Breathless (2020) by Jennifer Niven
You were my first. Not just sex, although that was part of it, but the first to look past everything else into me. Some of the names and places have been changed, but the story is true.
A coming of age novel featuring Claudine who is just days away from graduation. Counting down the days until school finishes and summer begins before heading off to college. Chatting to her friends about plans for the summer, boys and virginity.
Her plans go out of the window as her parents announce that they are separating. Forcing her to keep quiet about it, for the time being, walking through her final days at high school feeling as the floor has been taken from beneath her. Instead of the carefree summer, she had planned with her best friend, she is now spending it with her mom on a remote island whilst her mom researches her family history.
She doesn’t want to be there, she doesn’t want to hear from her dad and she’s fallen out with her best friend (who is too loved up to pay attention to her). Then she meets Miah on the island who despite a rocky start shows her the beauty of the island as well as opens her eyes to the world.
