"Hatred is good.Forgiveness is bad."
One day while browsing NetGallery I came across this book and decided to take a look because the title and cover pic looked interesting. When I read the synopsis I still wasn't sure but BOY AM I GLAD I took a chance to request this book from Atria Books and read it for a review!!
This book is definitely a brilliant read! I am not familiar with K.A. Tucker's work but this book definitely came out of left field and took me by surprise.
The character of Kacey Cleary is so tragic yet heartening. Being the only survivor from a car crash that took the lives of her parents, best friend, and boyfriend, Kacey takes her little sister under her wing and runs away to Miami after catching her uncle trying to molest her sister, Livie.
Kacey's an emotional mess and so I was quite concerned with how she was going to take care and provide for herself and Livie. HOWEVER, along the way of course, she meets Storm and her five year old daughter Mia AND her totally hot neighbor Trent and they make a new life for themselves.
This story to me brought up themes of healing, forgiveness, and ultimately for Kacey to let go of everything [her anger, her bitterness] and just LIVE.
"Ten Ten Breaths" was such an emotional read for me. I lost my brother in a tragic event [not car crash] so relating to that pain that Kacey hit home for me. I cried so much because of the similar thoughts and feelings of what she initially went through and how she deals with things.
TRUST ME when I say THIS IS A MUST READ!
