SHE DIED TOO YOUNG
New York : Bantam, 1994.
Chelsea James is awaiting the news of a donor. Her poor old heart
is just plain old tired and needs replacing. She and her mother have moved
in with Katie and her parents. They have also been through the same
experience. Chelsea is required to attend group-counseling sessions
to help prepare her mentally as she waits for the "beep." She finds
herself among the many people who are in need of one or more organs.
During one of her sessions, she meets Jillian.
Jillian is sixteen and needs
a heart and two lungs. She and Chelsea soon become best friends and
the waiting process begins. Tragedy strikes and Chelsea takes a turn
for the worst. When a possible donor becomes available, Jillian receives
her beep. Who will receive the organs that both girls so desperately
need? Will the organs be used to save the one life that is most in
need, or will they be used to save several lives, including Chelsea's?
How will either girl handle the guilt of sacrificing one life for the other?
