    Sequel to Who We Are

    Tyson Thompson graduated high school at sixteen and left the town of Seafare, Oregon, bound for what he assumed would be bigger and better things. He soon found out the real world has teeth, and he returns to the coast with four years of failure, addiction, and a diagnosis of panic disorder trailing behind him. His brother, Bear, and his brother's husband, Otter, believe coming home is exactly what Tyson needs to find himself again. Surrounded by family in the Green Monstrosity, Tyson attempts to put the pieces of his broken life back together.

    But shortly after he arrives home, Tyson comes face to face with inevitability in the form of his childhood friend and first love, Dominic Miller, who he hasn't seen since the day he left Seafare. As their paths cross, old wounds reopen, new secrets are revealed, and Tyson discovers there is more to his own story than he was told all those years ago.

    In a sea of familiar faces, new friends, and the memories of a mother's devastating choice, Tyson will learn that in order to have any hope for a future, he must fight the ghosts of his past.

    Die "Bear, Otter and the kid", "Who we are" und jetzt "The Art of Breathing"- ist eine unglaubliche Reise in das Leben einer Familie, die nicht nur aus Blutsverwandschaft besteht. Man verliebt sich in jeden einzelnen Charakter und die Geschichte fesselt einen, bis zur letzten Zeile. Ein MUST-HAVE

    Okay....I try to be coherent.

    If you have read the first two books, you know what's going to happen.
    This book put me inside out and back again. I hurt and I suffered (but lucky for me it was manageable) and I found my breath again.

    I love how the titles of the books so much define the content, still in the following ones.

    I could go on about all the people,
    about Ty (who is a lot more like Bear than we all thought - but it's true, we were just to blind to see it, he covered it up so well behind his smart comments),
    about Dom (we always knew they were inevitable and damn, that boy was young, too. I'm not blaming him for anything),
    about Bear and Otter (it's so nice to see you all again, Bear, a teacher, really??? *snickers and think it's funny.*),
    Creed and Anna (oh Creed, it's good to know that some people never grow up)
    and Mrs. Paquin (who in this book got all the importance she deserved)

    I could write about Ty's journey to become a person, who can stand on his own feet...but hey, this is what the book is about, too.

    Not even the fact, that this book has a lot of Tyson's internal musings can dampen the fact that I couldn't put it down, that I feel so very happy. Everything in this book was inevitable. So...

    And to all authors who want to end their books with cliffhangers - this is the way it's done. This is an end that makes me happy, satisfied and looking forward in the best way to the next book.

    Thank you T.J. Klune. It was a real pleasure reading this book. I wish you and Eric the best.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Loving TJ Kulne's Words Is Simply Inevitable 17. Juni 2014
    Von Jewel Halperin - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Sometimes there are authors who make you fall in love. Simply put as that.

    And then there's TJ Klune.

    Have you ever read his books? No? Well… the only thing I can say is, I'm jealous of you being able to experience his words for the first time. Go now and look up the first book in the series: Bear, Otter, and the Kid, and buy it. Love it. Reread it until you know each character as if they were part of your family, then move on the second book.

    And now for this one.

    The Art of Breathing brings you Tyson’s (the Kid’s) story. We saw it coming—probably from the first time Dominic was introduced to us… But nothing about their story is predictable. Nothing about their words is repetitive or mundane.

    TJ managed to give Tyson a unique voice that was both alike and inherently different from that of his brother’s. He is neurotic. He is funny, he is a vegetarian hippy at heart. He is an ingenious ecoterorist who loves as fiercely as Bear. He will brainwash you (I swear, I can't even think about meat in the near future—Carl the Cow (almost bull), and Jermaine the Rooster are… well, they’re everywhere!), he will make you so angry. He will make you hang on to every page.

    This book spans a much larger time frame than any other BOATK book. It touches psychological, emotional and familial problems that will tear your heart out. It will make you laugh until your stomach hurts. It will make you cry helplessly because, by God, the words are chosen just right. TJ seems to only get better. And better. And so, so, so much better.

    You will love each and every person (because I swear, they are not just characters). You will take them as your own, wish you were a part of their family—wish that the story would never end since the mere thought of parting with all of them is so inconceivable your heart breaks…

    So go. Enjoy every second.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen AMAZING! 17. Juni 2014
    Von lala-lately - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    Simply amazing! Oh man, how I love these guys. If you're reading, or considering reading this one, you must already be acquainted with Bear, Otter, and the Kid. TJ Klune is a gifted writer. No question. The relationships between the characters here are so nuanced and multi-faceted, and, this book is long so there's plenty of story to delve into. Yes, it's angsty. Yes, it's melodramatic. Of course, there are tears. And earthquakes. The Kid hasn't had it easy so all of that is to be expected. But ultimately, after reading well into the night, the impression I'm left with is a great appreciation for L-O-V-E. Between brothers...between doesn't matter. Klune's writing reminds you to appreciate every moment with loved ones, every safe haven, and to hold on tight to whatever or whomever anchors you. For me, that's what makes his writing so rewarding. So yes, I recommend this one. And full disclosure: as much as I appreciate Klune's writing in this series, I don't always think it translates as well for other novels. His other books are certainly very good; I've probably bought most If not all of them, but for me, writing this family is where he's at his absolute best. I say that because there always seems to be a fan brigade that gushes and praises in their reviews of their favorite authors unequivocally without assessing each work individually on its own merit. To each his own--I'm not detracting from other readers' style or preference. For me, though, that's not the point of writing a review. I try not to gush unless I really really really think it's warranted. And guess what? For this book, it so is!

    So what did I love here? I) Good characterization, I mean the descriptions are enough to invoke a clear mental reel of every scene. II) Incredibly authentic and often funny dialogue. Ty has always been precocious and strangely verbose, and now as a young adult, he's serving up a great sense of humor and fair amount of snark. III) Excellent plot development. And I do mean development in every sense of the word--this story at its core is about growth. These are the years in which the Kid, or Tyson rather, grows up. I love that this starts and ends in the same place but with such a crazy journey in between. And last, IV) familiarity. Klune is at home writing about his boys, and his fondness for them is evident throughout. They are beloved and familiar, and it was great to reconnect with this family that is seemingly unorthodox, but in reality, is just a 'normal' family like any other. The have their good points and bad, neuroses, hopes, disappointments, and everything else that both set them apart and bind them together. Reading about them was a great way to spend a few hours and certainly got me out of my reading slump. Finally, something worth staying up late to read! 5 stars.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Painful for many reasons 3. Juli 2014
    Von pb_reader - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I think I remember why I didn't write reviews for the last two books in this series: it's hard. If this is your first look at a review for this series or even this book, I'm sorry. And I advise you to run away to another one. I have no idea where this is going to go...

    Ty. The Kid. He's a bit of a mess. This isn't a surprise. The 9-yo vegetarian eco-terrorist-in-training was always heading for some sort of meltdown. Luckily, this kid has the best support system anyone could ever hope for. Bear and Otter are amazing parents and have built an amazing family. And he has Dominic. *swoon* I don't know if it's wrong to be crushing on Dom, and I just don't care. We met him as a teen in Who We Are, and he stole my heart then. This is a special guy in so very many ways.

    This book gave me feels. There were teary feels and laugh out loud and OMG and ok, stop talking feels. And the former allows me to excuse the latter. These are patterns I'm getting from this series and Tell Me It's Real. Klune has me laughing my ass off and shedding tears, and I find I forget about the bits where the narrator wanders off down a path of word babble. And it's some epic babble. It's not only self-recognized by the characters, the babble is almost it's own character in the stories. Sometimes it's endearing. Sometimes I find myself skimming.

    So maybe let's talk about the writing. I know it gives me all the feels. And I've figured out that contributes to by squee. But how do I REALLY feel? Occasionally frustrated. There's incredible talent behind these words. Of that, I have no doubt. Love them or hate them, I don't see how you can't have emotional responses to these characters. And that takes skill. I'm invested. So there's the talent. There's also repetition. OMG is there repetition. Subtle, this is not. You will be beat over the head with the concept of breathing and inevitable and a host of other things. Prepare yourself.

    So I'll excuse the rambling and somewhat shoddy editing, because I enjoy the feels. I'll excuse the fact this book is likely 100 pages longer than it has any right to be (and geez where is the publisher on this??), because any author who can make me laugh and cry is worth my time. What I don't find excusable? Mocking your readers. Because that's who WE are. Some of us happen to be women. And some of those women don't want to read a guy going on and on about how every feeling emasculates him DOWN to a vagina. A gaping bloody whole bunch of not funny right there.

    I'm not going to tell anyone not to read this. In fact, I'll probably reread all of these again, and I'll read what's next. Because I do like the writing overall, and I like the feels a bunch. I'll read the next, because Seafare is a good place to be, and I'm not going to hold one misogynistic moment against the entirety of the book. I'm just taking a moment here to say THAT moment sucked. And was painful in a wholly unnecessary and hurtful way towards readers.

    3.0 von 5 Sternen Good, with flaws 29. Juli 2014
    Von The Romance Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Reviewed by Pat Henshaw

    The saga of Bear, Otter, and the Kid continues with laughter and tears, this time from the Kid's viewpoint as he grows into manhood and the people around him change.

    The Kid, Tyson Thompson, who lives with his brother Bear and Bear's husband Otter in Seafare, Oregon, is ready to graduate from high school at age 15 and is dithering about going off to Dartmouth in New Hampshire for college.

    At his graduation party, Tyson, after coming out as gay in his valedictorian speech, spies his best friend Dominic, the love of his life, kissing a woman in a secluded corner. Heartbroken, Tyson goes off to college and refuses to see or speak with Dom during that time.

    When he returns from Dartmouth, having been suspended from school and having been diagnosed with panic disorder and having broken free of the addictive drugs he was taking for it, Tyson is stunned to find Dominic divorced and the father of an autistic son.

    But Tyson can't dwell on Dom's life for the past four years because he's still trying to get himself together and figure out who he really is. He needs to reconcile his panic disorder, his relationship with his family--including his neglectful mother and younger sister--and his homosexuality.

    He's had a short near-relationship with his best friend, bisexual Kori/Corey, with whom he goes to Tucson to meet Kori/Corey's friends. But for the most part, this book is the Kid's coming of age and finding himself in the weird, wacky world of TJ Klune's Seafare.

    Like the other two books, this one is massively repetitive and over-written with some of the digressions being absolutely hysterical while others are easy to skip through. The angst is dialed way past 10 on the emotion meter, and tissues are a necessity to read from page to page.

    Tyson, while likeable in his own way, is at times incredibly annoying, and readers will feel the urge to slap him upside the head and yell, "Get a grip!" But then this is nothing new to the series since Bear, his older brother, was just the same way in previous books.

    Fortunately, Otter is around to bring them both down to nearly reasonable status.

    The surprise in the book is Dom's marriage to Stacey and their subsequent parenthood. Not only does Tyson feel betrayed, but readers will too. Dom has been a solid presence in Tyson's family since the first book, so his abrupt and seemingly clandestine relationship with Stacey seems out of character.

    Also, the addition of Dom's autistic son without anyone mentioning him to Tyson for three years is totally alien from the open character of the family and especially Bear. This is an extended family which yells its problems and frustrations at each other and doesn't keep secrets, especially about a close family member.

    Those who've read the books over the years will find this one disappointing after the high quality of the others. But TJ Klune says he has another one in the works surrounding the brilliant but broken little sister of Tyson and Bear. I, for one, hope that number four will be better than this one was.

    5.0 von 5 Sternen Heartbreaking. Funny. An Outstanding Addition to the Bear, Otter, and the Kid Series 19. Juni 2014
    Von Cindi - On Top Down Under Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf
    Format:Kindle Edition
    **There are spoilers in this review in regards to the first two books in the Bear, Otter, and the Kid series. There may be slight spoilers for The Art of Breathing.**

    At the end of this book in the author’s note TJ Klune says: “They are not real, I know. Those three (referring to Bear, Otter, and Kid). The others. Creed. Anna and Mrs. Paquinn. Except that they are. I’ve known them for years. I know how they think. I know what they are scared of. What they love. What makes them happy.”

    “Ursidae,” he says. “Mustelidae.” Bear. Otter. This is not their story. This is my own.

    Yes, Mr. Klune, they are real. They are very real to your readers, your fans. We have watched them grow to be who they are. We watched Bear and Otter as they fought like hell to finally find their way to each other with every obstacle imaginable thrown in their path. We watched the Kid (Tyson) grow up from a scared little genius boy to being the scared adult we met in The Art of Breathing. We’ve been there through it all… through the hard times and the happy times. They’ve made us laugh out loud one minute and cry like babies the next. We’ve anxiously awaited their next story so we could see how far they’ve come. Bear’s (epic) coming out scene, Ty’s earthquakes, their mother, the introduction of Dominic, and Mrs. P. We’ve been there through it all and they will always be with us. The Art of Breathing was released at the perfect time, meaning quite awhile after Who We Are. It’s hard to see the Kid as a grown-up and even starting this, I felt that would be difficult for me to read. We’ve known him since he was a little boy and we’ve watched him grow up before our eyes. How would we handle an adult Tyson? The Kid having sex? In a relationship? No, not Ty. He’s just a child! I needn’t have worried. TJ Klune wrote the story brilliantly.

    "Bear may be my rock, but Dom is the force that moves me."

    Tyson met Dominic when he was nine and Dom was fifteen. Both having had difficult pasts, they bonded immediately and became the best of friends and Dom was accepted into the family without hesitation. We saw this happen in Who We Are and we also saw Ty’s heart get broken later when he planned a special birthday celebration for Dominic only for him to see something that caused another earthquake, an earthquake Bear was there to help him through. Bear has always been there. Ty’s rock, his protector, his brother, his surrogate father. Otter has always been there too but his brother is Papa Bear. Papa Bear would hurt anyone who dared harm his baby brother, the brother he has been caring for since their mother abandoned them when the Kid was a little boy. Bear and Otter are still the protective and loving ‘parents’ they have been since way back when. There’s Bear’s ADHD and (often) overreacting, but he would take a bullet for those he loves in a heartbeat. There’s Otter and his strength and endless amounts of patience. Then there is the Kid, Tyson. Tyson just wants to rule the world. *grin*

    Tyson is sixteen and the family is leaving the Green Monstrosity (and Dom) to move to New Hampshire for Tyson to attend Dartmouth University. Leaving is hard but it’s the right thing to do, right? He was accepted into an Ivy League school at a young age. He will be doing what he’s always wanted to do. He should be thrilled.

    "All I need to do is breathe. Just breathe. In. Hold for three seconds. I don’t want to go in the bathtub today. Out. Hold for three seconds. There are no earthquakes. I do not shake. In. Hold for three seconds. I am not having a panic attack. I am above it. Out. Hold for three seconds. Everything is fine. Everything is fine."

    But he’s not thrilled.

    All he wanted was to be asked not to go. Sure, he knows it’s not realistic but what teen thinks realistically? Not long after starting college – and leaving Dominic behind – something happens that forces Tyson in a downward spiral. It’s so devastating to him that he refuses to see or speak with his best friend for a very long time. No visits home. No calls made or accepted. His refusal to see Dom when he flew out to try to fix things. Nothing.

    The Art of Breathing takes us back – almost all the way back – to where it all began. It is a gradual build from Tyson as a young boy (and meeting Dom for the first time) to him coming back home to Seafare, Oregon, years later, when things didn’t go quite the way he expected when he took off for university. At almost twenty, Ty is not the same person he was at sixteen. He’s broken. He’s lost. He’s a recovering addict. The panic attacks – or earthquakes, as he and Bear call them – are still a very big part of his life. When he comes back home he has his former girlfriend slash boyfriend Corey/Kori with him. Corey/Kori is bigendered and whether he/she is Corey or Kori depends on the character’s emotional place at that particular time. I fell in love with both. You can not meet this character and not fall head over heels in love. Corey/Kori’s story needs to be told and I have no doubt it will be later down the road. I hope so anyway.

    Coming home after so long away is difficult for Ty and there is always the fear of running into his former best friend, Dom. Dom had his own issues while Ty was away and his life is completely different from how it was four years before. Both Dom and Tyson broke my heart. Hell, the entire book broke my heart. When Ty sees Dom for the first time in a long time, it doesn’t go well (to put it mildly). Dom has secrets that come out (at the worst possible time) and Ty is once again that lost child he has been running from. That’s what Ty does….. runs. Or at least that’s what he says he does. Personally, I didn’t see it as running. I saw him being hurt by one of the people he thought he could trust above all others and choosing to not to be slapped in the face with that pain. Granted, had he dealt with things earlier he would not have been in the state he was in at twenty, but I’m like Bear, very protective. You can’t not be protective of Ty.

    "I realize that I’m in love with my best friend: Bear’s going to s*** himself silly when he finds out about this. It’s impossible. It can’t be like this. It’s not supposed to be like this. But it’s inevitable."

    Dom and Tyson’s relationship is a very slow build. Sure, they were best friends for years but it takes a lot for them to get back where they were, or hell, even more than what they were. The same cast of characters we’ve grown to love are back – Anna and Creed, and now we have their little boy, JJ. JJ is a blast and so is Creed. I’ve not made it a huge secret that I’ve never been Creed’s biggest fan, but he wormed his way into my heart a little in this book. Mrs. P is still there in her own way and each time she was mentioned I got teary. She was more Ty and Bear’s mother than their biological one ever was and my heart hurts even now over how she was taken away in Who We Are.

    Other characters are introduced to Ty and Bear’s world, though they aren’t new to TJ Klune’s loyal fans. Vince and Paul and Helena Handbasket (from Tell Me It’s Real) and even Daddy from the same story is there. I so can’t wait to see Helena Handbasket (aka Sandy) have her own story. We know who her man will be. Now we wait for the author to write their HEA. We can’t forget Johnny Depp, the homophobic parrot, and Wheels, the two legged dog of Paul’s. All of these characters (as well as the ones we know and love from Bear and Otter’s world) are very important to The Art of Breathing and each help Ty and Dom in their own way. I can’t wait to see Paul and Bear meet. That will be an experience for the readers. They are so much alike that it’s scary. Can you just picture them trying to talk over each other? I laugh now thinking about it.

    “My word,” Sandy says with a purr. “The boys just must be all over you. Honey, you should seriously consider just tattooing ‘twink’ across your forehead and ‘open for business’ across your ass. It’d save you a lot of trouble.”

    The title of this book is fitting and all who have followed this story from the beginning will understand it. For those who don’t, it’s all about Ty learning how to just breathe. There’s more meaning behind it but you had to watch Tyson grow up in order to understand the seriousness of him needing to learn how to just breathe. Bear and Otter and Dom are the only people who understand it and who can help him through his episodes, though he must find a way to do it on his own before he can move forward, not only in his life, but with Dominic.

    This is classic TJ Klune. If you’ve ever read even one story by him you know that he can have you giggling out loud in one paragraph and crying ugly tears the next. The closer it came to release date the more GIFS and photos I saw on social media of a box of tissues. You seriously need them with this story. Ty has a lot of problems he must overcome and each one had this particular reader crying like a little girl. Bear and Otter’s story was hard, but this is the Kid – Tyson – the little boy we’ve watched grow up and who we’ve grown to love over the years. You want to reach into the book and just hold him until his earthquakes go away. You want to grab Dom (and a female character who is central to the story) and just shake them. You want to just fix everything for the Kid. Bear tries, as do the others, but in the end Tyson knows that in order to be ‘whole’ he must do it himself. Watching him do it was one of the hardest and most satisfying things I’ve ever read.

    "Here are the places of my youth. Here are the things I’ve tried to forget. Here they all are, spread out around me, and it’s like I’ve never left. Here is where it all began. And here is where it begins again."

    I always worry about sequels, especially in a series I love as I do this one. I loved Who We Are even more than Bear, Otter, and the Kid, but this is Ty! The Kid! What if the author didn’t do right by him? Not only did he do right by our favorite eco-terrorist in training, but he had me cheering for the young man all the way to the end.

    Other things of note about The Art of Breathing -

    - I may never eat meat again. Carl the cow. Enough said.
    - Tyson is still capable of writing epic poetry, even if it now makes me cry instead of giggle.
    - The Epilogue. I swear I love Bear more every single time he’s on-page. The ending was absolutely brilliant. Not surprising (come on, you saw that coming a mile away!) but still excellent. I am thrilled to know there will be more to the story.
    - I don’t know the last time I cried like I did reading this book. TJ Klune writes emotions well.
    - I don’t know the last time I laughed like I did reading this book. Not many can write humor the way TJ Klune does.
    - The dedication. It’s dedicated to one of our own, Eric Arvin, and the love of TJ’s life. I had tears running down my face before I ever got to the first chapter.

    Dom and Ty, though it takes awhile to get there, do ultimately come together. It is beautiful. There is still a bit of a road ahead for them to truly be where they need to be but no doubt they will someday be where Bear and Otter are. I look forward to being along for the ride.

    “You didn’t make me gay, Bear. You’re not some kind of gay fairy princess who can magically turn others into homos by shooting rainbows out your ass. That’s not how it works. You of all people should know that.”

    Note that if you haven’t read the first two books in the series, you won’t appreciate everything Ty must overcome in this one. I feel that you should start from the beginning and see everything that leads to The Art of Breathing. Otherwise, I don’t think you will get the emotions portrayed in it.

    Another outstanding addition to the Bear, Otter, and the Kid world. I can’t wait to see where our favorite family goes next.

    I love the cover.
