Summary

A boy must make a radical medical decision.

Cameron is thirteen and desperately in need of a heart transplant when a pioneering doctor approaches his family with a startling proposal. He can give Cameron a new heart - but not one from a human. From a pig.

It's never been done before. It's experimental, risky and very controversial. But Cameron is fed up with just sitting on the side of life, always watching and never doing. He has to try - to become the world's first pig-heart boy...

Book banded for guided reading by the Institute of Education - novel / topical and ethical issues for discussion
