This fast paced, gripping YA, is told by 2 teens—Eagan and Amelia. 16-year-old Eagan a superstar figure skater has just tragically hit her head in as she skated and died. 14-year-old Amelia has been waiting for a heart transplant and now is finally headed to the hospital to receive a heart. (Yes, you guess it—Amelia’s) Eagan is trapped in limbo and relives some painful memories before she can move on to the hereafter. Meanwhile Amelia, is taking on some of Eagan’s characteristic traits—a love of purple, dreams of ice skating, and a quest to find out who her donor was. Ellsworth weaves an interlocking story of grief, hope and closure. Tee Cotter, Port Chester
