Published by Greenwillow Books on October 8th, 2013
The sequel—and conclusion—to Sarah Crossan's Breathe. Three teen outlaws must survive on their own in a world without air, exiled outside the glass dome that protects what's left of human civilization. Gripping action, provocative ideas, and shocking revelations in a dystopian novel that fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth will devour.
Bea, Alina, and Quinn are on the run. They started a rebellion and were thrown out of the pod, the only place where there's enough oxygen to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. Can they survive in the perilous Outlands? Can they finish the revolution they began? Especially when a young operative from the pod's Special Forces is sent after them. Their only chance is to stand together, even when terrible circumstances force them apart. When the future of human society is in danger, these four teens must decide where their allegiances lie. Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, and shattered society in this wrenching, thought-provoking, and unforgettable post-apocalyptic novel.
Just Me Being An Impatient Teen: I cannot wait for this book! Breathe - if you haven't read it, get your hands on it now - was amazing. The idea of living within a city that has the only air while the outside world other than other cities had no air is breathtakingly original. (bad pun?)
Though it's three point of views, which I dislike, I actually really enjoy reading through them because they all entwine right from the start instead of waiting until the end of the book for the characters to meet.
Honestly, I haven't been this excited for a sequel in a long time, and I hope you guys check Breathe out so we can't wait happily and impatiently together :)
