About the book:
"No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself. This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy. How could Evan Mathews unravel my constant universe in just one day?"
He knows there’s something more to the girl sitting in the back of the class the moment he sees her. She’s beautiful, intelligent, and athletic – but she slips quietly through the crowded halls, trying not to exist. Determined to get to know the elusive girl, Evan soon discovers…
Emma Thomas is hiding a terrible a secret.
Reason to Breathe is an electrifying page turner from start to finish, a unique tale of life-changing love, unspeakable cruelty, and one girl’s fragile grasp of hope.
Abuse no matter what shape or form is never a pretty picture. While everyone knows that it exists; we continue our daily lives avoid the subject and situation that may be surrounding us. Donovan creates a story here that throws it all in your face with no sympathy. This honest and realistic novel will shed light onto the secret world, and wrap it into a simple love story. This is a powerful and fantastic read. Beautifully writing this novel will grab readers attention; while opening their eyes to the horror of this girls story. The ending drops of at a cliff hanger, and the epilogue still left me slightly unclear as to where the story ends. Although, I was relieved to find the Rebecca Donovan is creating a sequel that will lay all my worries to rest. I look forward to seeing how this story will continue to shape.
