My review of "I will Breathe" by Regina Puckett

 I gave it five stars on Amazon today. Even though it is meant for a younger audience, I found I really enjoyed it. Regina has a way of presenting a story that is well written and a delight to read. The main character, Liberty finds herself all alone after the man she called father died in an airship that travels here and there in a world destroyed in a great war. Love is not part of her vocabulary, she doesn't have time for it until a robot called "boy" is forced into her life after the man that created the robot has died. Boy thinks Liberty is his sister and sets out to teach her what love is. Regina introduces a fine cast of characters in the story as she shows that no one can live life alone forever, humans crave contact and interactions with other humans even when they won't admit it.  The boy, keeper of knowledge teaches Liberty love is all that is missing. Good short story winning several awards.

Enjoy the book, I did. Talk back, I'm listening and have a great day.
