Waiting On Wednesday: SECOND HAND HEART

I didn't do a WOW post last week so I believe it's high time to bring this tradition back! Here's my this week's pick ...

SECOND HAND HEART
by Catherine Ryan Hyde
[16 September 2010]
One girl: Vida is nineteen, very sick, and has spent her short life preparing for death. But a new chance brings its own story, because for Vida to live, someone had to die.
One man: Richard has just lost his beloved wife in a car accident. He hasn't even begun to address his grief, but feels compelled to meet the girl who inherited his wife's heart.
Someone else's heart: In hospital Vida sees Richard and immediately falls in love. Of course he dismisses her as a foolish child. But is she? Can two people be bound by a second hand heart?
Smells quite a bit like Jodi Picoult, don't you think? :)

I haven't read anything by this author yet, but I've heard great things about her so I'll be looking forward to this one!

Wow that does kind of sound like a Jodi Picoult book but it sounds really good. This is the first I have heard about this book so I am going to add it to my list of books to read. Great pick!

This does sound Picoult-like. You'll have to let us know how it when you get your hands on it ; )
