Book Review: “Just Remember to Breathe” by Charles Sheehan-Miles
Here we are introduced to Alex and Dylan, two star crossed lovers who spent 2 magical weeks abroad with their schools when they were both 16 and 17. For 7 years, they had a long distance relationship (they only saw each other twice that entire time!) until one day they broke up because of a series of events. Six months after their break up (with no contact to each other at all), they find themselves both attending Columbia University, where Alex is still trying to get over the break up and Dylan is fresh from Afghanistan. This story shows that it doesn’t matter how old you are or where you are in life (or on a map), true love is true love. I love a damaged male character and you definitely get that in this book. Dylan is so messed up from everything that happened in the war and he just can’t seem to let it go and you can’t help but just want to hold him and tell him he’s going to make it. Alex had to deal with her share of shitty-ness during the 6 months that they were broken up and it’s something that she doesn’t want to tell Dylan about. I read this book despite having been told I shouldn’t (you know who you are) and I’m glad I did because I loved it! GET IT HERE!
