Today we have a sneak peek of Laurie Boris’ new book, Drawing Breath:
Students often fall in love with their teachers. Despite warnings from her mother, that is exactly what sixteen-year-old Caitlin Kelly does. But Daniel Benedetto isn’t just any art teacher. Not only is he more than twice Caitlin’s age, he rents the Kellys’ upstairs apartment and suffers from cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening disease.
Caitlin watches in torment as other people, especially women, treat Daniel like a freak because of his condition. Because to her, Daniel is not a disease, not someone to pity or take care of but someone to care for, a friend. As Caitlin’s art education progresses, her feelings for Daniel grow into love and desire. In a well-meaning yet naive gesture, Caitlin crosses the line and interferes with his private life, sparking a chain of events with devastating consequences. Neither of them will ever be the same again.
