Jukebooks: Breathless by Jessica Warman and Breathe by Abbi Glines

Two very different books — two very different songs.

Breathless by Jessica Warman is about Katie, a girl keeping so much of her life secret that it’s hard to breathe. Breathe by Abbi Glines is a light summer romance.

The song Breathless by the Corrs is about the exhilaration of hurtling towards romance, kind of like the plot in Breathe. On the other hand, Breathe by Anna Nalick is a haunting song of pain that must be endured.

The songs, then, are switched to match the mood of the books with corresponding titles. Listen to see if you would agree!

I have been a librarian working with youth since 1998, beginning at the Alachua County Library District, and later at Palm Harbor Library and Nashville Public Library. Possibly because of the edgy nature of teen literature, or possibly because my maturation process crashed at the age of fifteen years-old, I love YA books. And I enjoy working with YAs as well, although I'm just as happy doing Toddler Time. By some good fortune, I have served on a number of YALSA selection committees (Outstanding Books for the College Bound, Popular Paperbacks, Alex Award, Odyssey Award, Nonfiction Award, Morris Award, and Printz) as well as a smattering of process committees. Currently I am serving on the YALSA Board. .I also review books for VOYA, School Library Journal's Adult4Teen Blog, BookPage, and Booklist.
