A Matter of Heart

(2015)
A novel by

 
 
"Will make your heart pound - anxiously, joyfully, triumphantly." - New York Times bestselling author Lauren Myracle

Readers will happily dive into this emotionally grounded, contemporary young adult novel about the sudden end of one girl's Olympic swimming dreams and the struggles she endures before realizing there are many things that express who we are.

Sixteen-year-old Abby Lipman is on track to win the state swim championships and qualify for the Olympic trials when a fainting incident at a swim meet leads to the diagnosis of a deadly heart condition. Now Abby is forced to discover who she is without the one thing that's defined her entire life.

"More than a sports novel, this book delves deep into issues of identity - how we identify ourselves separately from what we do well - and the importance of support systems while making life-altering decisions. Give this to fans of Catherine Gilbert Murdock's Dairy Queen series."

- School Library Journal

"This engaging and fast-paced read expertly paints the world of high-school sports and the single-minded focus and commitment that some high-school athletes can have." - Booklist

"This is a solid look at an elite athlete who gets benched. . . . An enjoyable read even for couch potatoes." - Kirkus Reviews
