Breathe, Annie, Breathe

Breathe, Annie, Breathe
By Miranda Kenneally
Sourcebooks Fire, 2014. 311 pages. Young adult fiction.

When Annie's boyfriend is killed in a tragic car accident, she decides to train to run the marathon he had been training for at the time of his death. She constantly reminds reminds herself to breathe, not only to pace her running but in order to get through every day. But things become complicated when her cute coach, Jeremiah, begins flirting with her, making her feel like she is betraying her boyfriend.

Kenneally has created some really interesting characters and I found Annie's grief very believable. I enjoyed watching her trying to make something meaningful out of the horrible loss of a loved one. The book gives great insight into dealing with grief and forgiving yourself. Be warned that it does have some sexual content and strong language.
