Breathless is a story of a girl Claudine Henry whose world has fallen apart and she is trying to make through it. Claudine’s parents are separating so, she has to go to live in an island with her mother. She has to cancel her summer trip with her best friend and now, she is afraid that someone else might steal her best friend while she will be in an island.

Claudine Henry tries to just stay calm for her mother needs her support. The island doesn’t have any phone or cab services. She plans to explore the island on her own. One day, she meets this boy, Jeremiah Crew. Jeremiah visits the island every summer.

When Claudine spends more time with Jeremiah, she develops new ways to look at the world. She learns to find happiness in small things. She realises that it’s not so hard to live in that island. Claudine and Jeremiah can’t have their forever-love-story because they have just one summer to stay with each other. The shorter duration creates a good pressure thus, a good story line.

No one can ever doubt the writing style of Jennifer Niven. I feel she has a deep connection with her subconscious and she gives her readers what they want to read.

Since, I have read All The Bright Places and Holding Up The Universe, I had more expectations from the story outline. I enjoyed reading the book mostly because it is by Jennifer Niven.

Overall, the story is fine, still one should read it to understand the influence of the words.
