Right from the very first scene when Tyler's sister dies, this book tugged at my heart strings. I could feel the pain and heartache of Tyler and his family, the frustration and worry of Dani and hers. I learned a lot about what life might be like waiting for a transplant, and the pain and joy of connecting with a loved one who is already dead. The book is not about a interpersonal relationship between Dani and Tyler, but rather about how two opposite experiences -- one that inflicts long-lasting heartache and loss to one family and another that provides renewed hope, energy, and possibilities to another -- are really one story. Life and death are irrevocably connected on many different levels, and making connections between those that are experiencing death and those that are experiencing new life is important to both. (Contains 8 f-words, plus 10 other swear words)
