A dark and provocative novel from the author of The Secret Year
Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it’s the only thing that makes him feel alive. He’s sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan’s depression that no one else has ever been brave enough—or cared enough—to ask. Ryan isn’t sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again.
Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject ~Goodreads.
The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard was one of my favorite books last year. It was also one of the books that really got me hooked on YA in general! So I am super freakin’ excited to read her second YA novel that’s also written in male pov!(<--- male pov is my all-time favorite thing ever! GAH! I just love it!) Try Not to Breathe sounds amazing, looks amazing and I already know it will be amazing! I mean come on, it’s Jennifer R. Hubbard! <3
