I think whether or not you ag Review and more at https: How is that possible if there’s not even enough Oxygen to breathe, if there are no plants to produce the Oxygen? But despite all the action, reveals and all I still found this story rather flat.

Been there, read that. Personal tools Log in. I wanted to know more about The Switch and I found the explanation of why it all came about a bit unsatisfactory.

Overall, I would say this is a really promising debut novel that will keep you flipping the page, and I’m excited to read the second installation in the series. But even scarier…it could.

She was rude most of the time, she is cold and she cares only about herself. Okay, enough of that. View all 7 comments. This is the world of Breathea novel by Sarah Crossan. Aug 21, Katy rated it it was ok.
