Cold Hands, Warm Heart By Jill Wolfson Pub. Date: March 2009 4 out of 5 stars PG-13 Profanity and Sexual References Recommended Dani needs a heart.soon. Amanda has one. Dani was born with a weak heart on the wrong side of her body. She has gone through surgery after surgery, hospital after hospital, and pills after pills. Yet nothing has helped. Now at the age of 15, her life is coming to an end. She has never gone to a dance, never had a boyfriend, never snuck out late, never played sports. never lived. As a perfect transplant candidate, Dani is at the top of the list. But first, someone needs to die. Amanda is the quintessential daughter. She is athletic, smart, pretty, responsible, and confident. But one accident is going to ruin everything. Neither of them have met, but tragedy is going to bring them together. Cold Hands, Warm Heart was exceptionally written with very well-rounded scenes. The use of all the senses in descriptions drew me in and wholly impressed me. Every angle of this story was realistic. This book resembled a collection of multiple biographies, set in present tense. The switching of perspective from one character to the next was smooth and enhanced the character's plausibility. Cold Hands, Warm Heart is not to be looked at as an emotional book only for PMSers, but as a realistic example of modern children who deal with fear and hope on a daily basis.

It has a tough start, but after about 50 pages you start getting teary eyed. The author must have done extensive research. I came across this book for a summer reading list, and although one of the saddest books, one of the best. If you are any age probably 12 or up for age appropriate junk, but just looking for a good story this book will be good for you. The plot and story seemed so moving I can't explain how much. I usually don't base books by author just the story, but in all... AMAZING STORY.

Cold Hands, Warm Heart is a touching book about a girl, Dani, who receives a new heart from Amanda, a recently deceased gymnast. This book touches the subjects of losing someone close, friendship (in a hospital) and lives being changed. Some parts of this book were inappropriate, and I found that swear words were not scarce, which took away from the book, for me. This book is probably best for middle school students.

This is a wonderful book. I always love novels that find a facile way to teach you about something and Jill does a wonderful job exploring a complex and compelling subject from many points of view(something I also like very much). I defy anyone to read this book and not find themselves pondering the issues raised for days on end. Jill reminds us all, as J Donne says, "we are involved in humanity."

The girl in In A Heartbeat is 14 and her name is Amilia. Similer to Amanda who is also 14. Crazy huh?
