"Expansive, romantic, and powerful, BREATH LIKE WATER is a novel for any young person who faced doubt and discovered in those murky depths not just strength, but grace."-Gayle Forman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay and I Have Lost My Way

"Jarzab expertly captures the intense pressures of high-stakes athletic competition and the complicated reality of loving someone with mental health struggles. Susannah's family's Mexican American heritage is significant to the plot, and themes of identity and feeling like an outsider in a predominantly white sport are explored authentically... Readers will root for Susannah in her journey to find her place, both in and out of the pool. Racing action and tender romance shine in a story of hard love and harder competition."-Kirkus Reviews

"Hand this to sports lovers with Olympic fever."-Booklist

"Jarzab's latest offers an incisive and unflinching look at competitive swimming in this powerful and compelling sports-themed YA... Fans of Miranda Kenneally and Gayle Forman will find much to love here... A gripping and unapologetic look at the rigor of Olympic sports, this title will win fans whether they're sports buffs or not."-School Library Journal

"A realistic picture of elite sports, emphasizing the financial, physical, and psychological burdens placed on participants... An up-close examination of a swimmer looking beyond her dreams of victory to her place in the world outside the pool."-Publishers Weekly
