Gracie and her friend Laura are both on the synchronized swim team in their hometown of Cochrane, Alberta.

Gracie is focused and hard-working, eager to be chosen for a solo. Laura is more relaxed about synchro, wanting above all to enjoy the sport. As the swim meet nears, these different approaches strain their friendship and threaten the success of the team itself.

Lively and good humoured, Breathing Not Required is a novel about competition, jealousy, and the importance of friendship.

"Bossley manages to mix nice, non-technical descriptions of synchro moves and some tense competitive moments in a story that is mostly about the give and take of friendship."

- Cathy Macdonald Daily News
