Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful. But seriously, Savannah, cut Jackson some slack. Not to mention her chronic stalking.
BREATHING by Cheryl Renee Herbsman
And asthmatic characters ARE freaking sweet. Karen Yingling, Staff Reviewer. She became too dependent on Jackson that she completely forgets her like pre-Jackson. What a wonderful story. All that and hrbsman seemed to me to be one really unnecessary scene with a church camp boy were rather off-putting.
This is where it starts to get tricky because I can’t exactly pinpoint what the bad really is. A lot of teen readers will empathize with Savannah and be rooting for her to achieve her goals.
She embodies the typical teenage girl, full of insecurities and hopes. By reading the summary, I expected Jackson to dump her after being uncertain about returning to her.
Breathing by Cheryl Renee Herbsman
It feels very believeable and possible and I love that. So, Jackson follows her mom’s strict rules and when Savannah has an asthma attack; Jackson stays with her the breathlng time she is in the hospital. Every scene was too melodramatic and I just wanted to turn the dial down a slight notch. Jackson IS an awesome name. Loved the plot, the characters and especially that cute sounding Southern accent!
I was born in North Carolina too! It kind of felt like I was missing a piece of rennee puzzle, maybe not missing it completely, but missing a part of it.
It has all that but what I liked about this one was the simplicity of the writing and the characters. By reading hsrbsman summary, I expected Jackson to dump her after being uncertain about returning to her.
All in all, a pretty good and surprising read. It deserves to be more than forgettable, but I fear it’ll join the ranks of the many books I have read, but only vaguely recall somewhere down the line. This gives her a break from her hard working school year. Maldred the evil sorcerer is back and wants to gain control Yet, I found that when I was reading it, the dialect didnt bother me much. These characters feel very real to me — Mama, Jackson, especially Savannah.
She likes reading romance novels and works parttime in her local library. Looking for a particular type of book?
A Sky for Us Alone. Savannah and Jackson’s story is a new type of love story. And whilst Breathing does seem to promote this forever kind of love between people incredibly young, it is also encouraging behaviour that will lead both Savannah and Jackson to be independent people who don’t give up on their dreams or each other.
