Malorie Blackman’s poignant and thought-provoking award-winner. Cameron is thirteen and his heart is failing. He needs a heart transplant – fast. Then a pioneering doctor approaches his family with a startling proposal. He can give Cameron a new heart: a heart from a pig. It’s a weird idea. But Cameron is fed up with sitting on life’s sidelines, unable to play sport or swim. He has to give it a try – even if it means becoming the world’s first pig-heart boy.
Soon Cameron is discovering how great it feels to live a normal life. But there are some people who don’t think it’s normal for a boy to have a pig’s heart. Will Cameron’s new life last long enough for him to discover what it’s really all about? Shocking, original and moving, this is the remarkable story of a boy learning who he really is, while going where no one has ever gone before.
Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany Pig-Heart Boy.
