Some secrets never die. They re just locked away.
 
Alex Dale is lost. Destructive habits have cost her a marriage and a journalism career. All she has left is her routine: a morning run until her body aches, then a few hours of forgettable work before the past grabs hold and drags her down. Every day is treading water, every night is drowning. Until Alex discovers Amy Stevenson. Amy Stevenson, who was just another girl from a nearby town until the day she was found after a merciless assault. Amy Stevenson, who has been in a coma for fifteen years, forgotten by the world. Who, unbeknownst to her doctors, remains locked inside her body, conscious but paralyzed, reliving the past.
 
Soon Alex s routine includes visiting hours at the hospital, then interviews with the original suspects in the attack. But what starts as a reporter s story becomes a personal obsession. How do you solve a crime when the only witness lived, but cannot tell the tale? Unable to tear herself away from uncovering the unspeakable truth, Alex realizes she s not just chasing a story she s seeking salvation.
 
Shifting from present to past and back again, 'Try Not to Breathe' unfolds layer by layer until its heart-stopping conclusion. The result is an utterly immersive, unforgettable debut.
