"This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy. No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself. How could Evan Mathews unravel my constant universe in just one day?"
In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection - pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises, not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.
One girl's story of unspeakable cruelty, life-changing love, and her precarious grasp of hope, Reason to Breathe is the first installment in the acclaimed Breathing Series.

Better writing and narrating.
Overly dramatic in the wrong places.
For a while, it was interesting enough to keep listening to, despite the choppy writing and overdone narrating.
No. the storyline was dreadful
Get another book
This is a good book for a 15 or 16 year old. Otherwise, it is a waste of money
I have already recommended this book to multiple people and my facebook friends!
I don't know that I can pick, Sarah I guess, it is my name and well, she is the friend we all strive to be.
Evan, truly made me feel his emotion
Yes, but only due to the narrator.
Different concept. Emma's tenacity.
This book wasn't perfect, but was worth the purchase. Book 2 (Barely Breathing) was long and drawn out, I probably wouldn't have finished reading the book version. Book 3 (Out of Breath) is a don't waste your money book. Reads like a soap opera.
I loved this series! I originally avoided it because it sounded too sad and dramatic. Don't get me wrong, it is incredibly sad at points, and at points I was crying my eyes out. However, it had happy uplifting parts and though it may not seem there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It has everything I love, romance, friendship, mystery and a bit of a Thriller! I would recommend this to anyone, definitely worth a credit!!!!
A perfect world for me: A huge room with wall to wall bookshelves lined with one inspiring book after another & over sized comfy chairs.
I actually had a hard time breathing while reading this gut-wrenching book! Everyone needs a friend like Sara!!! It's the people in your life that makes all the difference. It makes you realize what true friendship means.
I just could not put my kindle down, just long enough to sleep, then up and coffee in hand and the story going, I was really pleased with it, I had to replay the ending about 4 times to find out the ending....won't tell it, but I just got the second and third book and can't wait to get into them, although I am not a teenager It was spell bounding. I would really recommend it to anyone..
