I’ve been reading Susan Wiggs for about a year now but hadn’t yet caught Just Breathe.
After requesting it at the library, I finally had my hands on it.
Sarah Moon is a freelance cartoonist whose cartoon strip seems to echo her real life. Sarah’s husband is recently recovered from cancer. Their lives were so consumed by his illness that they forgot how to be themselves, how to be married, and how to be a couple.
Sarah moves back to her hometown in northern California but soon discovers she’s pregnant.
I enjoyed this one a lot. Sarah vividly remembers what it was like to be an outcast in high school. Her art combined with her unflinchingly honest take on high school life made her feel odd and like an outcast. She’s surprised when she reconnects to a few of her former classmates and learns that who you were as a teenager is not necessarily indicative of who you become as an adult.
I recommend this one and give it a thumbs up!
