Trying Not to Breathe
By Jennifer Hubbard
Release Date: January 19thSummary: A dark and provocative novel from the author of The Secret Year
Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough—or cared enough—to ask. Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again.
Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.
I saw this book on someone else's WoW a couple of weeks ago and instantly fell in love with the cover. Then, when I read the summary, I knew I had to read this book when it came out. It sounds like a more serious book which will be a nice break fun all of the light, fun books I normally read. The romance between Nicki and Ryan sounds so real and sweet that I can't wait to indulge myself in it! Hopefully time passes quick so I can read this one soon!
