Narrator Katherine Littrell wrests all the humor, angst, and anguish from this first-person account of Australian teen Marlowe Jensen's attempts to adjust to normal life after her heart transplant. Littrell captures Marlowe's many moods with an engaging performance that moves with the text from intensely introspective to wryly humorous and fiercely poignant. She expertly depicts Marlowe's struggle to embrace life after staring death in the face for so many years. From feelings of guilt for taking the heart of a boy who died to making her own decisions against the iron will of her passionately vegan mum, along with first friendships and first love with--gasp!--a butcher's son, Littrell's well-paced, well-modulated tones meld this coming-of-age story into a satisfying listening experience.
