Uprooted from his home and sent to live with his estranged father, seventeen-year-old William's world is feeling tenuous at best. When he's unexpectedly dragged into a situation in which he has no choice but to help an abused four-year-old boy, William's world is rocked to the core as he discovers the truth behind the mysterious young boy's stories of extreme sexual abuse. He and the boy are connected in ways that William can't even imagine and as horrible memories begin to flood his consciousness, William's rage drives him to steal a neighbor's guns, convinced he must hurt those responsible for causing a boy so much pain and betrayal. How William finds the love and compassion he needs to make the right choices is the heart and pulse of this riveting verse novel. Inspired by a true story, Breath to Breath, explores what hurt and healing really mean - to survive you hold your breath, but to live you must exhale.

About the Author:

Craig Lew's storytelling career began even before he had learned to write. As a child, he used his father's tape recorder to capture tales about strange planets and scary creatures. His favorite story openings at that time were, "Once upon a junk yard heap ..." or "It was a dark and stormy night." A movie producer, director, award-winning author, illustrator, and screenwriter, Craig still favors a Hitchcockian thriller over a broad teen comedy. Regardless of the genre, he believes the best stories involve a hero who is either seeking love or giving love. At heart he's a big, mushy romantic. Craig spends his days with his fiancé in a house on a hill with the corgi land seals Yobo and Zeekie, a three-footed Boston Terrier named Moogie, and Smittens, the kitten with the marshmallow mittens.

"I strive to spread good karma. Artistically, I enjoy pushing the envelope because I believe this makes more room in the middle. I believe the keys to success are dreaming big, working hard, and being nice." - Craig Lew
