Cold Hands, Warm Heart

By Jill Wolfson

Two lives. Two hearts - but only one is working.

Fourteen-year-old Amanda is a competitive gymnast, sleek-muscled and in perfect health. Fifteen-year-old Dani was born with her heart on the wrong side of her body; she's been in and out of hospital all her life. The two girls don't know each other and never will. Yet their lives are about to collide. Amanda suffers a haematoma a blood clot during a gymnastics competition, and dies. The donation of her heart means renewed life for Dani and several other donor recipients. A fascinating and unputdownable story on an important and topical issue.
