You’re thirteen. All you want is a normal life. But most normal kids don’t need heart transplants.

So there’s this doctor. He says there’s a chance for you. But he also says it’s experimental, controversial and risky. And it’s never been done before.

Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, this is a powerful, thought-provoking story from Malorie Blackman.

  1. I am completely in love with this book! I borrowed it from the library because my friend recommended it, and I finished it in an hour (an hour that was very well spent!)! It is a sorrowful story, makes my feel sympathy for Cameron (the main character) and it raised my awareness for people with problems around the world. I am definitely buying this book for my library at home. Thank you so much Malorie, please keep writing wonderful books!
    Thank you.

  2. I LOVED this book as it is about friendship, loyalty and life changing decisions. It is a book nobody will be able to put down!

  3. Malorie is able to engage readers what ever their age and it feels like you are with the character and watching them all the time. I felt my heart ache during this book as well…

  4. This book is soo interesting, it really makes you think about what can come in life. Im not gonna lie but…i kinda cried at the end. Its so deep but amazing.

  5. AMAZING! This book has made me think about loyalty and what I should and shouldn’t tell people! It is a great story line and it’s a book NO-ONE will be able to put down! It engages the reader and it is something you can just picture in your head! My school rented this book from my local library and I always want to go there and keep reading the book! Amazing! Best book I have ever read! I really recommend this book!
