Sinopsis: Ryan no estaba buscando amor verdadero. El solo quería una razón para vivir

Sinopsis: Ryan no estaba buscando amor verdadero. El solo quería una razón para vivir. Ryan, de dieciséis años, acaba de salir de un hospital psiquiátrico y esta intentando rehacer su vida después de su intento de suicidio fallido. Pasa la mayor parte de su tiempo en la cascada local, en parte para evitar a su sobre protectora madre, pero sobre todo porque estar debajo de la aplastante fuerza del agua lo hace sentir vivo–es una forma de probarse a si mismo.

A dark and provocative novel from the author of The Secret Year Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it's the only thing that makes him feel alive. He's sixteen, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, brimming with life and energy, and asking questions about Ryan's depression that no one else has ever been brave enough--or cared enough--to ask. Ryan isn't sure why he trusts Nicki with his darkest secrets, but that trust turns out to be the catalyst that he desperately needs to start living again. Jennifer R. Hubbard has created a riveting story about a difficult but important subject.

Love Me
Good writing. Witty. I only gave the story 3 stars because the plot could have been SO much better. For example, at one point there are hints of a very ,bad thing the main character did. The “bad thing” was referred to several times, before revealing what had actually happened. I was beginning to think we were going to find out the main character was a serial killer or some other horrific fact. Turned out to be a very small incident.

It's a sad but true book. Thousands of teens commit or try to commit suicide all the time. But it had a happy ending with lots of twists and turns along the way.
Folsa
I barely made it through this book. Its not great but its not the worst book Ive ever read.
Chankane
I loved this book .I would highly recommend it to anyone. It talks realistically about suicide without making it seem enjoyable.

It was emotional ride but I loved the ending it showed the challenges some people and others have no clue about

Jennifer R. Hubbard’s well-written novel Try Not to Breathe deals with the harrowing experience of teenage depression and suicide attempts. The reader meets Ryan Turner after he has been discharged from a mental hospital because he had tried to kill himself. Hubbard dives deeply into the troubled mind of Ryan so the reader can understand what isolation is really about. How teens might actually consider suicide. But she also demonstrates how teens can come out the other side of that depression by slowly allowing themselves to break down barriers and talk to others, to find people who truly care.

The characters in Hubbard’s Try Not to Breathe are vivid and alive. Ryan befriends Nicki, not because he wants a friend or likes her but because she won’t leave him alone. Ryan trusts no one at the beginning of the story. He keeps to himself and feels invisible. His only friends are Val and Jake. They were inmates together at the mental institution. Ryan “chats” with them via social media. However, he needs to realize the importance of personal connections to others if he is to cope with his emotions and forgive himself for his suicide attempt.

But this story is more than depression and suicide. Try Not to Breathe is about hope. It’s about believing in yourself enough to trust others. It’s about finding true friendship so as not to be alone, or as Ryan explains it, to build a pane of glass around yourself, to isolate yourself from others. Hubbard’s Try Not to Breathe is a truly meaningful read.

When unease and insecurity morph into shame, Ryan Turner is unable to fight the rising tide. Although he didn't follow through with his suicide attempt, thanks to his father's return home, the fallout continues to rule his life. Neither his stay at Patterson Hospital, the antidepressants he takes, nor going to a new high school seem to pull him out of his cosmic funk.
It takes Nicki Thornton, a girl who shares his fascination with standing under a waterfall in the woods, and her own wrestling with suicide (her father's) to start Ryan on a path to healing. It's a very bumpy one, filled with flashbacks for both teens, lies, shame and eventual confessions. This is a very good look at the complexity of teen depression and how easy it can be for parents to miss clues and/or over react. Jennifer sent me a copy to read and review.
I'm hardly an expert on suicide but I've always thought it was preceded by a momentous event, which after thinking more about it doesn't make any sense at all. If it was, less people would be successful in their attempts because others around them would be watching or worrying that this might happen. More often than not it seems that if a person commits suicide, others around are puzzled and wonder how it all came to this. They tell themselves, if they just would've seen the signs they could've done something. This is the case with Ryan.

Ryan has everything going for him. His parents have money, he lives in an amazing new house, and he's a high school junior with his whole life ahead of him. Yet, Ryan tried to commit suicide earlier in the year and is trying to get back into a "normal" life after coming out of a mental hospital. He's heard the rumors about him in school but no one will actually come out and say anything to his face. That is until he meets Nicki, a fellow high-school student. Nicki, it seems, does not possess an edit button, and has little in the way of inhibitions. (I loved this girl!) She just comes out and asks any question about anything, and Ryan, in spite of himself, can't help but answer. Nicki has a tragic past that makes Ryan feel obligated to help her so he ends up telling her things he hasn't even told his doctors. Before Ryan knows it, he's getting close to Nicki in ways he never expected!

I really enjoyed this story. Even though it's about a very serious and a potentially very depressing subject, the story felt very positive throughout. It really makes you think about how you treat people on a daily basis and how your actions could possibly affect them. It also makes you think about how profoundly people are affected by suicide, even when it's an unsuccessful attempt. I look forward to reading more from Jennifer Hubbard.
