Jack is not a normal boy. He can talk to ghosts. In his new home, an aging farmhouse, he meets the Ghost Mother, a grief-stricken spirit who becomes very attached to him: too attached. He learns that the Ghost Mother is preying in the cruelest imaginable way on four child ghosts who are trapped in the house, stealing their energy to sustain her own. Before Jack can figure out how to help them, the Ghost Mother takes possession of his real mothers body. Jack wants to fight back, but he has severe asthma and risks fatal attacks with any physical exertion. It will take all his resources, and his mothers as well, to fight off the Ghost Mother and save the ghost children from a horrible fate.

    Breathe was published May 15, 2017, and is by Cliff McNish. Breathe is a book about a boy named Jack, who has a gift. He can talk to ghosts! He meets four ghost children and a ghost who used to be a mother and asks Jack if he can be his ghost mother. I really liked this book because it is a very exciting, mysterious book all about ghosts. The reading level is about third grade to fifth. I think anyone who loves mysteries and scary books would love to read Breathe.
