Breathe Blog Tour Extract + Giveaway

17 October 2012

                                   
  Today I have the uber cool Breathe Blog Tour stopping over at Ebony Black Lines so I hope you enjoy reading all about it!

Breathe by Sarah Crossan
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Release date: October 11th 2012
Ages: 14+

When oxygen levels plunge in a treeless world, a state lottery decides which lucky few will live inside the Pod. Everyone else will slowly suffocate. Years after the Switch, life inside the Pod has moved on. A poor Auxiliary class cannot afford the oxygen tax which supplies extra air for running, dancing and sports. The rich Premiums, by contrast, are healthy and strong. Anyone who opposes the regime is labelled a terrorist and ejected from the Pod to die.
Sixteen-year-old Alina is part of the secret resistance, but when a mission goes wrong she is forced to escape from the Pod. With only two days of oxygen in her tank, she too faces the terrifying prospect of death by suffocation. Her only hope is to find the mythical Grove, a small enclave of trees protected by a hardcore band of rebels. Does it even exist, and if so, what or who are they protecting the trees from? A dystopian thriller about courage and freedom, with a love story at its heart.
~Blurb from Goodreads.




Would you join the resistance if you found yourself living in the world of Breathe?

I’d definitely join the Resistance if I lived in the pod and found out about the corruption, but I’d probably be responsible for their propaganda literature or something like that. I'm not sure I have enough skill to do anything else and I certainly don’t have Alina’s ruthlessness. Maybe if my job were at The Grove, I could help with the gardening, but not the cooking. Definitely NOT the cooking!



Now here's the first chapter for you all to feast your eyes on! Enjoy!
