I really enjoyed Natalia Sylvester’s previous YA novel, Running, and have been really looking forward to Breathe and Count Back from Ten. I am especially excited about the disability and Peruvian rep in this one. Both I would love to see more of in books by Latinx authors. This one comes out next week, so be sure to add it to your TBR!

“Verónica has had many surgeries to manage her disability. The best form of rehabilitation is swimming, so she spends hours in the pool, but not just to strengthen her body. Her Florida town is home to Mermaid Cove, a kitschy underwater attraction where professional mermaids perform in giant tanks . . . and Verónica wants to audition. But her conservative Peruvian parents would never go for it. And they definitely would never let her be with Alex, her cute new neighbor. She decides it’s time to seize control of her life, but her plans come crashing down when she learns her parents have been hiding the truth from her—the truth about her own body.”
