Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
Katie McGarry has a magical writing ability and she can make any type of reader get lost in her words. Only a Breath Apart is a stunning and emotional read, one that deals with social issues in a realistic way. This book brought many tears in my eyes but it also made my heart swell. The eloquence in which she writes this profound novel has left a deep imprint in my heart and I am so happy to have taken the time to read and essentially live within this world. I encourage any reader of both young adult fiction and romance to read McGarry's new release as I think it will leave an impression on anyone who does so.
Only a Breath Apart is a story about two people who have gone their whole lives knowing how bad family can hurt those they are supposed to protect. It's a story of overcoming ones past, making their own paths for the future, and hopefully finding love along the way. Neither Jessie nor Scarlett will have an easy road ahead of them, especially considering all the obstacles standing in their way, but the journey is inspiring. I don't want to get into the plot because this here is a book that you need to FEEL without preconceived notions, but I will tell you it's an emotional read. I didn't think the book would have such an effect on my heart, but it did. And in all honesty, I loved it.
Fans of McGarry know what I am talking about when I say her books are truly breathtaking and that is no different with this one. Only a Breath Apart is an exceptional read and I highly recommend it to all readers.
I received a copy of this novel via the publishers in exchange for an honest review.
