    It was probably about two thirds through this book that I broke down sobbing on the couch.My mother has Alzheimer s I was very close with her, my family moved back home at great expense both personal and emotional to help take care of her, and, as I write this, she has been in a nursing home for well over two years after having been given less than half of that to live The Memory Wall is about a kid, Nick, having to deal with a similar situation He s very young and his mother also has Alzhe

    3.5 stars I was unsure about this when I read its description Half A Monster Calls sounded like something I wouldn t want to miss, but also unlikely, or at least like I would possibly be setting myself up for disappointment Still I went for it And I m happy I did I find it slightly disturbing because I have this fear that one day I ll suffer from early onset Alzheimer s, and I find the notion quite scary Otherwise it a wonderful story, very compassionate and believable I liked it a lot I

    My testament to how much I liked this book should be in the beginnings of tears in my eyes and the ache in my chest I liked this book a LOT I should, however, state a disclaimer about how I don t know any people who have Alzheimer s, nor am I a mixed race person who has to deal with it on a daily basis, so any glaring issues concerning faux paus of any of those things they may have passed me by Nick as a character is someone I want to hold up and say this, do it like this The balance of im

    Nick Reeves is a young middle schooler that has had some trouble in his life recently His mother has had some problems with her memory, and was later diagnosed with an illness Nick is in denial, and believes that it was a misdiagnosis He uses his video games to get away from the real world, and because he could do practically whatever he wants in them The book is a young adult fantasy genre, and is very interesting This book is very well written, but seems to be forced at some times, but no

    A boy in denial about his mother s early onset Alzheimers Check that strong denial Double check that extreme mind numbingly I will refuse to believe anything you say denial But then thats how people hope with that sort of news There s a double narrative of him playing the video game which does tend to drag on I started skim it when it started to get too lengthy so I really feel that whole bit could have been skipped There s also the side aspect of him being mixed which I really liked how t

    When his mother is put in a long term care facility for early onset Alzheimer s, Nick s only escape from reality comes in the form of the video game Wellhall As he plays his character, Severkin, he meets a dark elf who he could swear is his mother Her mannerisms, speech, and skill reminds is very similar Unfortuantely, no one in the game uses their real name Could his mother s diagnosis be a mistake Is his mom trying to reach out to him The characters in this book are easy to sympathize wi

    This was an interesting read on how one teen deals with his mother s diagnosis of early Alzheimer s and her move to a care facility Part of the story unfolds in an immersive computer game he used to play with his mother The book also ties in elements of bullying, standing up for one s self and growing up biracial East Berlin and the fall of the Berlin Wall are also elements in the story.

    I wish it was a little condensed it got sort of slow and faltered a little at the end.
