The writing was pretty great, although at first definitely took some genee used to. It makes me feel all giddy inside whenever I hear his Southern accent. Her courageous stunts, her friendship, wrapped her personality with a tight red bow. After an intense experience where lives are saved, these two start a thing. A lot of teen readers will empathize with Savannah and be rooting for her to achieve her goals.

Jazmen Greene, Staff Reviewer. Jul 28, Laura rated it it was ok Shelves: Like I mentioned above, Breathing is a far cry okay, maybe just a considerably distanced cry from the typical YA novels I’ve been reading lately, which was nice, refreshing even. There were hints and clues in some areas but I really had to look through the book, read between the lines, to really get that he was uncertain.

At times I found her desire dheryl better herself inspiring, but a majority of the time I just wanted to shake her. Sure, Jackson had to basically force Savannah to go the mountain thing, but the fact that she relented means something. Immature conversations, thoughts and everything you can imagine. I did felt that the beginning could have been expended more.


Not to mention her chronic stalking. Would I recommend the book? I loved the way how they talked, it seemed really cute. I originally was going to give this book 2 stars, but in the end I gave it 3.

But then there’s books like Breathing where it’s all I desperately want is for the two lovebirds to stick it out and make things work already. Also, Jackson doesn’t seem to really like Savannah all that much. Leave a Reply Cancel reply. They’ve been my escape as long as I can remember.

With every sentence it felt like the reader was transported from their living room couch to the sandy beaches of the Carolina coast. Jackson couldn’t be more perfect: Her trips bdeathing the hospi Breathing is a perfect book to read in the summer.

I thought the ending was spot on, I was a little worried for awhile it wouldn’t end that way but it’s definitely the way the ending should have been!

I liked it enough that Cjeryl will recommend it to people, but not so much that I can see myself reading it over and over again. A very fine debut. Savannah, gosh, what should I say?


Each book has followed a different couple along a Jan 25, Gabby rated it really liked it. Feb 19, Stephanie rated it it was amazing Shelves: He follows her mama’s rules and when she has an asthma attack he even stays with her in the hospital. This book was great. But it’s not only that that has Savannah worried.

She splits her time between reading trashy romance novels in the summer, looking out for her little brother, working at the library, and breahting out at the beach. So, Jackson follows her mom’s strict rules and when Savannah has an asthma attack; Bgeathing stays with her the whole time she is in the hospital.

Savannah goes through a roller coaster of emotions, up and down and up and down, because of her family, her severe asthma, and because of Jackson.

Loved the plot, the characters and especially that cute sounding Southern accent! I love the dialect that the author brings into this story.

A hard-working loving Southern teen who loves to read and can’t wait to get out of her small town. So, I only liked the ending, but I think it hints at an even better ending for Savannah and Jackson.
