The book is called Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult. Jodi Picoult is probably one of the best authors of our time--in my opinion. Not only are the plots of her books fabulous and entertaining--they make you THINK. There are always a lot of ethical ideas to ponder as you read. You also truly get to know the characters as if they were real. So, if you're looking for a great summer read that will make you think and feel, check out this book!
Here are some other reading recommendations:
My Sisters Keeper by Jodi Picoult (This is now my 2nd all time favorite Jodi Picoult book. I believe there is a movie being made based on this book, so if you're like me and can't read a book after watching a movie, you'll want to read this book asap!)
Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult (yes another one!)
Julia's Chocolates by Cathy Lamb
East of Eden by John Steinbeck
Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner
