Emma’s struggle with an abusive home life came to a heart pounding conclusion in the final chapters of Reason to Breathe. Now everyone in Weslyn knows Emma’s secret, but Carol can’t hurt Emma anymore. Some are still haunted by the horror of that night, and some must face the repercussions of their choices. Fans of Rebecca Donovan’s debut novel will discover there’s still much to learn about Emma’s life.
The second book in the Breathing Series was a disappointment. This book shows you how Emma deals with all of the things Carol did to her before going off to jail. But in my opinion Emma just pushes all of the people who really care about her away for no good reason. This book was very frustrating because of this. And the ending was another cliffhanger, that was so sad I wanted to cry. I can't wait for the next book but I really hope it will be better than this one.
