(Although this short story does reflect back to a character’s youth the Just Breathe series is 18+)
Letting Go by Kendall Grey is a short story from the Just Breathe Trilogy Letting Go touches on Zoe and her mother when she was 12. This was a fantastic short that really allows you to view deeper into Zoe’s history and some of the fundamentals of a turning point in her life. Letting Go was a magically written and emotionally driven piece of work. If you have not read Inhale or Exhale you are truly missing out. Not just on the depth of this story, but a beautiful world with an equally beautiful story. I feel so connected to this character. Maybe it is the magical pull she feels towards the whales. Maybe it is the way she feels different. I can SO empathize with her. I loved this quote -
“Sometimes growing up meant letting go of the crutches people clung to in order to make it from day to day. Things like doubt and lack of confidence and differences.
Zoe was not a normal kid. She would never be normal. But being different was okay. If it meant seeing the world from another perspective, maybe she should accept that as the best angle for her and move on.”
Letting Go is probably one of the best short stories I have ever read in my life, and this is in no way an exaggeration. It brought such a deeper understanding to a character in a way I have never seen written before. You don’t want to miss this trilogy.
I rate Letting Go 5 out of 5 Bullets!
