The fictional future is here: Ginnetta Correli, emotive talespinner ne plus ultra. What I learned from this book: The transformative power of courage and epiphanic grace under pressure. The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli" is the kind of book I love to hate, yet it's a book I love. It is -sigh- a coming of age story. I love to hate coming of age stories.

When I began reading The Lost Episodes, I thought, "What is this?" . This book took me only three hours to finish. It was that interesting and haunting. The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli unfolds as if the reader is watching television and also is part of a cast member of a strange movie.

When I began reading The Lost Episodes, I thought, "What is this?" In just a few pages I no longer cared to define what I was experiencing. Using an experimental narrative style that is a synthesis of a theater and a movie script, Beatie's experiences with her pyschotic mother and dumbly abusive father sear themselves into your consciousness. I'm a sixty year old male, yet I couldn't put the book down. I could not turn away. What an artistic accomplishment.

Ginnetta Correli, <strong>The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli</strong> (Mushroom Press, 2008)

<em>The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli</em> is one of those titles I had heard about on the fringes of various groups I hang out on the fringes of, in the odd google alert, etc., for a few years, with enough frequency that I figured I would have to sit down and read it eventually. I have an ebook version of it, and when I found myself caught out one day with a two-hour wait, having just finished off Jordan Krall's <em>Fistful of Feet</em> (elsewhere this ish), I was browsing for a new title to begin, and this jumped out at me. Thirty seconds later, I was digging in.

<em>Beatie Scareli</em> reads like a memoir, which immediately raises the "how autobiographical is this novel?" flag in my head, but I have tried to look at the book in such a way as to make that question irrelevant. (I kind of have to; I kind of hate memoirs.) On the other hand, Beatie (whose name, Correli informs us in a very brief postscript, is Italian for "traveller through life") is also a bit more archetype than actual human being, in that the book is a "woe is me" catalogue that's just a little too "woe is me" to be true, dig? Note, though, I said "archetype" and not "stereotype", and I did so deliberately. Beatie is, for all that I couldn't tell whether the writing was simply amateur or a strikingly good attempt at rendering the voice of a pre-teen (I'm willing to give Correli the benefit of the doubt, but it would have been nice to have the voice mature as Beatie aged towards the end of the book; still, one can rationalize that with emotional stunting given how much the poor kid goes through), a well-realized character. This makes it all the more depressing that Beatie is used as a punching bag by pretty much everyone around her, mostly emotional though sometimes physical. And here's where Correli is going to define her audience: <em>The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli</em> is an unrelenting, brutal catalogue of neglect, abuse, and misery, with the only real breaks in Beatie's imagination. There is no light at the end of the tunnel that isn't a serial killer's torch, and by the time Beatie gets around to hoping, we are already quite aware that there's no way out for her. Which brings me to the one point I'm not as willing to give Correli: the book just... ends. I can rationalize everything else in the service of enjoying the book (even if "enjoying" is in no way the proper word), but it would have been nice to have some sort of finality at the end, even if only slightly so. Instead, given the episodic nature of the book, its end is like that of a TV show cancelled mid-season; no one has any time to wrap things up.

I'll throw out a tentative recommend, but with a warning that you should know what you're in for. If you trigger easily, hide the drain cleaner before pulling this one off the shelf. ** 1/2

Firstly, let me say that this is a book not to be missed. All readers take note that "Lost Episodes" is a novel that is not only eminently readable but has depth and significance. The writer's style is straightforward and unselfconscious and is therefore the perfect vehicle for the adolescent narrator. Not to demean the work in any way but to point out that the style is commensurate with the tale that is told.
Others have provided a synopsis of the story. Just let me say that if you cannot identify with this girl, Beatie Scareli, as you read through her narrative, you are one cold fish. Not to say that all of us have lived through the tribulations that Beatie experienced in her "coming of age," but I think we all can empathize. These are very real and terrible matters that no child should have to suffer.
Beatie is a resourceful girl but circumstances are stacked against her. The reader wants Beatie's solutions to work in her favor but... actions, as we know, have consequences and they are not always good consequences.
What is uplifting in this work is that Beatie does not lose hope that her life will get better and she does not rail against the society that never seems to acknowledge her pain or help to assuage it. We may recognize that society has let Beatie down but it is our call; it is not thrown in our faces.
Very few books imprint themselves on my consciousness so that the details are vivid for years after I have finished reading and returned the book to my bookshelf. I know that this is one of the books that I will never forget. I suspect this will be true for many readers.
Thanks to Ginnetta Correli for bring this intimate and amazing story to us.

I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I hadn't read it on the Kindle....The format/type of writing is very different, and I think the Kindle didn't do it justice. Also, so many spelling errors. I don't know if that also had to do with the paper to kindle conversion? However, I will say that this is a good, quick read, geared more towards young adults, and it was quirky.

Something about this book appealed to me, and I think it must be the cover picture. It is very interesting to look at and the online available chapters seemed interesting enough, but the "story" itself was lacking. This is sort of a modern day "Go Ask Alice", but told poorly. There were so many technical errors that even those who miss mistakes would stumble over. The way it was written, like a screenplay, was also done very poorly. The quotation marks were all over the place as were the commas. Did no one proof read this? Let alone edit!

But ah, moving past the technical issues, the story itself wasn't much of one. It's about a girl, Beatie, and her day to day life as her family and world falls apart around here. There was much potential here but this book just didn't deliver. Parts were very disturbing, and yes a lot was told in few words, but at the end of the day we don't know what happens to poor, young Beatie or her crazy family. I'd recommend Go Ask Alice instead.
