When We Were Vikings

Download When We Were Vikings ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read & Download Ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Þ Andrew David MacDonald Read When We Were Vikings Sometimes life isn’t as simple as heroes and villains For Zelda a twenty one year old Viking enthusiast who lives with her older brother Gert life is best lived with some basic rules 1 A smile means “thank you for doing something small that I liked” 2 Fist bumps and dabs respect 3 Strange people are not appreciated in her home 4. I absolutely loved being inside of Zelda s mind Zelda a high functioning young adult diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome has something about her that everyone can relate to While exploring life s boundaries she often compares her world to the Viking world Though others consider Zelda not normal she considers her life a uest and strives to fulfill her legacy while searching for identity battling for independence and overcoming life s villains I told him that I was used to it People call me a retard all the time Her older brother and caregiver Gert really pulled on my heart strings as well He doesn t always make the right decisions but I felt like he had good intentions Gert truly represents the depth and complexity of life s unexpected turns Gert s character speaks volumes and it is difficult to fully love him or fully hate him We do not have very much money but Gert is powerful at surviving life s battles Sexual freedom among the cognitively disabled is a topic explored in this novel Zelda has intimate feelings for her boyfriend and wants to explore those feelings like most other young adults would Please note that there is a long segment on this topicThe language was very colorful and I loved it Zelda often utilizes her Word of the Day but she also mimics the language of her peers and environment As a result this book is filled with adult language but it made it so much palpable Those people the ones who don t trust Gert are shit heels and fuck dicks because Gert is one of the smartest people I know and the bravest I think this book will create excellent conversations and highly recommend it for a buddy read or group read It has several controversial topics and covers a lot of current issues with cognitively disabled young adults Though sensitive in subject areas if you do have a respectful and close reading group it would inspire valuable discussion And sometimes the heroes of legends have to break the rules in order to save the people they care about What are the differences between responsibility and accountability How do we decide where accountability falls Can someone who loves you be bad for you I really enjoyed this book and couldn t put it down The last chapter especially the very last page had me in tears I think we can all learn many lessons from Zelda Thank you GalleryScout Press NetGalley and Andrew David MacDonald for this copy Opinions are my ownMore on these topicsLiving with Fetal Alcohol SyndromeCognitive Disability and SexualityEmployment with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

I m surprised how much I enjoyed this book I figured it d be a 2 3 star read for me and I m glad it exceeded my expectationsThe main character Zelda is a young woman with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome She is obsessed with Vikings and makes sense of her world and herself by comparing them to Vikings She is such an enjoyable vibrant and likable character and I found myself drawn to her from the first page As another friend noted in her review the book felt derivative of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time Often that is a turn off for me even when I loved the first book as I did Curious Incident However this one still worked and I didn t want to put it down It s different enough that it felt original As Zelda learns to become an independent adult she strives to live according to Viking ideals especially when it comes to putting her tribe first and being brave When events begin spiraling out of control Zelda uses the lessons she s learned from studying Vikings to give her courage to confront the challenges that arise Engaging and heart warming this is a beautifully rendered novel with characters who jump right out of the pages When used to describe a book the term heart warming is usually a big red flag that I won t like it However for this one it worked
