Born with a severe heart defect, she’s spent her whole life in and out of hospital, desperately needing a transplant.
Just days from death, her weak prayers are finally answered, and she receives a new heart; one that not only saves her life, but changes it forever.
Now fit and healthy, Ava is able to do things she only dreamed of, like get a job and some independence, fall in love, and finally live life to the fullest.
But her journey of self-discovery takes her to places she never expected. Along the way, Ava doesn’t just find the woman she was always meant to be, but also finds out more about the woman who no longer is. The one who gave her this new life because she lost hers.
Faced with a devastating dilemma, Ava must decide whether the heart that’s pumping inside her body now belongs to her, or is still beating for someone else…

5 Realizing what it means to live Stars!!
I have heard so many amazing things about Ms.Compton’s work and this book didn’t disappoint me in the least bit!! It was beautiful, sad, and very touching. It’s one of those books that will stick with you for life.Sometimes we are dealt terrible hands in this life but other times it can be so amazing that you forget about the bad for awhile. Nothing prepared me for the roller-coaster ride of emotions that i went through while reading this story but all the ones i felt were definitely worth it in the end.
The true meaning of living is really shown within the pages of this book and it goes to show you that even though life can be cruel it can be so incredible as well. This story was realistic and i loved how Ms.Compton’s words really struck me. They were very poetic indeed! I can’t wait to pick up more of her books soon!! Also, can we agree that the cover of this book is by far one of the most beautiful ones ever created? 🙂
Ava Malone was a character who had a life that wasn’t easy and full of struggles. After having her prayers answered just it the nick of time she learns to live again and goes on a journey she never expected to take. She was so sweet and i couldn’t help but instantly like her. She’s not the regular heroine and i liked that she had this realness to her to such a point that i felt as if i knew her. So many times i wanted to reach into the story and hug her because i felt helpless. Ava became stronger in my opinion as the story progressed.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that will stick with you always and leave you an emotional wreck once you finish it but in a great way. If you haven’t already One-Clicked this book, What are you waiting for? Go buy this poetically beautiful story today! You won’t regret it! 5 Stars all around!!
I’m sure others on the ground are staring at the scene we’re making, casting their judgments. But they don’t know us, not like we know us.
They don’t understand the hope in our eyes or the alchemy of our blood.
They don’t know our truth. Our hearts. Our lives.
Lives that we now have the freedom to live or waste.
To write stories that cause you to be anti-social and have you staying up late to finish them.
To show that life can be cruel and difficult, but it can also be incredibly beautiful and worthwhile.
And what A.J. really wants, is to write books that make you remember why you love to read.
A.J. knows better than most that we don’t always get what we want in life, but is going to give it a damn good try 😉
