Instructions for a Second-hand Heart by Tamsyn Murray

Into the Wild

Read Instructions for a Second-hand Heart Online Free - Jonny knows better than anyone that life is full of cruel ironies. He's spent every day in a hospital hooked up to machines to keep his heart ticking. Then when a donor match is found for Jonny's heart, that turns out to be the cruellest irony of all. Because for Jonny's life to finally start, someone else's had to end.

That someone turns out to be Neve's twin brother, Leo. When Leo was alive, all Neve wanted was for him (and all his glorious, overshadowing perfection) to leave. Now that Leo's actually gone forever, Neve has no idea how to move forward. Then Jonny walks into her life looking for answers, her brother's heart beating in his chest, and everything starts to change.

Together, Neve and Jonny will have to face the future, no matter how frightening it is, while also learning to heal their hearts, no matter how much it hurts.

If The Fault in Our Stars had a cousin, it would probably be this book. Jonny is a robot. Well not quite, but he does have a mechanical heart. For him to live a long and happy life, he needs a new, human one. This is where Neve comes into play. Her brother just died, and his organs were donated to...

Note to self. Don't judge a book by its cover or title! I read this book as part of a book challenge because the author is a member of my book club and to be honest I didn't read the blurb and assumed it was a chick lit/romance which really isn't my thing! Within the first chapter I realised my mi...

I’m not sure what to think about Instructions for a Secondhand Heart. I enjoyed the concept, but not the characterization. I also found certain aspects of the book to be kind of creepy, and I didn’t enjoy the romance. This book had so much potential, but I ended up pretty disappointed. This book h...

„Drugie bicie serca” to ważna, poruszająca lektura, która otwiera oczy, ale również niesie pocieszenie. Niezwykły związek dwojga nastolatków, nieuleczalna choroba, przyjaźń, śmierć, której można uciec lub ulec, oraz nowa szansa na życie – nie brzmi to wcale jak fabuła powieści dla młodzieży. Więc...
