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.

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 *
