Breathe . . .
The world is dead.
The survivors live under the protection of Breathe, the corporation that found a way to manufacture oxygen-rich air.
has been stealing for a long time. She's a little jittery, but not terrified. All she knows is that she's never been caught before. If she's careful, it'll be easy. If she's careful.
should be worried about Alina and a bit afraid for himself, too, but even though this is dangerous, it's also the most interesting thing to happen to him in ages. It isn't every day that the girl of your dreams asks you to rescue her.
wants to tell him that none of this is fair; they'd planned a trip together, the two of them, and she'd hoped he'd discover her out here, not another girl.
And as they walk into the Outlands with two days' worth of oxygen in their tanks, everything they believe will be shattered. Will they be able to make it back? Will they want to?
And if that just whets your appetite, do check out the extract...
Which songs would be on your Breathe playlist?
I listened to ‘Just Breathe’ by Pearl Jam on repeat while I was writing the book; the lyrics and melody fit the tone of the novel perfectly. As I got to the end of the book though, I discovered Kate Rusby, and I think of her song, ‘Who Will Sing Me Lullabies,’ as Bea’s theme tune. It’s doleful. Listen and try not to cry—I challenge you!
Thank you Sarah! I hadn't heard either of those songs previously, but they are both very pretty. Especially the Kate Rusby song... that's being added to my collection soon, for sure.
GIVEAWAY - To be in with the chance of winning a copy of Breathe (UK and Ireland only, I'm afraid!) just leave us a PICK ME comment (together with some way of contacting you) with your thoughts on Breathe - what you think of the cover, the description, the songs that Sarah has chosen...
