Breath(e) is a book that stretches boundaries. Though it's mainly about love and gets classified as a romance, it tries hard to show a realistic depiction of the struggle to find love when you feel certain there is something wrong with you (and who hadn't felt that?). It also spends a lot of time on the relationship between the young woman and her mother, who each have very different and contradictory ideas about finding love.

Amazon Description:
College freshman Elizabeth Foster is beginning to come to terms with her attraction to disabled men but she fears others might judge her harshly if they knew.

And that's exactly what happens.

When her mother learns the truth, she does everything in her power to stop Elizabeth from finding the only kind of man she could love. 

Now Elizabeth must learn to trust herself and reject her parents' vision for her future.

(This is the sequel to the novel, (W)hole, but can also be read separately)
