Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Junior Quinn Sullivan finds it hard to forget the night that her life changed in an instant when her boyfriend, Trent, was killed in a car accident. Healthy and only 17, his organs were donated to five different people. After 282 days and several written letters, Quinn meets the recipients of Trent's organs—all but one of them. Who received Trent's heart and why didn't that person come forward? Quinn needs to know and begins combing websites looking for clues. She eventually finds the receiver, Colton Thomas, and sets out to meet him in person. The love story that follows will hook readers—especially those who enjoyed John Green's The Fault in Our Stars (Dutton, 2012). The author has created believable and likable characters who will remind readers to seize the moment and live each day to the fullest. Each chapter is introduced by a fact, quote, or statistic about the heart. The writing is easy to follow yet rhythmic and honest. The one romantic scene is dealt with delicately; sex happens off the page. Kirby brings attention to the importance of organ donation without sounding preachy. VERDICT This memorable romance will ring true with teens, and librarians won't be able to keep it on the shelf.—Karen Alexander, Lake Fenton High School, Linden, MI

Review

“Above all else, Things We Know By Heart explores the possibility of finding human connection through tragic loss. Couple that with Kirby’s gift for detail and writing relatable characters and you get a not just a love story, but one with a ferocious pulse.” (John Corey Whaley, Printz Award-winning author of Where Things Come Back)

“This is hands down Jessi Kirby’s best book to date. It’s stunning and breathtaking, at turns heartbreaking and healing.” (Sarah Ockler, author of Twenty Boy Summer)

“The love story will hook readers—especially those who enjoyed John Green’s The Fault in our Stars. This memorable romance will ring true with teens.” (School Library Journal)

“Well-rounded characters and the romantic tension of unrevealed secrets.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Kirby’s story is, at its core, a sweet, budding romance, set against the backdrop of family. [A] story of letting go and moving forward.” (Publishers Weekly)

“[A] sweet romance that grows organically.” (Unshelved.com)

“Kirby’s writing is lush and emotional…[A] satisfying romance. Like Ockler’s similarly themed and similarly enjoyable Twenty Boy Summer, this brings all the poignancy and sentiment that a genre fan could wish.” (BCCB)

“Kirby weaves a sweet romance in the same spirit as Susanne Colasanti and Lauren Barnholdt.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))
