Amanda, a fourteen-year-old gymnast, is the picture of perfection. Her competition’s only hope for a medal is if she trips up on the uneven bars. But she’s always perfect.
Amanda’s slip becomes Dani’s resurrection.
This is one of the best books I’ve read in quite some time. Revolving between Dani’s first person perspective and a third person perspective of Amanda’s family after the organ donation, Wolfson keeps a story that could have gone terribly sappy on the straight and narrow by delivering a well-balanced story that tugs at your heart strings while coaxing a laugh every so often. What happens to a family after it donates a loved one’s organs? How does the organ recipient send her gratitude to the donating family? Wolfson looks at all aspects of the transplant scenario.
