Then there is the small matter of falling in love with a dead boy.

Zoe must make a choice. Is she ready to face her fears and live her life the way that others expect of her? Or is she already living the life she was meant to live?
The Air that I Breathe is a story of choices, of possibilities, and of chasing dreams.
