Cameron is thirteen, and all he wants is a ‘normal’ life – friends, swimming, school, family.
But his life is far from normal. Not every thirteen-year-old desperately needs a new heart because theirs doesn’t work properly.
Finally, one doctor offers hope.
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.
It’s risky. And it’s never been done before . . .
While Cameron comes to terms with the idea, he finds the world around him is much less accepting.
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 . . .?
