 I think the blurb smack dab on the front of the book, the one from Roxane Gay herself, sums it up best. Early in the book, Juliet writes a letter to her feminist writer icon, saying, “I know you’re not a Magic 8 ball. You’re just some lady who wrote a book. But I fall asleep with that book in my arms because words protect hearts and I’ve got this ache in my chest that won’t go away.” Juliet Takes A Breath is a book you can fall asleep holding.

Two friends know their traditional-minded parents won't approve of their non-Korean love interests, so they pretend to date each other to take the heat off. What could go wrong? What seems like a simple premise is the vehicle for a hilarious, moving, and surprising exploration of growing up second generation American, realizing your parents are only human, and finding yourself along the way. With its playful use of language and relatable characters, this book is frankly easy to fall in love with.
