'Barely out of childhood, I had already commited the irreparable.' Beautifully and simply written with an astonishing maturity, this first novel narrates the story of nineteen-year-old Charlene Boher. Charlene recounts her past from her prison cell, a past which had begun banally enough - a great friendship between herself and Sarah. Charlene, a solitary, unpopular, tortured and breathless adolescent had been 'rescued' by Sarah and they'd developed an intense friendship. However, when Charlene falls in love with Maxime, the jealous Sarah begins to test and provoke her, to humiliate her in public and reproach her persistently - until she can take it no longer, with disastrous and shocking consequences. This is a very frank and convincing account of a possessive, ambiguous and abusive friendship.

From the Inside Flap:

Beautifully and simply written with an astonishing maturity, Breathe narrates the story of nineteen-year-old Charlene Boher. From her prison cell, Charlene recounts her past, and tells of a life which began banally enough. As a solitary and unpopular adolescent, she developed an intense friendship with the enigmatic Sarah, and began at last to feel accepted…

After a brief idyllic period however, their relationship sours, and when Charlene falls in love with Maxim, Sarah's manipulative nature is brought to the fore. When the jealous Sarah begins to reproach and humiliate Charlene, the consequences are disastrous and events take a shocking turn.

This is a very frank and convincing account of a possessive and ambiguous friendship.

Anne-Sophie was born in 1984 and is still at school. She lives in Metz and Breathe is her first novel.

From the Back Cover:

My name is Charlene Boher and I'm nineteen years old. I've been stuck here nearly two years now, watching the same day go by. I was barely out of childhood when I committed the irreparable. The night of September 7, two years ago, I killed.
