But the consequences of her past flood her mind with memories that are so painful they stop her from breathing...then the blackouts come.
Then Charlie meets similarly-distant Tyler, who’s also new to school. Tyler, forced to leave promising career possibilities, elite schooling and all he'd ever known behind him in Melbourne - and then some - also finds himself on the run from someone else's mistake.
And sometimes, mistakes have serious implications on our lives, especially if the mistakes are made by someone we love. Falling for Tyler comes with a price but one Charlie is prepared to make.
Set in Sydney, Breathless will appeal to fans of “Kill The Music” by Nansi Kunze.
