Rasp on the character that is Nathan L HenryHowever the *book is not without its flaws One of the biggest flaws that I ve seen the most criticism on is *is not without its flaws One of the biggest flaws that I ve seen the most criticism on is the lack of visible character growth In his time as a prisoner we see him as a racist sexist bloodthirst teen then a calm collected but still prone to anger inmate and then suddenly he s reformed with absolutely no explanation behind it We re led to believe that his time in prison changed him but aside from the lack of his vulgarity due to his limitations we see no real change He doesn t visibly grow enough for s to relate with it As he skips through his time at prison focusing on his time leading p to it he never really elaborates enough on his growth for s to realize he s growing Nonetheless his growth for The Hate U Give us to realize he s growing Nonetheless time he spent in prison has though not shown well enough changed him Aside from this admittedly major flaw I still say that Nathan L Henry s novel Good Behavior was a phenomenal Non Fiction book that kept me reading to the very end and even coming back for I would heavily recommend it to anyone who seems interested in this book and can tolerate the heavy vulgarity In my opinion if the glaring weakness that this book has was resolved it would be a perfect book in my eyes There are absolutely nootes that I wanted to save from this book which is a rarity I am happy the young man turned his life around while he was in jail and was horrified at the things he did growing Building Vocabulary Skills up Nathan Henry got lucky He had grownp in a small town in an atmosphere of fear and had a well developed sense of self preservation and a penchant for violence He identified as a bad ass and a Satanist and cultivated the personality to go along with the tough image He was headed for serious trouble and when he was caught for armed robbery he spent a year in county jail Because of his age and the nature of his crime Nate was tried as an adult But thanks to his lawyer and an Sheet Metal Shop Practice understanding judge he was able to serve his sentence in the county jail where he was kept relatively isolated from other offenders instead of going to prison where truly bad things could have happened to him Nate had nothing but time during his incarceration and hesed it to expand his mind reading taking GED classes talking to other people His good behavior got him out early and his new outlook on life helped him to develop a different attitude toward the world His memoir is gritty but gripping and some parts are hard to read animal abusekillingdisdain for womenlack of empathy for other human beings He makes a strong case for youthful ignorance and not knowing any better but it s disturbing to think how many other young people raised in similar environments with similar pressures might come out with this kind of dangerous ignorance Pairing and Overview I will pair the book Good Behavior by Nathan Henry with the book Monster Both texts depict a young adult male in jail the protagonist in Monster is not guilty of his charge but Henry recalls real life crimes he did commit and his experience after being tried as an adult Both texts present accurate portrayals that should hopefully deter teens from a delinuent lifestyle1 Book Citation Henry Nathan L Good Behavior New York Bloomsbury 20102 Audience Junior and senior high students who have an interest in crime and violence and recovery Stories such as this often appeal to Cait and the Devil urban teens but this one may appeal to a wider audience because Henry is from a small town 3 Selection Criteria Good Behavior is a recent text that contains the factual firsthand experiences ofick read memoir Chapters alternate between nate s life leading p to his crime and imprisonment and then his time in prison His childhood will break your heart Some mentions of prison rape mostly nate s fear of it not graphic Also mentions Wn in rural Indiana Nate's personal history is both disturbing and fascinating A rough childhood becomes an adolescence full of half realized violent fantasies that slowly build to the breaking point But these scenes alternate with chapters about Nate's time in jail where thr. Interesting but I didn t Feel That Nate S Life that Nate s life to a presumably law abiding educated well adjusted member of the community was very well explained considering that he was sociopathic ntil he served his year in prison was the incarceration sufficient to cause him to completely change If so why is there so much recidivismThis book was shelved in the TEEN section at the Marion library I was flabbergasted OMG I hardly think the material presented here is suitable fodder for young minds at least those younger than sixteen or so Biggles In The Antarctic unless they arenusually mature Nate is one of those people WHO CAN T SEEM TO UTTER can t seem to An Unofficial Encyclopedia of Strategy for Fortniters utter complete sentence without including a four letter word He tortures and dismembers small animals for fun he employs violence on a whim he sees females as primarily instruments of his own pleasure and he speaks casually of killing people I think he could easily have perpetrated a Columbine style assault on his school since he hated everything about it except possibly art I can imagine how a parent might reactpon stumbling across this book in their child s possession If this is the kind of literature being recommended for teenagers nowadays no wonder teens seem to have so many problems becoming well adjusted members of society GOOD BEHAVIOR a memoir by Nate Henry tells the story of his year in jail for armed robbery This was an adult jail but Nate was only sixteen He was no stranger to trouble and in this memoir he alternates chapters among his year in jail the year leading p to his crime and scenes from earlier in his childhood that somewhat explain how a boy from a one stop light town in rural Indiana finds himself in this predicament It is gritty graphic and often disturbing I found parts of it nearly impossible to read but was drawn through it by the hope that he would find a way out I won t spoil it but let s just say that the jail librarian is instrumentalWhat I took from this book than the story itself was the way in which it was told He maintained a primarily chronological structure in the alternating chapters so although the book jumps back and forth in time the reader always knows where she is because he tells the different stories in a this happened then this happened order Within this framework there were a few flashbacks but the story was carried forward by the passage of time We knew he d either get out of jail or be sent to prison We knew he d eventually be arrested and go to jail We knew he grew to at least the age of sixteen All of this pulls the reader along We are also pulled along by the estion of what exactly happened since he teases Girls Und Panzer, vol. 1 us by referring to the day he set the school on fire and the night the police chased down he and his friend Phillip before he actually tells the eventsThis book is not for the faint of heart but it s definitely worth the read Good Behavior by Nathan L Henry is a memoir of the authors year he served in prison for armed robbery at the age of 16 while also jumping back to his life leadingp to it and what caused him to become what he was when he committed his crime This book is a great memoir and is one of the few non fiction books that has kept me interested and kept me readingHowever this book is not suitable for all ages This book is heavily focused on Henry s childhood which is not a healthy one Topics such as the brutal details of killing woodland animals nderage Sex And Prostitution Fighting Rapes Murder And and prostitution fighting rapes murder and are all but common in this book Henry does not spare any detail talking about the events that shaped him into the kid who robbed a gas station at gunpoint before getting into a car chase in a car he stole from his parents While these parts are graphic and vulgar they are crucially important to the story at hand and important to s as the reader to get a Jailed at age sixteen for armed robbery Nathan Henry was the kind of teenager most parents and teachers have nightmares about His crime was the culmination of a life lived on the edge guns and drugs sex and violence all set against the ordinary backdrop of a one stop light to. ,
