Seventeen-year-old Elle Collins spent most her life waiting for someone else to die…
When a heart donor is found, Elle awakes from surgery gifted with more than just a new heart—clairaudient messages and spiritual apparitions haunt her until she is convinced that she must be insane. Either that, or her donor is sending a message.
Desperate for answers the medical community can’t provide, Elle’s divination leads her to the family of her donor—a young girl named, Cas. With the help of her best friend, Rob—the guy who’s a testament that her new heart is capable of love, Elle must make sense of the clues Cas is sending. As pieces of Cas’s life and death emerge, Elle will discover that she and Cas share more than just a heart.

This is a gripping novel.
It is emotional at the beginning when Elle is sick. But after she gets her heart transplant the story takes an eerie turn, which was amazing.
The story of Elle’s new powers is woven together perfectly with the ordinary problems that most teenagers face, such as first love. This makes the story relateable, even though there are paranormal aspects.
The twists were so thrilling, I couldn’t put the book down. I ended up becoming suspicious of everyone, though there weren’t as many “bad guys” as I suspected. The conclusions were somewhat logical, but I enjoyed the mystery of it all.
This is a great debut novel. I look forward to seeing what Danielle R. Mani comes out with next.
