The Place Inside the Storm Free read ¾ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ It’s 2038 and Tara Rivers is fourteen years old a bit rebellious and socially awkward Her family has recently moved to Los Angeles from the Pacific Northwest “rogue” clusters Tara feels alone and confused She doesn’t have any friends here exceNd her grandmother but first she must escape Los Angeles and the corporation with all their high tech locating devices dodge street gangs and wild dogs and traverse an unknown wilderness full of unimaginable dangers Will she ever find a place where she is accepted for who and what she is or is she doomed to be an outcast from society forever. With the topic of early biomarkers and pre natal testing popping up often in autism research the topic of the erasure and alteration of neurodiverse minds seems both ideal as a concept within a dystopian future and realistic possibility of something which could happen In 'The Place Inside The Storm' the reader follows Tara Rivers and the journey she undertakes after learning that her parents intend to give the go ahead for an implant created by The Corporation to be put in her brain that will change her behaviour and thoughts Feeling like she has no other choice Tara and her AI in the form of a cat Xel make a run for it With no real direction or plan a chance encounter leads them to Loki and Aeon and when it becomes clear that Loki has also suffered at the hand of The Corporation Tara Xel and Loki embark on the long journey back to where Tara used to live seeking help for Loki Along the way their destination and plans change and they become part of something biggerThe book is easy to read and engage with with uick paced action scenes interspaced with slower sections or sections with dialogue There is a sense of struggle in many scenes and even though Xel can literally access information from all over the place they still come up against obstacles and barriers they cannot completely avoid and have to scrap their way out ofThe characters are likeable and interesting with Xel being a stand out character as both Tara's friend and protector The bond between Tara and Xel and their interactions were done in such a way that their friendship was undeniable yet you never forgot that Xel was a robot cat and it worked The corporation also felt like a character it's oppressive presence being felt and referenced throughout the book Without succumbing to stereotypes the author creates a realistic portrayal of an autistic teenager His descriptions of Tara's impending meltdowns and her sensory overload come across as genuine and real and while she Tara does refer to eye contact or lack of a few too many times in that it becomes noticeable the scenarios in which it is discussed make sense Later in the book there is a section where information about autism is provided to Tara in a manner which ends up being a bit too info dumping and stilted and it jars the flow of the book for a few pages Overall though the rep is solidAlongside the physical journey that Tara undertakes there is a co running emotional journey that Tara makes towards understanding and accepting herself in a world that doesn't accept people who are too different Overall definitely enjoyed reading this

It’s 2038 and Tara Rivers is fourteen years old a bit rebellious and socially awkward Her family has recently moved to Los Angeles from the Pacific Northwest “rogue” clusters Tara feels alone and confused She doesn’t have any friends here except her cat Xel a sophisticated robot with artificial intelligence The corporation where Tara. 35This book caught my eye while perusing the “Read Now” options on my newly acuired NetGalley account Since I am constantly seeking new voices in my literary pursuits I embraced the chance to get to know a neurodivergent character What I liked Tara though thrust into a really trash situation manages not to completely break down immediately as I imagine I would have in her place Tara’s logic resourcefulness and determination shine She doesn’t always know what to do in social situations but she can write code well enough to alter the AI software of her pet bobcat Xel – an impressive feat on advanced technology Xel meanwhile is steadfast and caring and though his access to the Internet allows him to overcome human limitations in things like navigation he grows and learns about humans as well Tara must survive once she flees the corporation and survive she does with the help Xel people like who she might have been casualties of a desire to inflict corporate culture upon individuals and people who see the indecency and inhumanity in forced brain alteration luckily it’s not a small amount In a book about identity and acceptance that differences don’t need to be assimilated it’s wonderful to see some neurotypical people accommodating neurodivergent people’s needs rather than asking them to adhere to societal social standards It’s interesting to see a space where a lack of eye contact is considered the polite norm rather than asocial The things I didn’t like were perhaps on my end than anything I had a hard time suspending my disbelief about an attacking horde of rats in a sewer which leads to an important plot point but perhaps my knowledge of rats does not include that behavior I also thought the time frame a mere twenty years in the future seemed far fetched for some of the technology world alterations and attitudes but I also understand that the world has made some significant changes in the last twenty years so that’s probably me nitpicking There were parts that could use editing some grammatical errors as well as information that I don’t feel needs to be explained every time like characters bidding “good night” and overall the writing didn’t have the sort of evocative imagery that I like descriptions were straightforward and while Tara is said to enjoy reading she doesn’t describe her environment effusively Overall I appreciated Wright’s handling of Tara’s situation as far as I could tell she didn’t seem a caricature of autism and though she receives help from many along the way she has agency I liked the respect she encounters from adults in several situations as well they don’t try to manipulate her or expect that she might do something for them due to age dynamics While there’s a twisted premise in forced brain alteration to make someone neurotypical Wright’s portrayal of the resistance to that reads as very human which is what I want out of a story
