"The Air We Breathe," by Christa Parrish

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'd 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?

I honestly don't know what to say about this book.  It wasn't a great book, but neither was it a horrible book.  The story takes some getting into and it takes a while to figure out who is who.  Its a book that you really have to concentrate to read so you pick up what's going on.

I wasn't wanting to know what happened next and the story didn't suck me in.  It has an air of mystery about it and all is not what it seems.

Stars out of 5 : 2.5 It wasn't the book for me; however it may be for you, so take a chance on it and read it.
