Goodreads Description: 
One hundred and fifty years ago, Earth was destroyed, and the remaining humans fled to the dusty red planet of Jutaire, where the only oxygen is manufactured, food is scarce, and death strikes often.

When Lissa's father discovers Earth still exists, she accidentally inhales the toxic air of Jutaire, and in one breath, discovers she isn't quite human.

Her father hangs for his discovery, and Lissa knows the Chancellors will come for her, for she saw the Earth that night too. With nothing to lose, she sets out to expose the truth. It isn't long before she meets Julian, a beautiful boy who can breathe the toxic air like she can - and shows her that the Jute, the original inhabitants of the planet, are more tangled in their lives than she knows.

But the Chancellors are only pawns in a greater game - one where the Jute control everything. Worse, the Jute plan to leave Jutaire for Earth, but to get there, they need her. And they'll stop at nothing until Lissa is in their clutches, even if they kill every human in the process.
The race for Earth has begun.

Unbreathable is a tale of love, redemption, and sacrifice, and one girl's struggle to find her place in a world where she doesn't belong.

Character Profiles
Name: Lissa
Age: 17
Height: 5’ 6”
Lung Type: Can breathe oxygen and Jutaire’s air without consequence
Inspired by: The girls who feel insubstantial but are not
Likes: Reading, learning new things, Earth, the stars, the color blue, Julian
Dislikes: Chancellor Kole, too much noise, attention


When Unbreathable begins, Lissa feels like she is nothing. She suddenly discovers she isn’t human, her father—the only person she knew—dies, taking with him her only chance at answers. As the story moves on, she’s more important - needed for something other than who she is. But this hardship helps her find out exactly who she is, and that she’s never alone, no matter how it seems.

~~~
Name: Julian
Age: 20
Height: 5’ 11”
Lung Type: Can breathe Jutaire’s air without consequence - too much oxygen deems dangerous
Inspired by: Perfection?
Likes: Drawing, Earth, his mother, the color blue, Lissa
Dislikes: Power, Queen Rhea, Rowan, Gage

Since the death of his mother, all Julian has wanted is to join her. His grief from all that he has lost has led him to hurt himself. He’s broken in ways he doesn’t think can be fixed, and sees the world through a single lens, until it’s shattered by a few words Lissa says before thinking. He’s soft-hearted, cares for everyone but himself, and in the end, it nearly costs him his life.


~~~
Name: Slate
Age: 34
Height: 5’ 10”
Lung Type: Can only breathe oxygen - full human
Inspired by: The opposite of what soldiers are perceived to be on Jutaire
Likes: Earth, peace, fighting, fresh food
Dislikes: Gage, Chancellor Willem, being a tool

Slate’s life is dedicated to serving the humans of Jutaire. As a soldier, he has pledged to do whatever it takes to keep the humans safe, until the ties of his blood pushes him to murder his own brother, striking an irreversible avalanche. When he discovers he was used by the woman he once loved, he doesn’t break down, because it gave him something better, but he is still grieved by the life he never got to live with a certain person.

~~~
Name: Rowan
Age: 20
Height: 6’
Lung Type: Can only breathe the toxic air of Jutaire - full Jute
Inspired by: The Darkling (Shadow & Bone)
Likes: Power, attention, Lissa, Julian - even if he won’t admit it
Dislikes: Humans, Queen Rhea, anyone who stands in his way

Unlike Julian, Rowan’s grief has led him to hurt others and take revenge. The lines between good and evil are nonexistent in his eyes. As Julian’s half-brother, and twin in appearance, Rowan and Julian have identical needs, though their methods of acquiring them aren’t as similar. Rowan’s desire for power and the need to be understood for who he is has blinded him to what is good and inclined him towards evil.
