If it was an option I would have given this book 3. So, I only liked the ending, but I think it hints at an even better ending for Savannah and Jackson. Until everything changes, she meets Cherryl a cute boy who is staying with relatives for the summer.

Nov 12, Laura rated it it was ok. 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 brexthing Jackson to be independent people who don’t give up on their dreams or each other. The characters that the author created were real and fun as well as relatable.

Will Savannah finally learn to breathe on her own? 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.

The symbolism, the imagery, the theme- call it whatever you want to, I just liked it. I recommend this book for middle school and beyond for anyone who loves an old fashioned romance story.

Loved the plot, the characters and especially that cute sounding Southern accent! 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.

That and the beautiful cover which somehow only makes me feel even more disappointed because I was really hoping for a better book. Give The Dark My Love.

Breathing by Cheryl Renee Herbsman

And gosh, it is written in southern english. And their relationship was, sad to same, was childish. The Southern drawl was adorable within itself but felt a little much at times. Hes the one who holds her down and keeps her aground. A hard-working loving Southern teen who loves to read and can’t wait to get out of her small town.
