We hardly know him while he’s living. He spends most of the book between life and death, waiting for his grief-wrenched parents to decide whether to allow his strong and perfect organs to save the lives of other people. We also meet on personal and professional levels everyone connected with such decisions. I checked this book out from the library and ended up buying my own copy … and making sure I checked the “organ donor” box on my driver’s license. 9. 10.
