trip to New York City is his best shot But thingseep getting in the way Small matters like the lack of an Give Me Some Truth

Racters There s such a mix of stakes at play here will these teens win their battle of the bands Will Maggi have sex for the first time with a shady older these teens win their battle of the bands Will Maggi have sex for the first time with a shady older will white people honor native treaties and respect native culture And yet every level of conflict is ultimately so compellingThis is such a good example of a YA historical fiction being grounded in a specific time and place this isn t just set in 1980 because the author grew up then and didn t want to deal with cell phones it s set in 1980 because of the political pop culture context of specifically John Lennon s life and death and Yoko Ono s lifeA great read particularly specifically John Lennon s life and death and Yoko Ono s lifeA great read particularly teens who ar Wow so this was great I started to draft a long largely incoherent love letter to this book and then I remembered Debbie Reese had this to say about Eric Gansworth s first young adult novel If I Ever Get Out of Here which is both authoritative and better written than my ramblings This isn t a series but there is some overlap in the two books Anyway I thought this book was even better than If I Ever Get Out of Here and I loved the stuffing out of that book Give Me Some Truth is moving funny and amazing in every possible way Unpretenti 35 starsThis is a story told in dual POV the 15 year old Maggi and the 17 year old Carson both native American teens Tuscarora Nation ownvoices living on a reservation near Niagra Falls and the border with Canada in 1980My audiobook subscription ends the third and I really wanted to be able to finish this still I m glad I did I am however sad that due to me listening to it I didn t get to see the visual art Something that made me extremely uncomfortable was the fact that Jim a thirty year old guy from Maggi s work preyed on her Maggi was drawn to him too he played his part well and all their interactions made me feel dirty SPOILER they end up being in a relationship Heart Beat kiss fondle and even plan but don t go through bc Maggi changes her mind having sex END SPOILERI liked the story but i wonder why i always pick band and music related books when i myself have very little affinity for music Either way i thought it was pretty cool that all the chapter titles were song titles too I liked Lewis and the other supporting characters I loved the sister relationship and it was also interested reading about twins that weren t that close they did everything together or even talked a lotCarson wasind of an ass and I would have liked him developing I did absolutely love the substory of resistance protest and fighting against racism and injusticeAlso pretty cool that art also in the way of music of course was such a big part of the book Both as inspiration for the characters and them actually creating itContent warning for racism gun wound discussion about sex alcohol abuse ableism mentions of genitals and the aforementioned thing of the thirty year old This YA coming of age novel discusses what it s like growing up as a Native teenager immersed both in the world of the rez and settler society what makes this book special is that Gansworth who works as "A Visual Artist As "visual artist as also merges storytelling with music without needing a single note to do so Set in 1980 and named after a song by John Lennon the book tells the story of high school senior Carson Mastick who dreams of winning the Battle of Bands and get off the Tuscarora Nation Reservation To give his band a special sound he recruits 15 year old Magpie Bokoni a traditional drummer who just moved back to the rez with her family Told in alternating chapters the story slowly reveals multiple challenges Carson and Maggi face while preparing for their most important gig There s a racist store owner who shoots Carson s brother the artistic business of Maggi s family that depends on tourists buying their beadwork Maggi s twisted relationship with a much older white man and much Unfortunately the book didn t manage to fully hold my attention and I think there are mainly two reasons for this 1 Joshua Whitehead ruined me for all indigenous coming of age novels because Jonny Appleseed is perfection he intended to write it as YA but it was ultimately released as general literary fiction probably because of its explicit sexual content and complex structure 2 This is higly accessible writing for a young audience and I m a literary snob which is not Gansworth s fault or problem I have to admit that I skipped large parts in the middle because the writing didn t seem dense enough to me but again I am not the target audienceAnd this is why I am happy that there are books like this one that discuss important issues in a way that teenagers can understand them no 13 year old would want to read House Made of Dawn but in many respects Gansworth touches upon the same issues The way he remixes the Beatles John Lennon and Yoko Ono in this book give it a special edge and the novel exudes love for music and artistic crafts So if you are into YA and pop culture this is certainly a worthwhile rea. Eeling out of place in her new old home and stop being treated like a child She might like to fall in love for the first time too Carson and Maggi along with their friend Lewis will navigate loud protests even louder music and first love in this novel about coming together in a world defined by differenc. It so long and depicted it from Maggi s POV He showed how easy it was for Maggi to get swept up in this relationship and how easy it was for her to ignore the problems All the same the relationship only ended right before the close of the novel and I didn t like how it was handled Honestly it seemed to sympathise with the old dude and then the novel just ended a couple pages later I didn t like the handling of the end of the relationship nor the end of the novel Ultimately I don t think Give Me Some Truth is an awful book but I definitely didn t like it If is an awful book but I definitely didn t like it If novel was shorter the ending longer and the *writing somehow clearer I think I would have enjoyed this There s a lot going on in * somehow clearer I think I would have enjoyed this There s a lot going on in storyI didn t latch on to any of itThis is a tale of some pretty unpleasant people There s Carson an overly self involved 17 year old who likes to tell himself stories to explain why he manipulates everyone around him There s Maggi who is about as nuanced as a Kristin Stewart character and is entering her sexual awakening with about as much gusto aswell a Kristin Stewart characterview spoilerCarson has a brother Derek who starts the book by getting shot in the ass That s a background story that becomes important but then fizzles out and changes to a supporting theme He s also got a friend whom he views as a minion named Louis Lewis Carson wants Louis to join his band but never actually asks Instead he jumps through these ridiculous hoops to make Louis want to join the band of his own accord Carson has grand Battle of the Bands plans but apparently Louis can t The Site Book know about that until he s on board Louis has an uncle named AlbertJuniper a Vietnam War vet with whom he shares a room and all his thoughts and secrets Carson s father is abusive and his mother is there but rarely mentioned Carson is a fine seamstress which probably should have been important but was just a thing the readernows about him until it s time to think about college Carson has decided Maggi is hot and is hisMaggi has a sister Marie who is dating an older man Their mother has a mental illness the girls call Dark Deanna Their dad who is about as present as Carson s mom lives on the reservation in a shack which is where family moves back to at the beginning of the story leaving the city behind Maggi is an artist who wants to get away from traditional beading to work in her own style Oh Maggi also has a twin brother named Marvin who also does art and it seems that would be pretty important and it d The two best things about GIVE ME SOME TRUTH are the setting and the music I very much liked Gansworth s first book that grew from this 1970 s Indian reservation IF I EVER GET OUT OF HERE This one truly puts the reader there showing both the grimness and the beauty of the community Also most of the The Devils Possession kids in TRUTH are exactly my age their senior year was my senior year And even growing up in a very different community half a county away I recognized this time Not just through the excellent playlist but in the attitudes of racism and sexism This book did some things better and truer than most books speaking of important issues Both Carson and Maggi felt like their respective ages Not some overly self aware versions of teens spouting clever observations that tend to populate the recent glut of important YA fiction Something I ve been sensitive to in this age of metoo and Own Voices is how periodids are suddenly spouting twenty first century battle cries view spoilerAs painful as it was to watch Maggi s infatuation with her predator felt very genuine I very much remember how flattering it felt to have the eyes of older men checking my under age body out And I was both naive and luckier than Maggi Her reaction until perhaps the end felt so fifteen year old girl hide spoiler 1 star No just noGenerallyI did not plan to read this book at all but I did and that might be my biggest regret in 2019 and I read many dumb books this year CharactersBoth MC s were plain annoying I did not hate them and had no real emotions towards them The male MC was so toxic His gender stereotypes were unbearable to read and I generally hated following him along He was neither likable or had any reasonable motivations in life except getting this one girl laid he likes so much and playing musicThe female MC was worse She war far worse At the beginning until the end she dates a guy who is about double her age SHE IS FIFTEEN Yes you are correct We all smell Pedophilia here Their relationship is so weird and actually child abuse but hey PlotI cannot talk about it that much because honestly I stopped paying attention around 100 pages in It was mostly about those poor Betraying Beauty (Vegas Titans, kids making stupid decisions nearly ruining their lives I mostly followed the romance plot along and the book could have been shortened a good chunk because most details felt very irrelevant to everything happening This book was a little slow to grab me but I definitely became very invested in these cha. Ctual band or the fact that his brother just got shot confronting the racist owner of a local restaurant Maggi Bokoni has just moved back to the reservation from the city with her family She's dying to stop making the same traditional artwork her family sells to tourists conceptual stuff is cooler stop
