Exhale - Jennifer Snyder The Characters:Katie – I don’t know if I really liked Katie too much, at first she was ok… but I didn’t really like the way she treated Derek or Kyle. She was obviously in love with one of them, and the other one was obviously in love with her. It is always an interesting triangle when it involves siblings, and I am always excited to see which direction it will take. However, the way Katie handled things, it reminded me a bit of Bella from New Moon, totally helpless and useless… which kind of pissed me off because I feel that Katie could have been portrayed in a much different light. Derek – Ah the good twin… Derek is the perfect teenager, he is respectful, has a job, is generally the one who looks after his brother when they go to a party, he is also a total sweetheart. When tragedy strikes he is really the one left dealing with things on his own because Katie is wallowing in her own guilt. At first I didn’t really like him too much either, because he was hiding things from his brother… even if it was with the intent to not hurt him. I think if he had just been upfront and honest things would have turned out much different. Kyle – The rebel twin… I liked Kyle right from the start, probably because he was the bad boy and well I have a weak spot for bad boys! Kyle liked to party, he was a major flirt, he was also super hot and had such charm. I was rooting for Kyle the whole time, and while the storied played out I was increasingly worried over what was coming. I really wish we got to see more of Kyle, because I think that most the time he was just showing one side of him and I think there was so much more to himWhat I liked: The story was very well written, and I will totally be checking out more of Jennifer Snyder’s books. I did enjoy how the love triangle progressed… as sad as it was, and as upset as I was over what happened… the message was loud and clear… know matter what happens, life goes on…. I really like a story with a good message. What I didn’t like so much:I didn’t like that the book was so short, I felt like it was rushing through so many important things. I also think that although the book was very well written, right from the start it was easy to see where it would end, not the exact conclusion but it was quite clear from the beginning that it wouldn’t be good. Last remarks:Overall I thought this book was ok, as I have said it is well written, and the message was something that everyone really has to at some point face throughout there lives. If you are looking for a story that will get your emotions involved, but are short on time this is totally the book you will want to check out.
