So what's it about?


Breathe takes place in a world where the oxygen levels dropped so low, because there were no trees left, that a glass Pod was created. The lucky people chosen to live inside the Pod had their names drawn from the state lottery. The rest were left to suffocate.


The story takes place years after The Switch and has three main characters; Alina who is part of the resistance, Quinn who is a Premium with a father high up in the government and has never had to worry about how much oxygen he breathes, and Bea an Auxiliary whose parents work hard so that she has enough air.


Love it or hate it?                                                              

I enjoyed this book but not as much as I thought I would. I liked the premise but would have liked to have been told more about The Switch and how the Pod was made.

Bea was my favourite character and I liked that the book was told from Alina, Quinn and Bea's point of views. Overall this was an enjoyable book with some twists that I didn't see coming.
