Book Review: Breathing Underwater

Breathing Underwater by Alex Flinn

SUMMARY: Nick is intelligent, poupular and wealthy. Everyone thinks his life is pretty easy. Except that Nick has never told anyone about his father's violent temper. When Nick meets Caitlin, he thinks that she is the answer to all of his problems. But then Nick has to face up to the fact that he has inherited more from his father than green eyes and money.

OPINION: In all of her books, Alex Flinn writes about difficult subjects in a unique way. In this book, she tackles the subject of dating violence from the point of view of the abuser. Nick honestly doesn't think he has a problem, and the book really focuses on how he comes to terms with his issues. This is a tough book to read, but very well-written and worthwhile.
