CHARACTERS ´ YESHLER.RU ☆ Wendy Phillips FREE READ Ü Fishtailing Wendy Phillips ☆ 1 FREE READ A new high school she befriends three unwitting victims into her spider web of manipulations lies and deceit Through the poetry and assignments of an English class we glimpse the world of the four teens Natalie whose alcoholic parents years of neglect and ultimate rape by her father's friend has shaped her into a cruel and manipulative teen; Tricia dealing with. So I kind of wished I had read the plot description before I began reading this novel I mean I did read the one on the back of the novel but it s in a lot less detail so as soon as I began reading I had no idea what was really going on since I knew next to nothing about the characters except their names and that they attended high school That s not exactly much to go on and for me whenever I start reading a book I like to have some sort of basis for what I m getting myself into but nonetheless I did finally learn about the character s backgrounds as I read and everything became so much clearerFishtailing is definitely a novel I would consider a bit out of my element Told completely in free verse it centers around the lives of four teenagers Natalie Tricia Kyle and Miguel and how their lives intersect beginning with how they share an English class together Depressed Tricia is torn by her mixed heritage and finds herself drawn into Natalie s dark world as she becomes closer friends with the new girl The always uiet Miguel harbours a dark secret from his past but find himself attracted to Natalie And then the most normal of the bunch Kyle has a major crush on Tricia but finds himself at odds about his future and following his dreams to become a musicianIt only took me just over an hour to read Fishtailing but I was surprised by how dark the novel turned out to be In so few words Wendy Phillips writes a gritty tale of four teens struggling to deal with life and their circumstances To put it mildly they re very troubled but no one is there to really help them I ll only exclude Kyle because I saw him rather as a beacon of hope and honestly if it weren t for him lightening up the moments with his strong feelings for Tricia it could have been an outright depressing read The adults particularly their English teacher just have no idea how these teens are really feelingIt was rather difficult for me to think of how to rate the novel since the way it s written is different than what I m used to so it s not like I have something to compare it by to other novels told in free verse style but I think three stars is still the safe bet since I did find myself liking itIf you think you re up for a uick read that takes you out of your reading comfort zone I think Fishtailing will be right up your alley Once you get into the style of writing you won t set the book down transfixed by this hard hitting tale set in Western Canada that Wendy Phillips seems to effortlessly weave Fishtailing is nominated for the 2011 White Pine Award and and is the 2010 recipient of the Governor General s Literary Award for Children s Literature English text
