Learning to Breathe
Janice Lynn Mather
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Canada
Indira Ferguson has done her best to live by her Grammy’s rules. But it hasn’t always been easy, especially living in her mother’s shadow. When Indy is sent to stay in Nassau, she must hide an unwanted pregnancy from her aunt. Completely broke, Indy desperately looks for a safe space to call home. After stumbling upon a yoga retreat, she wonders if she’s found that place. But Indy is about to discover that home is much bigger than just four walls and a roof—it’s about the people she chooses to share it with.
