This Heart of mine completely took over my own heart. This is tge story of 17yr old Leah Mackenzie who was living her life with an artificial heart inside of a bookbag.

Matt refused to believe his twin brother had killed himself. He was having nightmares that told him helis brother had been murdered. And when Leah track him down and told him about her dreams he knew he was right all along. After all two people cannot have the same dream.
Leah and Matt became very close during the time spent together looking for the killer. They fell for one another. Their relationship was cute and funny but could it last? Would Leah’s body fully accept a strange heart? Would they find the killer?
This book made me feel all kinds of emotions. I cry, laughed, got angry etc. It was a touchy subject for me because like Matt i have lost people i love. I also found out that this book was created based on a similar experience as Leah did with her husband. That made this book so much more special to me.
