Summary

The shocking and thrilling sequel--and conclusion--to Breathe, which Kirkus Reviews called "intelligent and absorbing." Three teens confront danger, uncertainty, and the yearning to live--and breathe--freely. This powerful dystopian novel is for fans of Veronica Roth and Patrick Ness.

What would you do if you were desperate? Bea, Alina, and Quinn are outlaws. They started a rebellion and have been thrown out of the pod--the only place where there's enough air to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. What will they find now that they are refugees in the perilous Outlands? Their final safe haven may be harboring dark secrets. But together, the three teens find the will to keep fighting, to save one another, and to break free from everything that's holding them back.

Acclaimed author Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, shattered society, and brought to life three teenagers who come into their own in the most heartbreaking ways. A wrenching, thought-provoking, and unforgettable post-apocalyptic novel.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After the events of Crossan's debut, Breathe (2012), Quinn has been punished for inciting insurrection and banished to the oxygen-poor world outside his safe home in the pod. As he and his girlfriend, Bea, try to reach Alina and the other survivors of the massacre at the Resistance's stronghold, special-forces soldier Ronan is on their trail, but he has become disillusioned and is unwilling to kill any more innocents. Soon the lives of all four teens will be at risk when the sanctuary for which they are searching turns out to be worse than life in the pod. This sequel is just as fast paced as its predecessor, even after Ronan's voice joins the chorus of Alina, Quinn, and Bea's first-person narrations. The multiple perspectives of the likable, believable characters work well to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The romance aspects are a touch forced, but they don't weigh down the story, and the two male perspectives set this one out from the dystopian pack.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2010 Booklist"
