I found the other characters okay Sam’s relationship with two boys doesn’t seem to have any importance in the end, nor is resolved in any way. This book is emotionally compelling and Warman’s writing drew me deep into the pages and never let up. She has friends that she has had for years and then the “bad boy” comes to the school mid term. Turtle’s kidnapping seems fairly simple from the beginning. Filled with extreme boiuts of emotional trauma and pain that seems to manifest itself physically in ense moments of distress, this story of two twins closer than most is one of the most beautifully written pieces of young adult drama in my personal opinion. It was was also hard to read about all of Liz’s parents’ marital problems. Jan 17, Jessy rated it it was ok Shelves:

Nov 26, Annie Li rated it did not like it Shelves: For everything to be nothing but mere imagination doesn’t float my boat, and it seems like a sad excuse to end the book.

I’m sorry to say that where the plot leads is to a huge disappointment and the character development is very poor. Throughout the course of the story, we find out the truth about some of her friendships and relationships, but one of the main things I admired about Liz was that she never stopped loving her boyfriend. This book was kind of hard to comprehend in some spots, but otherwise it was very well written and the author did a very good job of picking and choosing what she all wanted to put in this book.

The blurb implies that it’s a hard hitting thriller in which the protagonist realises she was mistaken about who’s responsible for the disappearance of her sister 10 years ago and she decides to investigate. Another well-executed aspect was the evolvement of main and secondary characters.

Even though the storyline follows Sam’s before and after perspective, her family unit is a pivotal part of the storyline. Her father is the jesica of her swanky Connecticut boarding school, and she has a pretty good life.


Largely based on the author’s own experiences, Breathless is a stunning debut that explores illness and health, love and lust, friends and enemies, and the moneyed world of prep school with a deft, expert hand. The whole story seems to be interwoven with lies and betrayals; beyond my wildest imagination. I say this is a nice book to try out; you just need warrman persevere past rsste first half.
