When I read the summary, I thought Savannah’s needing to “learn how to breathe” on her own was simply an over-dramatization and purely figurative yes, I know it says literally and figuratively, but I clearly didn’t read the summary too closely.

There wasn’t even really uerbsman antagonist, just the circumstances of their lives tearing them apart. Another really strong aspect of this book is the struggle that the characters go through. It is chdryl ok reading. Great review and ahhh lucky! Breathing will be available on April 16 or you can pre-order it here.

Breathing is the perfect debut novel by Cheryl Renee Herbsman. Overall a wonderful summer story!

I’m totally okay with the idea of love at first sight, but as the relationship develops, I’d like a little more depth something more than “I can’t breathe if he’s not around”. Savannah had this adorably hilarious sense of humor about things and that beeathing is really easy to relate to her and to be sympathetic to her.
