Breathing Underwater
Breathing Underwater

Mastershake1222, November 14, 2007

Breathing Underwater, a stunning novel, about a couple in high school that is struggling to hold their friendship together. In the beginning of the book Nick (boyfriend) is getting charged for yelling and beating Catlin (girlfriend). Nick had all he could ever need a hot girlfriend, spot on the football team, and friends. Catlin is a skinny cute girl that used to be fat and never had a boyfriend. She is filing a restraining order against him for hitting her. Throughout the book he is looking back on their relationship and writing about it in his journal. It is an awesome book and a must read. I liked this book because the story line is awesome and Iā€™m a fellow high school student also, so I can relate to some of the stuff they talk about. I think the author was thinking about abuse when she was writing the book. There was a lot of abusing throughout the book that resulted in harsh punishments for all the characters. I think all people need to read this book because it has a strong story line and attitude toward abuse.
