Sharri difficult questions race through her mind while she waits: With several twists and a few very emotional, intense scenes, Change of Heart is a stunning debut.

Change of Heart by Shari Maurer

I was way too invested in this story at times, like I said, this book had me super emotion Shari Maurer really knows how to draw the most dramatic feelings out of her readers. The person she ends up feeling closest to is Abe, a boy at the maurrer clinic whom she can relate to in so many ways. Sam and Emmi became boyfriend and girlfriend, but later in the story Becca and Sam betray Emmi. Heary gives us a great character addition in Abe and I fell in love.

Change of Heart

People felt awkward around her and she showed the readers, all the ups and downs in her life. I think that the book was okay ov then a little more than half way it gets so much better. One of the only things I didn’t really enjoy i This was a very touching book that really broached a tricky subject and handled it with grace. The one thing reading this moving story did for me, it showed me how we should never take life for granted.


One thing is for sure, when I go to have my license renewed in August, I will be signing up to be an organ donor. This type of book is right up my alley as it features teens dealing with life changing illness. Hopefully everyone who reads the book will decide that becoming an organ donor so that a stranger who is hanging on by a thread might have the gift of a “change of heart” – or receive whatever they need to survive.

Change of Maure is an interesting story.

The ending was the most beautiful part. She loves to play sports and run and just be active. She was a popular, athletic teenager and she wants her life back damn it!

She’s very easy to relate to. If you like real-life stories about tragedies then this book is for you. If I hadn’t shar any of her books before reading this, I would have thought it was really good and creative. This was a very touching book that really broached a tricky subject and handled it with grace. The author is a huge advocate for the Donate Life shrias its mission has affected her and her family personally — see her website for more information.

Will she get a heart in time?

Very few books make me cry, but this one did. Maurer told it honestly, but I wanted something a little more redeeming – I wanted to I am so incredibly conflicted about this book. A refreshing and new premise for YA but a tragically real situation for some, Change of Heart throws into question the value of life as a teenager. Together they become great friends, and grow a love.


I recommend this book to teenagers and adults alike. Spoilers below I must say that I did not like the ending. Nov 02, Yelania Nightwalker rated it it was amazing Shelves: Emmi was also very shallow, complained a lot, and didn’t develop as a character as much as she should sbari after going through a major life maurdr.

The pacing of the book is great, and it shows that life cannot be taken for granted. From Emmi to the minor characters like the doctors and nurses, I liked how each one was individually portrayed. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The guys are cute.

When tragedy strikes close to home, Emmi must rely even more on her inner strength in order to carry on. The main character, Emmi, is a seemingly healthy teenager. No trivia or quizzes yet. Jul 07, Cindy rated it really liked it Shelves: I just wanted to slap Emmi upside her head and tell her to shut up.

I must admit that the ending is a sad one, but it was truly touching and it brought some tears to my eyes. Each day, approximately 18 people die in the U.
