Heading Out Review

Days before her high school graduation, Claudine’s parents announce that they’re divorcing. She and her mom will spend Claude’s remaining summer season earlier than university on an island in Georgia with spotty Wi-Fi and constant mosquitoes. Claude feels like the floor’s been pulled out from under her till she meets Jeremiah, the enigmatic islander who sees through every wall she places up. Slowly but surely, Claude and Jeremiah rebuild her foundations, taking risks with their hearts and manipulate of their lives.

As in Jennifer Niven’s preceding YA novels, Breathless introduces its protagonist at a moment whilst her global feels upside down, confronting her struggles head-on. For Claude, these encompass the emotional fallout from her dad and mom’ divorce and her developing desire to have sex earlier than she heads off to university. (Though she knows virginity is a patriarchal construct, Claude is prepared to lose hers ASAP.)

Although Claude’s dad and mom and the novel’s other adult characters lack dimensionality, the teens—along with Claude, Jeremiah and Claude’s great friend, Saz—are all richly developed, deep flaws and all. Claude and Jeremiah’s romance has just the proper amount of sweetness as they grapple with the line between love and lust, what it method to feel grounded and what they may suggest to each other as soon as the summer involves a close.

Breathless is a frank and gentle novel of self-discovery that enthusiasts of Sarah Dessen’s transformational summer season romances and John Green’s tales of poignant self-discovery and tough growth will enjoy.
