Breathe by Cliff McNish

Breathe is a ghost story about a boy named Jack. Jack lost his dad at a very young age; therefore, he can see ghosts. He hasn’t had much experience with this before, because most ghosts go to the “other side”. However, when Jack and his mom move to the old farmhouse, Jack starts to have problems. All of a sudden Jack has constant asthma attacks, starts seeing a lady in the house who calls herself the Ghost mother, and his mom thinks he is crazy. Jack disregards the last issue as nothing to be worried about. He wants to know everything about the Ghost mother, but the more Jack finds out, the less sure he is he wants to know anything at all. Is Jack in over his head?

I loved this book. It has a great plot and is very descriptive. Some, however, may find this a terrible book solely because it is a ghost story. I suggest you don’t read this book if you hate scary stories. I would give Breathe 4 out of 5 stars.
