Ever Harding, an average teenager with a passion for swimming is about to turn eighteen. Out of the blue she has been dumped by her long time boyfriend, which is the ultimate of tragedies in her life. Little does she know that on that fated eighteenth birthday, she will have to make a choice that will change her life as she knows it, forever.

A month before her birthday, Ever meets Jack, a mysterious new boy with mesmerizing eyes. He affects her like no one else. This meeting sets things into a whirlwind she never would have dreamed. With Jack's guidance she discovers a family line that leads her to the sea. She must make the ultimate choice, stay on land where life as she knows it, won't change, or go and live in the sea as a mermaid with Jack.

Ultimately her choice sets into motion an even bigger decision, in which she has the fate of a race of people, in her hands. The people in the sea are in a feud, she will tip the balance. She must battle the ageless moral dilemma of prejudice and race. Once she comes to terms with her life changing choices, she must ask herself, Did I make the right decisions? and Is Jack really who I think he is?

My Thoughts:
Ugh, I just don't even know what to say. I did not finish this book. I tried and tried and tried. At about 80% I gave in and just stopped. The first person point of view in this book is just terrible. It really was the breaking point for me. That and long run-on sentences you had to read twice to understand.
The main character, Ever, is whinny and annoying. Sadly, it's her point of view that the story is told from. I just could not connect with Just Breathe. There was no liking for Ever or Jack or their relationship. Some of the plot was likable, but over all, this just wasn't my book.
I did not get to the ending, so I have no idea if there are any big plot twists or cliffhangers. I was so miserable reading this book that I decided I didn't care to find out.
