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 the award-winning Malorie Blackman.

Review quote

"A powerful story about friendship, loyalty and family around this topical and controversial issue" Guardian "Engrossing story" Daily Telegraph "A sensitive and informative story that provides a vivid insight into transgenics and xenotransplantations and still manages to squeeze in the inevitable guinea-pig and piggy in the middle jokes" Independent "Great for older readers able to tackle issues" First "A bizarre yet strangely realistic book ... The plot is well developed with many unexpected twists" The Times
