When We Were Animals review ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF When Lumen Fowler looks back on her childhood she wouldn't have guessed she would become a kind suburban wife a devoted mother In fact she never thought she would escape her small and peculiar hometown When We Were Animals is Lumen's confessional as a well behaved and over achieving teenager she fell bene. 45 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum hearing about this book from so many people I just knew I had to experience it for myself And now that I ve read it When We Were Animals may well be the most interesting book to hit my shelves this year I m still finding it difficult to categorize this unconventional coming of age tale which combines elements from a variety of genres including mystery paranormal and horrorMost of the story is told in retrospect as protagonist Lumen Fowler looks back on her childhood growing up in a small uiet Midwestern town with a big dark secret For a few nights every month during the full moon the town s teenagers run naked and free through the streets like animals seized by a mysterious and uncontrollable urge known as breaching Every resident of this town has gone through it and know to also expect it in their children which typically coincides with puberty and lasts about a year Breaching is just something everybody goes through an unavoidable and natural fact of life about growing up in this townBut is it really inevitable Lumen hardly remembers her mother who died when she was very little but she is intrigued by the stories her father tells about how Lumen s mother never went breach Always the good girl the high achiever who never gets in trouble or gives cause for worry Lumen makes a promise to her father that she will never breach either determined not to succumb to the call of her baser instincts and join her peers in the unrestrained orgies of sex violence and wild abandon during the full moonsIt doesn t take much reading between the lines to figure out When We Were Animals is an allegory for growing up specifically for the tumultuous period when a young person transitions from adolescence to adulthood What fascinated me is the story s ability to illustrate a range of perceptions towards the concept of breaching Residents seem both proud and ashamed that such a phenomenon is uniue to their town and parents of breaching teenagers treat it with a mixture reverence and trepidation while children both dread and look forward to the day when they too will be called It is beautiful and magical but also messy and frightening What everyone in Lumen s hometown can agree on though is that breaching is an important rite of passage once you enter and emerge from the other side childhood ends and the journey to adulthood beginsWhat singlehandedly made this book so great was the character of Lumen whose personality gives this coming of age story an even uniue spin Small and unassuming our protagonist isn t someone who would stand out in a crowd At school she would be the one hanging out on the edges of a group the girl you don t really notice is there Ironically the fact that she s different from the other kids just makes her even invisible and being a late bloomer doesn t help either widening the divide between her and her peersLumen s introspective nature means that this is a very personal narrative light on plot but heavy on character She loves to read and learn and her very unusual way of looking at things made it so that I hung on her every word This story isn t the kind where a lot of things happen and instead emphasizes internal dialogue over action But I was captivated by it nonetheless In Lumen I saw not only a teenager struggling to find her identity but also a girl trying to reconcile her desires to fit in and yet still stand out from the rest It s a motivating factor in all that she does whether it s asking her dad for stories about her mom or looking up definitions of her peculiar name It shines a new light on her determination not to go breach which becomes than just a way to connect to the mother she never knew Not breaching ultimately becomes something she hopes can define her an achievement she can call her own and make a part of herselfI was completely charmed by Lumen who is now an adult in a new town with a new name with her own family telling us about her past This is what made the audiobook such a pleasure to listen to The only downside was sometimes not knowing whether we re in the past or present since the transitions weren t always obvious in the audio but the narration was simply fantastic My praise goes to narrator Suehyla El Attar bringing Lumen to life Her voice became the character s voice and after that it was just a matter of letting go and allowing the story to transport you to another time another placeAt times eerie and unsettling at others powerful and heartwarming When We Were Animals has a lot to say about topics like independence and teenage rebellion and peer pressure There are the moments that disturbed and horrified me many of which are related to the descriptions of what goes on when the teenagers were breaching but there were also scenes that touched me especially those featuring the closeness between Lumen and her father This an absolutely fantastic and well executed story about the stark realities of human nature and growing up I m still reeling from the rollercoaster of emotions
