The sequel--and conclusion--to Sarah Crossan's Breathe. Three teen outlaws must survive on their own in a world without air, exiled outside the glass dome that protects what's left of human civilization. Gripping action, provocative ideas, and shocking revelations in a dystopian novel that fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth will devour.Bea, Alina, and Quinn are on the run. They started a rebellion and were thrown out of the pod, the only place where there's enough oxygen to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. Can they survive in the perilous Outlands? Can they finish the revolution they began? Especially when a young operative from the pod's Special Forces is sent after them. Their only chance is to stand together, even when terrible circumstances force them apart. When the future of human society is in danger, these four teens must decide where their allegiances lie. Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, and shattered society in this 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"
