WHAT THE HEART REMEMBERS by Debra Ginsberg


When young Eden Harrison receives a heart transplant from an unknown donor, she becomes  haunted by dreams of people and places she doesn’t recognize, and she is convinced that her new heart carries the memories of its original owner. Eden leaves her old life and fiancee behind and moves to the city of San Diego.  
 
There, Eden becomes fast friends with Darcy, a young woman recently widowed when her wealthy, much older husband dies. Yet, the more Eden learns about Darcy, the more she realizes that all is not as it seems, and she begins to suspect foul play behind Darcy's husband and a young man Darcy had been having an affair with who has disappeared.


The compelling concept that memory can exist on a cellular level lies at the core of this newest thriller from Ginsberg. Some twists and turns, both of the story line and a dangerous California highway, Del Dios, gives the reader an exciting ride.

Every Day by David Leviathan

Delightful book about a 16 year old who wakes up every day in a different body, and on one of these days falls in love. Story centers on what this does to him, how it affects his actions, and how his actions affect the lives of those people whose bodies he inhabits... Sounds confusing, but it's not. I loved it.

And this book received great critical reviews. The library has two "book" copies and an e-book copy--definitely on my to be read list!
