Don’t Breathe a Word by Holly Cupala

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Publisher: HarperCollins/Teen

Publish Date: January, 2012

Goodreads Synopsis:

Joy Delamere is suffocating.

From asthma, from her parents, and from her boyfriend, Asher, who is smothering her from the inside out. She can take his cruel words, his tender words...until the night they go too far.

To escape, Joy sacrifices her suburban life to find the one who offered his help, a homeless boy called Creed. He introduces her to a world of fierce loyalty, to its rules of survival, and to love—-a world she won’t easily let go.

Set against the backdrop of the streets of Seattle, Holly Cupala’s power­ful new novel explores the subtleties of abuse, the secrets we keep, and the ways to redemption. But above all, it is an unflinching story about the extraordinary lengths one girl will go to discover her own strength.


“His eyes strayed to my lips. I licked them…waited…
Any second. Oh, God…
But he didn’t. Instead, a flash of fury passed over his face—almost imperceptible, but still there.” (Paperback, pg. 147)
