Holding Her Breath: A Novel

We rated this book:


Holding Her Breath by Eimear Ryan is a book about a college student named Beth, who is the granddaughter of a famous poet. Her grandfather was barely spoken of growing up, and now as an adult, she learns more and more about him.

Starting the book was very rocky, and I had trouble getting into a flow. I think that sometimes there was too much going on with the plot, and it had many complications. I got to learn a lot about Beth and her family’s past. Although the writing was a bit hard to follow, I could picture the scenes in my head, and I could envision what was going on.

I would recommend Holding Her Breath to people ages fourteen to sixteen and people that are interested in the coming-of-age genre. Although I didn’t like it as much as I had wished, I hope you enjoy reading this book.
