Alex is sinking. Slowly but surely, she’s cut herself off from everything but her one true love – drink. Until she’s forced to write a piece about a coma ward, where she meets Amy.  
Amy is lost. When she was fifteen, she was attacked and left for dead in a park. Her attacker was never found. Since then, she has drifted in a lonely, timeless place. She’s as good as dead, but not even her doctors are sure how much she understands.
Alex and Amy grew up in the same suburbs, played the same music. flirted with the same boys.  And Alex begins to investigate the attack, she opens the door to the same danger that has left Amy in a coma.
 I love reading suspense novels by new authors. Holly Seddon has written a page turning suspense that kept me glued to every page. I can most certainly see that Holly Seddon is going to be a rising star of crime novels in the future. Try Not To Breathe is a must buy must read. The story is set in Tunbridge Wells, which is about 27 miles away from where I live. Amy had a boyfriend, but Amy Stevenson had a secret that none of her friends knew about. In 1995 Fifteen year old Amy Stevenson disappeared on her way home from a Grammar School in Edenbridge Kent.  Amy was found but barely alive and taken to Tunbridge Wells Royal Infirmary. Alex Dale a journalist is writing a piece on Amy Stevenson’s as she has suffered a high level of trauma leaving her unable to communicate with any one.  Although Jacob is a married man with his wife expecting a baby, he has troubles of his own but he regularly visits Amy in hospital.  At the time of Amy Stevenson’s attack no one was never found that did this to Amy. Now Alex is investigating the attack, she open doors to same danger that left Amy in a coma.
I would like to thank love reading for sending me this copy to read and review.
