Jenna was in desperate need for a heart transplant when a donor heart finally became available. After Jenna’s transplant she feels that she needs to find out more about her donor and against others advice decides to meet with the family of the donor.
Jenna finds that the heart came from a girl named Callie and the more she finds out about Callie the more questions Jenna finds herself with. Jenna begins to have visions, dreams and feelings that she believes belong to Callie and becomes sure that Callie was actually murdered and Jenna needs to find out just what happened to her.
The Gift was an intense psychological thriller that will leave the reader guessing until the very end. It tackles a new idea in having a transplant victim feel connected to their donor. There are actual cases of people feeling that connection to their donors in real life and is known as cellular memory so it was interesting to follow Jenna as she begins to look into her donor and then in her quest for the truth.
Overall, The Gift was filled with likable characters and a plot with plenty of twists and turns the story certainly kept the pages turning to find out just what would happen. Would definitely recommend this one to the fans of a good psychological thriller.
