Book Review - The Air We Breathe by Christa Parrish


Publisher's blurb: Molly Fisk Needs the Courage to Face Her Fears.
What She Finds Instead is a Most Unexpected Friendship.
Seventeen-year-old Molly Fisk does not go outside. For so long she has run away from a moment long in the past, but she's not running anymore, she's hiding. Ruled by anxiety, she can only stare out the window of the tiny tourist-town museum she and her mother call home, longing to go outside--to maybe take a walk with the cute boy who works in the pizza place across the street.

Then the chance arrival of a woman Molly knew years ago changes everything.

Back then, Claire Rodriguez was an empty shell. Only in the unique friendship she struck up with a little girl--a silent girl who'd only talk to Claire--did she see the possibility of healing. But one day the girl and her mother vanished, their house left abandoned.

What happened that drove them away? And how can Claire now offer Molly the same chance at finding life anew?

My review: I liked this book. The characters are likable and you end up wanting Molly to get better - you feel for her. It goes to show you there is so much more going on behind the scenes of everyday life. I would recommend this book to others.
