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 up 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 uestion of what exactly happened since he teases 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

So I was strolling in the YA section of my local library one afternoon after work and saw this book I didn t even read the inside flap before I knew that I would give it a chance Anyway I m glad I didThis is a nonfiction memoir about a year that the author served in prison at the age of 16 for armed robbery In between the chapters of the descriptions of mind numbing dullness of prison life there are chapters that detail the author s life leading up to his crime which are highly disturbing to say the least The author s childhood was very dysfunctional with incidences such as the torture of animals casual violence underage sex and racism His lack of conscience as he does these things and other forms of cruelty made him an unlikable person yet I realized early on that he is just as much of a victim as a villain here Nathan s father is abusive as well beating and psychologically tormenting his familyAlthough this book is labeled YA I wouldn t recommend it for everyone in that age range Nor would I advocate taking any of the brutal details out either as they re absolutely critical in understanding why the author ended up in prison The only thing I didn t like about this book is the way that the emotional change of the author was portrayed here While we know that prison did change him and he s certainly not the same as before very few details are given on when and how the exact moment of this realization occurs For a person as rotten as the author was these details are important Definitely do recommend this book Not for the faint of heart though

I just finished reading the book Good Behavior by Nathan L Henry for my PIG class This is a memoir about main character Nate Henry who is 16 years old He tells the story in first person about his life in jail from armed robbery and his rough life that led him there Every other chapter is what he s currently doing while every other chapter is a flashback to his rough childhood Nate grew up with his parents and his brother I think that Nate s father is at fault for his psychotic issues Throughout his flashbacks Nathan describes how his dad got entertainment out of scaring him when he was 5 saying how people will come kill him in his sleep His dad also expected violence and thought that homicide was humorous Nate s fathers stories gave him psychotic paranoia which turned into fear then anger then frustration Sooner later he got a fetish for weapons just like his dad Nate started imagining himself as Hitler while having thoughts about killing animals kids and bombing the school While also dealing with his crazy father Nate s mother was the only one that worked and they weren t wealthy at all They barely had anything Throughout the story Nate comes in contact and deals with many other guys in prison that have done way worse things than him Dealing with these people Nate realizes how he becomes ashamed and realizes he doesn t want to waste the rest of his life in prison While in prison Nate read a lot of books from the jail s library to make the time go by He even copied a whole book down so he could keep rereading it While doing this he explained how a whole new world opened up for him with writing and he wanted to be a part of it This is where he started writing a story which is now published as his memoir Good Behavior I definitely think that Nate s father was the reason he had psychological issues and through the memoir he realized how that s affected him all his life I wish Nate realized that before he wound up in jail but I m glad he did when he was still young and even though he was in jail he didn t let that get the best of him and give up on life Instead he tried to turn himself around Being Nate s age I think this was a great book and I recommend it It only took me 3 days to read and it kept making me want to read It has a uniue writing style with the flashbacks and it shows how bad people are bad for a reason and everyone has a story It s a great book with a good life lesson
