Booklist Reviews 2015 July #1

The best-case scenario for adolescent organ-transplant patients is a smooth transition back to teen life. Official hospital charts chronicle the medical condition of heart-recipient Stella Cross but don't come close to telling the whole story. Returning to her Seattle prep school and friends is a delicate process—her life as a swimmer will never resurface—but Stella tries to settle into her new normal. It's rocky going, though, as she suffers hallucinations, nightmares, intense pain (at precisely 5:08 p.m. daily), and suffers literal aches for a new kid in class, Levi Zinn, whose very presence seems to trigger hypersensitivity in Stella. With the help from Henry, a longtime friend turning boyfriend, Stella investigates Levi's story, and the plot thickens. Ultimately, great lengths are required to exorcise the grisly connection between Stella and Levi. Baker's narrative vividly engages readers in the deeper world of transplants, the full experience of receiving a part of another being, and, through Stella, exposes heightened sensibilities far beyond the vital physical transition.

Stella's recent heart transplant saved her life--so why has she been plagued by bizarre side effects since her surgery? The only person who eases her anxieties is Levi, a mysterious new boy at her Seattle prep school. But why does he want to get so close to Stella? A predictable plot nevertheless offers some genuine heart-pounding moments in this supernatural thriller.
