First of all, the publisher provided this book so that I could review it. Since I am a transplant recipient myself, I had no choice but to read this (meaning I would have read it even if I had not been given the book to review), even though it is a YA book and I am in my, shall we say, 'mid-life' – if life ends at 60-something!. It starts off G-R-E-A-T. This author obviously remembers what it was like to be a teenage boy. This is all before the first chapter. As the book progressed and I flew through it I had to remind myself 1) that teenagers sometimes say stupid things (ie; it wasn't the author writing poorly!), 2) that the story is fictional (ie; my factual transplant experience is not the same as in the book), and 3) that the three times of tears filling my eyes may be due to the very personal note this has taken for me, despite the different circumstances and organ. It is no wonder that this was a finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award! I definitely recommend this book. It is not 'preachy' or pushy. It is simply a great work of fiction that happens to include organ donation, another segment of real life that rarely gets talked about. I love the fact that it has been included, and it comes across fairly naturally, which can be difficult to do. The story captures your attention and the journey you walk with the main character is tough and well worth it.

M. Scott Carter's clear writing voice and empowering narrative make this book a super entertaining read. The twist in the end I'd compare to the shocking climax of "Sixth Sense," but I can't tell you what it is or I'd ruin a really good book for you.
