About the book:
In a barren land, a shimmering glass dome houses the survivors of the Switch, the period when oxygen levels plunged and the green world withered. A state lottery meant a lucky few won safety, while the rest suffocated in the thin air. And now Alina, Quinn, and Bea—an unlikely trio, each with their own agendas, their own longings and fears—walk straight into the heart of danger. With two days’ worth of oxygen in their tanks, they leave the dome. What will happen on the third day? Sarah Crossan has created a perilous, devastated world in incredible detail. Wholly original and absolutely riveting, Breathe is a novel of adventure, revolution, yearning, and opening your eyes and rising to your greatest potential.
About the author:
Sarah Crossan is Irish, but now lives in Hoboken, New Jersey, where she taught high school English. She has also worked as a freelance magazine writer, book reviewer and educational writer. Her first book, a verse novel called The Weight of Water, will be published in the UK by Bloomsbury in early 2012.
