The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson

The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson

This book has been out for awhile, but I have been reluctant to read it. I have read other books by Laurie Halse Anderson, and I have liked those. The premise to this book did not pull me in like other books of hers. This book is about Hayley. Hayley and her dad have finally settled down after years spent as a trucker and being homeschooled. Her dad is a veteran whose past keeps coming back. This keeps him constantly trying to block it out with alcohol and other substances. Throughout the book Hayley has to navigate High School as a new Senior and figure out how to help her dad. As everything is falling apart Hayley must figure out herself and her feelings towards the other people in her life. This book is not bad, but it was slow to read and there was not a lot of action. This book was good in the way that it showed the way war and coming home from it can effect people and their family. I would recommend this book to people if they are interested in the effect of war on people or other books by Laurie Halse Anderson. If this book is interesting to you, then you would like If I Lie by Corrine Jackson.
