Bea, Alina, and Quinn are on the run. They started a rebellion and were thrown out of the pod, the only place where there's enough oxygen to breathe. Bea has lost her family. Alina has lost her home. And Quinn has lost his privileged life. Can they survive in the perilous Outlands? Can they finish the revolution they began? Especially when a young operative from the pod's Special Forces is sent after them. Their only chance is to stand together, even when terrible circumstances force them apart. When the future of human society is in danger, these four teens must decide where their allegiances lie. Sarah Crossan has created a dangerous, and shattered, society in this wrenching, thought-provoking, and unforgettable post-apocalyptic novel.

I loved this book! This was a brilliant sequel to Breathe and follows the Resistance in the Pod and the Resistance within Sequoia, a sister facility to The Grove, featured in book one.
This followed Bea, Quinn, Alina and Ronan and a variety of secondary characters. All four main characters have grown from the actions of book 1 and Crossan has written the character development excellently. I particularly liked Ronan and Bea's interactions and Ronan's development over the two books. Jude Caffrey was also a good example of character development. In terms of secondary characters, Silas was particularly good. Cousin to Alina, he was an openly gay character. He was just brilliant.
I also found Sequoia very interesting. The Grove and Sequoia show two different methods of reaction to a post-apocalyptic world - one tries to grow trees in order to return oxygen to the world and one attempts to selectively breed humans who can cope with the lowered level of oxygen in the atmosphere.
I also wanted to cry at the ending. It was almost perfect.
