The characters are likable.

Abe is a great addition. But she also handles with a strength that I only hope I would have in the same situation. And that is what I liked shri this book.

The only part in the book I didn’t like was the ending. Have you ever wondered about organ donation? Maurer told it honestly, but I wanted something a little more redeeming murer I wanted to like Emmi despite her whining and boy-craziness, and I wanted her to learn something that stuck.

This story did more than jus a good read but to bring awareness to a big issue. The plot of this novel was a little slow towards the middle because it seemed to drag on and repeat it Change Of Heart is a very different kind of novel, but yet the same as something anyone would read about in today’s chhange. I may act like a pain in the butt sometimes, but I actually like you. Amurer fact some readers may have difficulty relating to Emmi — a girl who is suffering from congestive heart failure and is awaiting a heart transplant.

Overall, I really liked this novel.
