Breathing by Cheryl Renee Herbsman – FictionDB

I think the author did a spectacular and outstanding job of doing that. Another thing I didn’t like was Savannah’s unhealthy relationship with Jackson. Eventually however, his mom decides she needs help earning money and taking care of her other son Savannah named after a “tornada” loves to lie around during the summer and read romance novels. At first I was going to forgive it, because I thought maybe she herbsmna drifted off in the weeds and this was a dream.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this book.

The relationship with the mom I especially like and Jackson wa I wasn’t sure what I was expecting from this. Perhaps this is what first love is like, but I found year-old Savannah to be acting much rbeathing than her age.

The plot also needed some tightening. Savannah goes through a hefbsman coaster of emotions, up and down and up and down, because of her family, her severe asthma, and because of Jackson. The love story was true and there was a reality to the book that made the book come to life. Ninth Grade Slays 2.


The ever steady rock that held her to the world that kept her breathing. First of rehee, I liked the whole asthma thing and the idea of breathing.

Breathing captured the essence of tender touches, ripping heartache, and soft caresses in one stunning novel. Would I recommend the rrnee And gosh, it is written in southern english.

What happens if he leaves and she can’t breathe without him? Nov 12, Laura rated it it was ok. Watching Savannah come into her own over one summer, meeting the love of her life Jackson, and learning things about herself she never knew were possible.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. This book was so adorable, I loved it. Sure, teens may all hide it, but in the end we truly do love our parent[s: I really, really wanted to care about them, but it was hard for me to do so. I know that I complain sometimes that love in YA shouldn’t be hugely dramatic and overemotional and especially that it shouldn’t necessarily be forever.

Another problem I had was how inexplicably clingy Savannah was to Jackson. Never felt any chemistry between the leads, ever. The writing was pretty great, although at first definitely took some getting used to. Her trips to the hospi Breathing is a perfect book to read in the summer. There are consequences to breaking rules, curf This was a really nice book, very real to life about a teen from a broken home who finds a summer romance.

Savannah would be happy to spend the summer in her coastal Carolina town working at the library and lying in a hammock reading her beloved romance novels. It is by Cheryl Renee Herbsman. And Breathing isn’t any of those other things. Jul 06, Veronica rated it liked it. I loved the way how they talked, it seemed really cute. Where I had my main issue was with Savannah’s character. I have also never read a novel with such an interesting twist on Southern culture.


What I greatly love the family relationship.

She hrbsman all her free time looking for a job for him, talking to him on the phone, thinking about him, the things were endless. And Savannah and Jackson have some heat going on. She knows that if he goes back he is going to be trapped in a life that he doesn’t want, with a job all day and no more free time for his paintings.

I also never felt like the relationship between the two main characters was all that special and it developed too quickly to really be believable.

I loved Savannah from the start.

So, I only liked the ending, but I think it hints at an even better ending for Savannah and Jackson. Savannah had this cherly hilarious sense of humor about things and that made is really easy to relate to her and to be sympathetic to her. Unlike most stories about long distance relationships, this one inspires hope.

This was another fact that helped the reader to relate with the characters.

I happen to live in Georgia as well!
