    1 thought on “How I Became a Teenage Survivalist”

    1. “Bracken is a typical teenage boy, more interested in the angles of the girl’s exposed back teasing him from the seat ahead of him than in anything the geometry teacher could present. His life is filled with school, video games, and thoughts of girls, not necessarily in that order. Life just flows along uneventfully and unacknowledged, like the electricity that courses through the power lines — until PF (Power Failure) Day.”Finally a book written from the perspective of a boy. Bracken, a [...]

    2. I grew up on a farm in the middle of the country surrounded by rice fields and cattle pastures. Living off the land has always just been a way of life to me. I’m always surprised when I see people from, like Portland or San Francisco, who have just discovered growing gardens for food, like it was their idea or something. Nope, it’s been around forever. We’ve just become so spoiled to grocery stores and supermarkets. I love the open space of the country. It’s real freedom.Anyways, this bo [...]

    3. How Would Your family cope if there suddenly was no electricity – not just for a few days but for months? What do you do when the conveniences we all take for granted are suddenly unusable ? Julie Casey has written a provocative book about one family's efforts to survive when the unthinkable happens. Realizing that his family is fortunate to live in the countryside instead of in a crowded city, Bracken's thoughts turn from girls to ingenious ways to helping his family survive. From fighting of [...]

    4. What an intriguing book! How I Became A Teenage Survivalist is told as journal passages by a 15 year old boy named Bracken sharing the experiences of his family when the power goes out throughout the world. That means no video games, cars, or even a washing machine! (Poor Bracken's mom and her laundry troubles. As a mother, I guess I related to her a lot.) Once they realize the power isn't coming back on, they discover how to survive without it. I learned so much from this book, like how create [...]

    5. I'm hooked. It is one of the best I've read recently. The pace is perfect, the plot interesting, and the narration fluid. The narrator is a teenage boy who comes across as such. I can't imagine anyone will really find fault with this book. It inventive or entertaining which is awesome. The author need not strive for more.

    6. Bracken, a typical 16-year-old boy, with the typical teen-angst and growing pains, experiences a drastic change in his way of life when a solar super storm changes life as he knew it on his family's farm somewhere in the Midwest United States. It becomes a throwback to a simple life before electricity and modern conveniences. Bracken and his family 're-learn' to literally live off the landbutchering their own meat, exclusively growing their own fruits and vegetables, pumping their own water from [...]

    7. Bracken is a typical 16 year old living on a farm with his family in the Midwest when disaster strikes the nation. “A solar super storm” as the scientists call it hits the United States and with its exit takes all the electricity with it. Facing life without electricity and all of the conveniences that come with it such as gas for cars, heating, and being able to run health care machines, Bracken’s family steps up to the challenge and learn how to not only survive, but prosper without elec [...]

    8. This is a book I could not put down! It was so full of interesting ideas about survival but still had a storyline so relatable that I could imagine life in Bracken's world. It is a super read you don't want to miss!

    9. How I Became Teenage Survivalistby Julie L. CaseyBracken is a sixteen-year-old Midwest boy preoccupied with the normal teenage concerns. The background hum of his world revolves around farm life at home with his parents, school, the normal one-upmanship between him and his older brother Alex, his annoyance with his younger brother Calvin, and the inch of skin playing peek-a-boo between Silky Henderson’s belt line and shirt each time the girl leans forward.But all that changes drastically when [...]

    10. This is one of the better 'youth fiction' stories I've read in a long time. I really enjoyed the (dare I say) wholesome feel of the narration, characterised by the guileless sixteen-year-old Bracken relating his own and his family's experiences in a world unexpectedly bereft of electricity-based power and communications. Bracken and his family faced some definite challenges, but overall experienced a rather gentler and definitely more positive adjustment to the new conditions than many others. T [...]

    11. I got this as an early reviewer book. It is o w of the worst I've read recently. The pace is terrible, the plot simple, and the narration extreme monotonous. The narrator is a teenage boy who comes across as dull and boring. I can't imagine anyone will really find it inventive or entertaining which is sad as the author clearly was striving for more.

    12. I've decided that I need to learn to ride horses and shoot guns as these are the skills needed to survive the loss of our modern technology! I picked up this book because I know the author, Julie Casey, and I was eager to see her book. I enjoyed the story, though it did get bogged down in places. Glad I'm not still living in the "big city". Maybe I'll survive!

    13. Postapocalyptic tale of the world after a solar flare takes out the power grid. This one differs in that it's also a coming of age story told first person by a 16 year old boy. It kept me interested, though things seemed a bit rosy for this family, who lives on a farm in the country. Still, good characters and possibly just realistic enough.

    14. This book has eluded me for months. Even with greatly expanded borrowing privileges--thanks to new "circuit" library policies--I can't get my hands on it without buying it. As I have a thank-the-gods-there-are-libraries! book budget, I'm giving up for now.

    15. This book is so fascinating. And a little frightening too. It makes me think about how prepared I am for something like this. Not nearly prepared enough. Very thought provoking.
