Book Review~The Air We Breathe

From the back cover: "Molly Fisk needs the courage to face her fears.  What she finds instead is a most unexpected friendship.  Seventeen-year-old Molly Fisk does not go outside.  For so long she has run away from a moment long in the past, but she's not running anymore.  She's hiding.  Ruled by anxiety, she can only stare out the window of the tiny tourist-town museum she and her mother call home, longing to go outside-to maybe take a walk with the cute boy who works in the pizza place across the street.

Then the chance arrival of a woman Molly knew years ago changes everything.  Back then, Claire Rodriguez was an empty shell.  Only in the unique friendship she struck up with a little girl-a silent girl who would only talk to Claire-did she see the possibility of healing.  But one day the girl and her mother vanished, their house left abandoned.

What happened that drove them away? And how can Claire now offer Molly the same chance at finding life anew?"

My Thoughts: I enjoyed this book; it was a great story.  The characters were very real and my heart ached for the pain they were going through.  There were several unanswered questions that kept you wondering and guessing throughout the story.  The only problem I had with the book was the way the chapters were written, going back and forth in time based on the two main characters.  That was confusing for me.  I can understand why the author wrote it that way, though, for maximum impact of the storyline.  The Air We Breathe is definitely worth checking out!
