I have not yet read this book.

I rate Breathing Underwater by Alex Flinn a three and a half out of five. I recommend this book for people who enjoy reading about courtcases and the outcome of them involving teenagers. ***plot may be revealed***
The main theme of this book is Friendship. This is the main theme because Nick struggles to keep his friends after the incident with his girlfriend Caitlin bringing him to court and having to go to Family Violence Class. Nick lost Caitlin and his Bestfriend Tom.
Overall I enjoyed reading this book it was a nice read for the summer and i completely recommend it. ( )

Narrated by Jon Cryer (yes, that Jon Cryer). Throughout the first disc this came off as a ho-hum standard romance. But when Nick's violent tendencies first appear, I was shocked to realize I had been sympathizing with Nick up to that point. From then on, I was interested in the working mind of this young abuser and seeing his perspective. His perspective and actions are unacceptable, of course. Nick comes around thanks to his anger management class, his introspective journal writing, and the tragedy of Leo. His turnaround seemed to fall in line almost too easily. Still, a valuable book for teens who might be in similar situations, whatever their side. ( )

Nick is a sixteen year old boy who seems to have it all. He is popular, handsome, and lives a charmed life. But when Nick starts to date Caitlin his friends see a different side of him. He has to attend anger management classes after he and Caitlin break up. It takes Nick a while to see that he does have a serious problem with controlling his emotions and not taking them out on other people.
I loved this book. It was a very fast read. The court orders Nick to go to anger management classes and to keep a journal of how he got to this place in his life. The book is written from his point of view and in present and past. There are many different conflict throughout the story; Nick and his father, Nick and Caitlin and Nick and his best friend. The setting is modern times in Miami and at school and the anger management class. This book would be great for high school student’s boys or girls. I love the message in the book and how we see Nick come to terms with his problem.
I would have the students write a poem about something personal that they have never told anyone before much like the Poem Nick write for his English class. I would have the students keep a journal and write what they thought about what Nick or another character was going through in the book. They would have to write after every chapter too.

Excellent story of the inner thoughts of an abused teenage boy who falls for a shy girl and in trying to overcome his own demons, becomes an abuser. Loved the journal-entry format. Satisfying ending. ( )
