Summary, etc.:
After her best friend, Elowyn, is in a fatal car accident, Kassey finds out that Elowyn registered to be a donor while receiving her new driver's license. Her death brings new life to Arabeth, who has been on the heart-transplant list for years. As Kassey attempts to come to terms with her grief, Arabeth begins to realize that Elowyn may not be completely gone. She finds herself suddenly sharing the same intense passions as the deceased, right down to the same boyfriend and best friend --the concept of cellular memory, where organ recipients retain knowledge, skills, or feelings of the organ's original owner. This emotionally charged novel explores complex bonds within families and between friends.
