Dani was born with her heart on the wrong side of her body. In her 15 years of life, she’s had more doctor’s appointments, X-rays, and tests, and eaten more green hospital Jell-O than she cares to think about. Fourteen-year-old Amanda is a competitive gymnast, her body a small package of sleek muscles, in perfect health. The two girls don’t know each other, don’t go to the same school, don’t have any friends in common. But their lives are about to collide.
Acclaimed author Jill Wolfson tackles this fascinating story with her trademark honesty and wit.
This is the story of a young gymnast who gave up her heart on the operating table— and gifted it to another, who was going to die without it.
An amazing story of the organ transplant process, as seen through the eyes of two teenagers, one who lost a sister, and the other who gained a chance at life, written beautifully for the YA audience.
Luci and Evan are like Romeo and Juliet, so beautifully matched here. If there was an award for “duet,” I’d nominate them.
