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.

Keep fighting

I liked the way the book shows that no matter what you should keep on fighting for what you believe is right, and that even if you think your fighting a loosing battle, keep fighting until it’s over. There white flag isn’t always the best option.

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.
