Product description

Review

"Katie McGarry knows what YA is, how it works, and what it can do better than anyone, but she always takes it one step further."--Hypable

"Fair warning: Picture-perfect Scarlett and misunderstood Jesse will have you in your feels."--Girls' Life Magazine

"Beyond a haunted teen romance is a beautiful, moving exploration of domestic violence, forgiveness, and self-love. ...Simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming." --Kirkus, starred review

"McGarry ably captures the feeling of desperately wanting to come home to a friendship that has radically changed. The novel manages to tackle domestic violence in a way that never feels clichéd, and the romance is sure to win over even the most cynical reader. This is a story you'll want to read slowly, just to be able to stay with the characters for a moment longer."--Booklist

"A gorgeous, heartfelt journey of redemption and love." --Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author

"Powerful, emotional, and ultimately hopeful. An unforgettable story that will leave its mark on your heart." --C. J. Redwine, New York Times bestselling author

"Gritty and real, Only a Breath Apart is a story of hope conjured from pain, strength drawn from innocence, and love earned from self-respect. Beautiful, poignant, and fierce." --Kristen Simmons, critically acclaimed author of the Article 5 series

"Meticulously weaves a fragile love story through a minefield of loss, broken trust, and familial curses both real and imagined. Haunting, authentic, and ultimately hopeful." --Tammara Webber, New York Times bestselling author

"A painful, beautiful, and utterly magical story about the family you're born into versus the family you choose." --Trish Doller, author of In a Perfect World

"A touching tale of love and fate straight from the heartland." --Mindy McGinnis, author of The Female of the Species

"Scarlett and Jesse's story will stay in your heart long after you finish the book." --Simone Elkeles, New York Times bestselling author

"Southern Gothic at its finest, this is Katie McGarry's best book to date!" --Miranda Kenneally, author of Catching Jordan and Breathe, Annie, Breathe
