Breathing Under Water reviewed by Pat


Breathing Under Water by Sophie Hardcastle is a very Australian story of tragedy and varying ways of dealing with grief. The author captures the fragility and insecurity of teenage years and invokes a sympathy within the reader for subsequent rebelliousness.

For this reason it would be an interesting novel for those living with the angst of adolescence in their families, enabling them to look at life through younger eyes, and perhaps derive a greater understanding. A very easy and worthwhile read.
