The lives of two very different teenage girls become literally connected after one unexpectedly dies, and the other receives her heart.
Fourteen-year-old Amanda is a competitive gymnast, sleek-muscled and in perfect health. Fifteen-year-old Dani was born with her heart on the wrong side of her body; she’s been in and out of hospital all her life. The two girls don’t know each other – and never will. Yet their lives are about to collide. When Amanda suffers a blood clot and dies during a gym competition, the donation of her heart means renewed life for Dani and several other donor recipients… A fascinating and unusual story on an important and topical issue.
