Why read it?
Donate Life week runs from 25th July to the 1st August. Organ donation is an important issue to consider - so many people are on waiting lists for organs that could save their lives. Check out the link to learn more about organ donation - maybe chat to your friends and family about it?
Sophia Library has a number of books about organ donation - one title being Things We Know By Heart, by Jess Kirby.
"After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognisable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent's heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent's, then maybe she can have peace once and for all.
Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas - a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn't want to give in to it - especially since he has no idea how they're connected - but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she's falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she's lost…and all that remains at stake."
You can find this title in the Romance Fiction genre of the library - info here. It's also available as an eBook and an eAudiobook, via OverDrive.
