Change of Heart by Shari Maurer Content Rating and Review | The Literate Mother

Fo I did not care for the way Emmi treated her mother, that aspect of her character showed very well how most teenagers act irrationally. The main character Emmi befriends Abe, a sixteen year old who also had a heart transplant. Through Abe, Emmi learns how to cope with her heart transplant.

It was also through him that Emmi learns what true friendship and love is. Emmi has two other close friends, Becca and Sam.

Change of Heart

Sam and Emmi became boyfriend and girlfriend, but later in the story Becca and Sam betray Emmi. The events that led to the betrayal are very real and believable. The author did a good job showing how human Emmi is and how she later forgave Becca and Sam.


The story kept me captivated to the very end. The one thing reading this moving story did for me, it showed me how we should never take life for granted. I also learned the importance of organ donations.

Donating an organ may save as many as eight lives. I never gave a second thought to the idea of being an organ donor, but after reading Change of Heart I decided to become one.
