Adam is a teenage boy who lives with his mum and younger sister. His dad has left them although lives close by. His sister no longer speaks and his mum works two jobs. Adam feels the weight of the world upon his shoulders. Then his grandfather dies and in doing so he donates a very precious gift - his heart. William is the recipient of Adam's grandfather's heart. He has no family and feels rootless and alone. In fact, he feels no particular reason to live. And then he meets Adam's family. William has received much, but it appears that he has much to offer Adam and his family too.

I give it - 4/5
My review - Irfan has written a fantastic book! It is small but it packs a punch. I flew through this book and give it me so many emotions.
I also love the design of the book as it is to do with graffiti and the proof of the book I got, you got to graffiti the back which was so cool. This book is mainly about family, and how things can bring you together and I just loved this book a lot. If you haven't picked this book up yet then I really suggest you do. It is fantastic diverse read that is definitely one of my favourites of the year.
In this book we meet Adam whose 15, quiet and draws a lot. And William, the guy who received Adam's grandfathers heart when he died.
William wants to connect with Adams family after he got their grandfathers heart which I thought was sweet. It was a wonderful message of family and that your family is not always your blood and I thought that was really sweet and adorable.
I love Adams creations and so wish I could see his drawings! He is very creative and I love that we got to see what he felt about the world around him.
A story of finding your heart, your family and dealing with grief, hate and broken hearts.
A must read for the whole family. It will give you an insight to Adams family and what they deal with and I think it's a very heartfelt, important read.
