Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Chelsea James and Katie O'Roark met at Jenny House and spent a wonderful summer together.

Now Chelsea and her mother are staying with Katie as Chelsea awaits news concerning a heart transplant. While waiting for a compatible donor, Chelsea meets Jillian, a girl who's funny and kind. Jillian is also waiting. She needs a heart-lung transplant. The two girls become fast friends. When Chelsea meets Jillian's brother, he awakens feelings in Chelsea she's never known before. However, as her medical situation grows desperate, Chelsea finds herself in a contest for her life against her very best friend.

Is it fair that there's only a chance for one of them to survive?

More About the Author

I was born in Philadelphia PA, grew up (mostly) in Hialeah FL, graduated from the University of South Florida, Tampa FL (go Bulls!) and currently live in Chattanooga TN---I'm an American citizen by birth, and Southern by the grace of God.

I have a brother, three years younger, married, and mathematically gifted. I am totally without math skills.

The books I write, the topics and subject matter, grew out of my firstborn son's diagnosis of diabetes at age 3.
Infinite reward that comes to me from my work.... when a grown reader lets me know that reading my books inspired her to seek a profession that helps others. I have wonderful letters saying, "Today I graduated from nursing/medical school."

Now that's a gift of joy!

Another addition to the story of friends Lacey, Chelsea, Amanda, Jillian and Katie, its a must-read. Chelsea is on the beeper for a heart transplant, and staying with Katie's family. Katie's success with a heart transplant gives Chelsea hope, but after living with a heart disease her entire life, Chelsea is getting sicker each day. At a class for hopeful tranplant receipiants, Chelsea meets Jillian, a sassy, up-beat red-head with a Texan twang and a rich father. Jillian is not only in need of a heart, but a 'pair of lungs.' Jillian and Chelsea can relate, and become instant friends. But one night both girls' beepers go... but there's only one heart, and two lungs. Do the doctors save three people, or one?

Chelsea James has just moved onto a beeper for a heart transplant and is staying with her friend from the summer, Katie O'Roark. Chelsea is in a support group, and there she meets Jillian, who is awaiting a heart-lung transplant. Jillian and Chelsea become the best of friends. When they are both beeped for the same heart, the hospital must choose only one of them. Who will it be?

This book by Lurlene McDaniel is AWESOME. It was the first one of all her books that I have read. I saw it at a bookstore and at first hated it, but then I really got into it. This book is for those who have a heart and are willing to give this book a try, otherwise don't even touch the book. I have since read many others by Lurlene McDaniel, and while they have the basic story-line, they really are rather different. Read this and then more in the series

I have read it a million times and you should too!! This book shows how friendship really helps you get through things that you have to face. Jillian was the funniest, happiest person I have ever read about. I recomend this book to anyone who enjoys a page-turner, tear-jerker kind of book.

By reading some of the other reviews for this book, I realize that many of them are negative. They imediatly turn you off from the book. I sopose there are some people who do not like them, but please read the book for yourself and then decide. Do not let the negative reviews influence you. The books are inspiring, touching, and simply amazing.
This praticular book is about two friends fighting for their lives because of failing hearts. When both are called into the hospital, only one will be choosen to recieve the heart that is being donated. Booth friends want the heart to be given to eachother, but it will only be given to one, and the other will die.
I have read almost all her other books, and I have never gotten bored, or thought the plot was the same, or the book was predictable. Please try her books before you decide you don't like them, and don't let negative reviews influence you're desision. You'll find her books are truly amazing.

I really liked this book because it shows that in life not everthing can go your way. This story can happen in real life. It's the best story I have read because it's about two friends that need the same heart. I thought the book was sad, but these things happen in real life. That's what life is about.

A Kid's Review on December 16, 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This Book is called She Died Too Young. It was written by Lurlene McDaniel. This girl named Chelsea James needs a heart transplant. She goes to stay with her friend Katie's house waiting for the news for the donor. Chelsea and Katie met at a place called Jenny House and they spent a wonderful sommer together. Chelsea goes to a place where they talk about the way they feel. Chelsea made a new friend named Jillian. She was really nice. Jillian invited her to her house. She and Katie was picked up in a limo to go to her house and they thought that was pretty cool. This is a fantastic book and it made me think that I need to be thankful for what I have because I could end up like her someday. I think that the theme is most represented in this book because you learn a lesson a bout life when you put yourself in Chelsea's shoes and you find out that you may not have a chance to survive. You need to know that life isn't always fair. If you like Relistic Fiction books than I recommend this book for you to read. I gave this book five stars because this book will touch your heart in certain ways.
