What Im reading.....

....Since Twilight is over that is. I'm current reading Change-of-Heart by Jodi Picoult. She is one of my favorite authors and she writes about very controversial topics like mercy killings, school shootings, pregnant Amish teens....good wholesome stuff like that. I am slowly making my way though her books since it has only been within the last year or so that I discovered her. I don't know where she comes up with the stuff she writes (I guess that is why she is a best selling author and I'm not...among other things of course) This one has made me think a lot about the choices I would make in this situation....A man is convicted of murdering a woman's child and husband. The woman is pregnant at the time of the murder. He is sentenced to the death penalty. Fast forward 11 years and his sentence is about to be carried out but he wants to donate his heart to the little girl who is the sister of the girl that he killed (did you follow that) who has a heart condition and needs a transplant. So, as a you accept the heart of the man that killed your child and husband in order to save the child that you still have? I know that the chances of this situation ever really happening in the world are pretty non existent....but it is an interesting thought. I have yet to finish so I don't know what happens. I think I would do it though.....anything to save my child. I know there is always the chance that another heart would become available (although in this book time was running out) but how can you take the chance when you know you have what could be the fix right there? How about you?
