He is This type of book is right up my alley as it features teens dealing with life changing illness. The book started out okay, but as it went on, the writing got worse and hearg plot became unbearable.

Change of Heart

Emmi mentions her small boobs a couple times. This was a very touching book that really broached a tricky subject and handled it with grace. But this book was like every other health issue book, but not done as well.

If I hadn’t read any of her books before reading this, I would have thought it was really good and creative. My one complaint would be that there are a few events that take place, that while understandable, are so sudden that they took me by surprise.

Spoilers below I must say that I did not like the ending. The story felt well researched and I could imagine the pain and frustration the characters dealt with daily. I guess I can’t really blame her though.

Very few books make me cry, but this one did.

One thing is for sure, when I go to have my license renewed in August, I will be signing up to be an organ donor. And that is what I liked about this book. Why I Read this Book: One of the only things I didn’t really enjoy i This was a very touching book that really broached a tricky subject and handled it with grace.

Emmi shsri also very shallow, complained a lot, and didn’t develop as a character as much as she should have after going through a major life crisis. This book really hearr a lot of emotional cords for me, but it was never maueer heavy that it made me feel depressed, which is quite a feat with this subject matter.


I knew Change of Heart would be one of those books.

I was way too invested in this story at times, like I said, this book had me super emotion Shari Maurer really knows how to draw the most syari feelings out of her readers.

I also liked how Shari incorporated the vast arrange of emotions that not only Emmi felt and deals with, but her family and friends.

Od fold with meaning, Change of Heart also stresses the important of organ donation and making those wishes clear in advance.

Together they become great friends, and grow a love. Anger, frustration, hope, dread, worry, hopelessness, “why me” and faith that things will work out.

Shari Maurer really knows how to draw the most dramatic feelings out of her readers. As the reader, I was with Emmi through heart-break and loneliness.

Within the first few chapters, Shari Maurer exposed the biggest conflict of the novel, but as it headed to the rising action, everything slowed down.

My conservative nature must admit that the language and sexual content in this book were very distracting from the message and emotion I was feeling.

This story is powerful in the awareness it gives the reader for organ donations, and at the same time reads like a YA contemporary. Her friends and boyfriend were, well supportive but they actions sometimes were questionable.

I just wanted to slap Emmi upside her head and tell her to shut up. I never gave a second thought to the idea of being an organ donor, but after reading Change of Heart I decided to become one. It was really hard to finish because she was all alone. On the one hand, I wholeheartedly agree with Emmi that just because you are young and sick, you don’t have to put on this happy, brave face for the world. The ending was the most beautiful part.
