"Waiting On" Wednesday - In a Heartbeat



"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

In a Heartbeat
By Loretta Ellsworth
Publication Date: February 2nd 2010 by Walker Books for Young Readers


Story of a heart transplant told in alternating chapters between two girls: the heart transplant recipient and the heart transplant donor. When Eagan dies during a figure skating competition, Amelia receives her heart, but when she experiences new personality traits, she questions whether she's received more than just a heart.

What a unique story line!  I am excited to see how the author carries this out.  I enjoy stories written from two perspectives, so I can't wait to read this one!

This one sounds so interesting. I like the idea of the alternating POV so we can see what each is thinking and feeling. I've got my hankies ready though -- I think this one might bring a few tears with it.
