Try Not To Breathe by Jennifer R. Hubbard


Author Jennifer R. Hubbard does an outstanding job describing people who have anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and suicidal thoughts in the telling of Try Not To Breathe. High school student Ryan struggles to acclimate to life after having attempted suicide and staying in a mental hospital. It's not going well. His fellow students avoid him and his parents dissect his every word trying to determine his state of mind. Then one day he meets Nicki whose curiosity and persistent questions about the events leading up to Ryan's suicide attempt help her to understand both him and a tragic event that took place in her own family. As their friendship grows, Ryan slowly starts to build a new life that moves forward leaving his suicide attempt behind.
