Summary

I am drowning in this roaring silence. I am drowning. I'm going to die... Cameron is 13 and desperately in need of a heart transplant when a pioneering doctor approaches his family with a startling proposal. He can give Cameron a new heart - but not one from a human, one from a pig. It's never been done before. It's experimental, risky and very controversial. But Cameron is fed up with just sitting on the side of life, always watching and never doing. He has to try - to become the world's first pig-heart boy.

Interesting storyline

I liked the book but I don't think it us suitable for year 5 or under due to the strong themes. Year 6 would like it. it is certainly an emotive subject, well written.

Lovely

A really lovely book, although a little sad and tense in places. My 9 year old daughter was reading it as a class book. She asked if we could get it on audible. We both listened and thought it was really good.

Just like we read at school

It brought back memories of Mr Davidson making us read this in our English lessons in year 7 it really brought a test to my eye

Brilliant

This is a well written book covering a very controversial subject. I read it through our teaching of 11 year olds and would highly recommend it.
