Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Breathe fuses gothic angst with something more sinisterly existential…A short, dark account of the hothouse atmosphere of tortured adolescence and overheated relationships.” Metro (UK)
Breathe belongs squarely in the mainstream of precocious chamber novels by teenage authors….[It] catches the febrile passion of adolescent bonds with eerie intensity, and shows genuine, unsettling promise.” Independent (London)
