Read full description of the books:



Linda Oatman High's approach to introducing the reader to the heroine Faith Hope Stevenson is unconventional to say the least. We meet her in first person verse. Not in silly jovial rhyme, but in a somewhat annoyed and sarcstic tone as she is getting her toe nails painted. Often verse is used to put the reader in a "happy" "playful" mood, but Faith's mood is not happy, but more defensive in as playful a manner as a rebelious teenager can be. Faith was born with a heart defect and is in need of a heart transplant but doesn't know how much time she has, nor does she know when or if she will ever receive a transplant. Though she is living on borrowed time the reader does not do what Faith does not want you to do, feel sorry for her. She does not want your pity but the author wants you to know her for who she is, a young woman with desires and ambitions like anyone else. The clever method of using verse to deflect the irritating and monotonous well wishing that typically come her way enable you to get to know her immediately in intimate fashion and gain enough empathy to be on her side.

This is an engaging read that teens from 10th to 12th grade can relate to and possibly be inspired to put their own lives in verse, which makes for a good creative lesson. It can also be used to put them in touch with their feelings about their own mortality. It could also serve as a history lesson and teach them who Ringo Starr is. I would recommend this book for a high school English course seeking to put reality fiction in the hands of YA readers.
