The Deepest Breath by Meg Grehan


    The Deepest Breath by Meg Grehan is a fiction story written in verse about an 11-year-old girl named Stevie. Stevie wants to know everything in life, especially all about the sea which scares her. Stevie also wants to know why she gets a fuzzy feeling in her chest when she talks to her friend, Chloe. 

    Stevie doesn't understand this feeling she has about Chloe and it makes her very confused. Stevie wants to talk to her mother about this feeling but doesn't know how, until one day she decides to. The conversation does not go as planned, making things more difficult for Stevie. After that, Stevie decides to take it upon herself to learn more about this feeling. Eventually, Stevie and her mother have a great conversation about this feeling. Stevie learns to accept the feeling and understands that it is okay to feel that way. 

    I enjoyed this book and it was a very quick read since it was written in verse. I think this book would be great for those who are facing identity or anxiety issues. I would recommend this book to anyone fourth grade and up. I think kids would enjoy the fact that it is a quick read. I think this book would be great for students to just read on their own.
