R favorite boathouse hangout When Tay introduces Elsie to the world of freediving she vows to find the answers she seeks at the bottom of the se. 35 stars The Art of Not Breathing by Sarah Alexander is her YA debut novel I came upon this book casually without knowing anything neither of the author nor of the plot itself I had just finished a slow and action packed book so I hoped this one would be a uick and light readWell it turns out I read it in a few hours It wasn t light at all but it had something that made turn every page eager to know what would happen next The story Five years after the drowning of her twin brother Scottish teenager Elsie Main confronts the tempestuous sea and her family s tragic pastSince her twin brother Eddie drowned five years ago sixteen year old Elsie Main has tried to remember what really happened that fateful day on the beach One minute Eddie was there and the next he was gone Seventeen year old Tay McKenzie is a cute and mysterious boy that Elsie meets in her favorite boathouse hangout When Tay introduces Elsie to the world of freediving she vows to find the answers she seeks at the bottom of the sea The characters Elsie is a 16 yo who is experiencing life as a normal 16 yo would The characterization was very well done and the development felt real and necessary She has a twin brother Eddie who died 5 years before but she has yet to discover what happened to him She then embarks in an physical and psychological adventure to find out Elsie uses freediving as a sort of therapy and her results without even taking serious classes were astounding Tavey is the cute and tormented boy she slowly becomes friend with But their friendship seems to hide some secretsDillon is Elsie s brother He suffers for everything that s happening to their family collecting the pains of the past and the present I had mixed feelings for him throughout the book because I wasn t able to understand his actions at allAilsa and her friend Dillon s girlfriend nonetheless are bullying Elsie and I have yet to understand the reason Elsie gives us one but I am not fully convinced by it It s pointless to say I deeply hated both of these girlsDillon and Elsie s parents are coping with past events and they have yet to learn how to help their children I wasn t rooting for them as individuals at all I was rooting for their familyDanny is a coward Enough saidAnd last but not least Eddie We learn a few chapters in that he suffered at birth He didn t breathe properly and there were conseuences when he grew up Throughout the book he didn t feel different at all he seemed like a normal child and despite everything people were saying he was in fact normal but in his own way The themes This book approaches a wide range of difficult themes death grief eating disorders bullying and parenting I don t want to say much because I think it is necessary to read this book to fully comprehend how the author creates the connections among these issuesI ll say though that I absolutely hated the gratuitous injustices and the violent bullying I wanted to step into the story myself and strangle everybody with my own hands including those who don t do anything in first person but they don t even stop their friends The bullying looked a bit exaggerated thoughI liked the fact the author presented Elsie who seem to suffer from an eating disorder herself one opposed to her brother without pitying her but creating a realistic image of the events Having a difficult interaction with the parents themselves it was a detailed portrait of the life they like many other people seem to haveSarah Alexander previously was a mental health support worker so we can see from where all of this comes It felt so real and ugly at times that I was both emotionally detached and moved at the same time The writing Sarah Alexander s writing was simple straight forward and addictive I couldn t stop reading and even if it was difficult to read about certain happenings the chapters went on smoothly The words pictured one of the most realistic stories I have ever read I didn t really understand the short phone messages that precede some of the chapters maybe they are another to show us Eddie I am not sure but some of the jokes and interaction were cuteAlso I loved the flashbacks Elsie had in the water I don t know if I loved the idea or that I was waiting for them to happen and I wanted to know what happened so much A general evaluation I have probably used the word real too much in this review but this is exactly what this book was in my opinionI love the title and it perfectly links two of the main aspect of the story Eddie s non breathing when he was born and Elsie s love for freediving I thought about this and I came to the conclusion that this title feels like the connection the twins seem to have in the story it reflects their unionI also really enjoyed the fact it was set in Scotland which isn t like an ideal place for swimming or freediving I love the seaocean and I adore swimming so this element really struck a chord with me This book is permeated with sadness and pain though Sometimes it was hard to read but I sincerely couldn t stop The ghosts of the past seem to influence the present even that they should And secrets seemed to be the second nature of the family and friends At the end I thought I was going to get what it really happened but then it looked impossible and then it was a totally different thing and I almost got it The end in my opinion lacked a bit of closure though Anyway this book is really enjoyable and it was a nice change from my usual picks My favorite uotes That s the thing with art You always have to look at it from a different perspectiveMy advice to you Elsie is go with your heart not your head because your head doesn t know what it wants It only thinks about the moral high ground And if your heart isn t happy when you try to share it you ll make others unhappy tooI ll try And you promise me that you ll breathe Critical Communication Studies to The Big Vote the world of freediving she vows Gender and Firearms to find Six Essential Fingerings for the Jazz
