Description

After his twin sister, Minnie, dies in an accident, Emmitt's world goes sideways. He’s lost his best friend and it feels like the family is falling apart without her. But Minnie was an organ donor and Emmitt soon receives an anonymous thank you letter from one of the transplant recipients. Inspiration strikes, and he decides to try and put his sister back together, in spirit. He’s going to track down each organ recipient and film them to show his parents the results of Minnie’s selfless act and help them move on. But when each recipient falls short of his expectations and the star of his film, the girl who received his sister’s heart, refuses to meet him, Emmitt has to turn to extreme measures to find her. What he doesn’t know is that his "heart sister" is hiding an agonizing secret, one that could push Emmitt to the breaking point.

Editorial Reviews

“The characters are refreshingly unique as is the storyline. Stewart takes an honest look at the paralysis of grief, the profound suffering of losing a loved one and the courage required to move on in the face of tragedy.”

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“An interesting look at grief, organ donation...I liked the messages the book shared – about death and loss, grieving in your own way, helping others, organ donations and family – whatever that looks like.”

— Book Time blog

“A tale that is alternately heartbreaking and mischievous, sometimes creepy, and ultimately triumphant.”

— Quill & Quire

“Raw, real, and riveting. In Heart Sister, Stewart masterfully takes us on Emmitt’s poignant search for what might be found when all seems lost. Heartfelt and heart-wrenching, it is a powerful story of hope.”

— Caroline Pignat, two-time Governor General’s Award–winning author of <i>Shooter</i>
