Breathless

( 3 )

Overview

Underwater, a girl's view of how to catch a guy can get distorted.

And the thing about panicking when you're forty feet under the ocean's surface is that you can drown, and you know you can drown. In fact, you can't breathe without your regulator even if you're not panicking. You're also not supposed to hold your breath, because there's pressure underwater.

Editorial Reviews

CM Magazine
"Teen girls, reluctant readers or not, will likely engage with Breathless because of its emotional appeal, vivid imagery, realistically portrayed characters and engaging brief narrative. As well, the same audience will likely identify with the book's majors themes: sexuality and sexual curiosity, insecurity and problems arising with self-doubt. Recommended."
Hip Librarian's Book Blog
"Attention to detail and character development are strong in this brief novel."
Canadian Book Review Annual

VOYA
Beverly is pleased to be spending a week with her uncle in Hawaii. She will have the chance to do some diving and escape the Canadian winter in Winnipeg at the same time. Because she is a little self-conscious about her body, which she terms "pudgy," Beverly decides that she will try to drop ten pounds during her stay. Dieting and diving do not mix, which is a lesson that Beverly learns the tough way. The cute dive master, Garth, however, does not seem to mind that Beverly needs some extra attention. The main attraction of the Orca Soundings series of books is that they are quick and interesting reads especially for struggling readers. High interest, low readability novels that deal with a variety of different characters and issues are the hallmark of this series, an essential one for motivating reluctant readers. VOYA CODES: 3Q 4P M J (Readable without serious defects; Broad general YA appeal; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9). 2005, Orca, 101p., Trade pb. Ages 11 to 15.
