A new heart saved her life-but will it help her find out what really happened to its donor?

C. C. Hunter's This Heart of Mine is a haunting, poignant tale about living and dying, surviving grief, guilt, and heartache, while discovering love and hope in the midst of sadness.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice read This book took a very serious subject death organ donation but put a nice teen novel spin to it and didn't make anything too heavy. I was a little worried at first that it would be a bit much but the author said just enough to keep you interested and informed without making you feel like you were in the medical field and witnessed the death first hand, well done. The characters in this book were the best I loved how they had their own troubles but they didn't let it take over who they are as a person. Each character had lots of depth and even if I didn't agree with what they were saying I could understand why they would. They were very easy to relate to.
