“A new heart saved her life—but will it help her find out what really happened to its donor?
Seventeen-year-old Leah MacKenzie is heartless. An artificial heart in a backpack is keeping her alive. However, this route only offers her a few years. And with her rare blood type, a transplant isn’t likely. Living like you are dying isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But when a heart becomes available, she’s given a second chance at life. Except Leah discovers who the donor was — a boy from her school — and they’re saying he killed himself. Plagued with dreams since the transplant, she realizes she may hold the clues to what really happened.
Matt refuses to believe his twin killed himself. When Leah seeks him out, he learns they are both having similar dreams and he’s certain it means something. While unraveling the secrets of his brother’s final moments, Leah and Matt find each other, and a love they are terrified to lose. But life and even new hearts don’t come with guarantees. Who knew living, took more courage than dying?”
✨ 2 POV’s which is super good and interesting BUT the layout the e-book in made it super confusing for me to figure out when it swapped from Leah to Matt, I didn’t like it.
✨ one minute I was reading a cute and fluffy ya book and the next it was some mystery supernatural thing? Like what was happening? Verrrryyy confused.
✨ very predictable in my eyes, i guess the little plot twist towards the end and i thought the big “reveal” could have been bigger and better.
✨ I liked that leah even with everything that she went through is still a teenage girl. Worrying about if he likes her, what will she wear, does she looks good – especially since there was a time where she never thought that would happen.
✨ yes to the safe sex and waiting till you’re ready in this book, 100% can get behind more young adult books that talk about that.
✨ book club nerdiness? Yes please.
Overall, this was an enjoyable but predictable book but I would recommend it if you don’t mind reading something where you guess some of the big twists.
thank you to netgalley for an arc
