‘Quirky, clever and unputdownable’ Katie Fforde 

‘A beautiful book’ – Prima magazine 

‘I cried like a motherf***er’ Shelley Harris 
Ailsa Rae is learning how to live. 
She’s only a few months past the heart transplant that – just in time – saved her life. Life should be a joyful adventure. But… 

Her relationship with her mother is at breaking point. 

She knows she needs to find her father. 

She’s missed so much that her friends have left her behind. 

She’s felt so helpless for so long that she’s let polls on her blog make her decisions for her. And now she barely knows where to start on her own. 

And then there’s Lennox. Her best friend and one time lover. He was sick too. He didn’t make it. And now she’s supposed to face all of this without him. 

But her new heart is a bold heart.  

She just needs to learn to listen to it . . .
