Picoult’s story tackles a triple-whammy of hot-button issues—the death penalty, bioethics, and religious freedom. Shay, a condemned inmate—who, incidentally, exhibits a striking resemblance to the new Messiah—wishes to donate his heart to the sister of his murder victim after he is executed. A mesmerizing page-turner, CHANGE OF HEART examines the topic of religious dogma against the plight of a child’s struggle with life and death. In an inspired editorial choice for full-cast narration, Nicole Poole, Stafford Clark-Price, Jim Frangione, Danielle Ferland, and Jennifer Ikeda expertly portray the novel’s tangle of moral dilemmas from individual perspectives—and skillfully employ at least four other voices each. Ferland is especially memorable as the spirited and sarcastic Maggie, Shay’s ACLU attorney. A.W. 2009 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 08]
