He’s going to track down each organ recipient and film them to show his parents the results of Minnie’s selfless act and help them move on. But when each recipient falls short of his expectations and the star of his film, the girl who received his sister’s heart, refuses to meet him, Emmitt has to turn to extreme measures to find her. What he doesn’t know is that his “heart sister” is hiding an agonizing secret, one that could push Emmitt to the breaking point.

This book follows Emmit who has had his world fall apart with the death of his twin sister.  He feels like everything is falling apart but is it really?  When he receives a thank you letter from one of the donors he tries to see who has all his sister's organs what a journey Emmit goes on.

This book pulled at you and brought you into Emmit's world and what he is going through and what love can make you do when you want the people to be worthy of the gift of Minnie.  Of course what can happen with some gifts is they don't live up to the expectations that are set up.  Is the book was so good and moved you to tears at times and had me on the edge of my seat to see how it played out!  Definitely a fabulous developed characters and real issues that you couldn't imagine being in his place to come up with the story he created here!
