It was about a boy who has heart problems and needs to have a heart transplant. No person would give away their heart so the doctors suggested to use a pig's heart. The boy's parents do not want that to happen and let their child have a pig's heart and they fuss about it really much. The boy dos have the pig's heart at the end and it has a really good ending.

This book is really good and is a bit like a take on Romeo and Juliet (except they don't both die at the end - no, I'm not telling you who or even if they do...). I read this book in a day - you get really hooked into it........An enjoyable read about a boy who needs a heart transplant. The question of whether to go for a transplant or not would be a pretty easy one to answer for me as it would be a question of either live or die. However add to the dilemma the fact that the organ being offered is that of a pig and not a human, and then I start to wonder what I’d do. My indecision would not be based on whether it was unkind to the animal but whether a pigs heart would be rejected by more body or not. This book opened my eyes to the fact that people on the outside of the situation looking in will all have opinions on this and they won’t necessary share my own. An interesting topic. I love that Cam doesn't understand any of the jargon because I didn't. You see it all the time in books and movies about illness where the main character knows everything about their illness, and that's not always the case. I just knew my cancer diagnosis, ask me anything else, and I was lost. Dr Byron – He’s the guy who’s come up with the idea to transplant pig hearts into humans and I must say I think he’s a bit shady. I just never trust him, even though he’s helping others a part of me feels it’s purely for his own gain. I don’t think that’s a bad thing though, I don’t think anyone ever entirely trusts someone like Dr Byron,

But surely everyone will understand that it's better to have a pig's heart that works than a human heart that doesn't - won't they . . .? Cameron could - if he and his parents agree - take part in a radical and controversial procedure involving the transplant of a pig's heart into his human body. But all that changes when her dad is accused of stealing a million pounds from the bank where he works.Cameron Kelsey is 13 years old. He is not well and needs a new heart. Doctors want to give him a pig's heart. Cameron cannot decide if he wants the pig's heart, and some groups are very angry about doctors using animals in this way. We’re Going to Find the Monster (2021). Join two intrepid adventurers, Charlie and Eddie, as their imaginations transform their house into a wild wonderland - and their big brother becomes a mighty monster. Cameron desperately needs a new heart when he is offered the opportunity to take part in a radical and controversial experiment involving the transplant of a pig's heart.
