SUMMARY A Heart Like Ringo Starr
Painted Often verse is used to put the reader in a happy playful mood but Faith s mood is not happy but defensive in as playful a manner as a rebelious teenager can be Faith was born with a heart defect and is in need f a heart transplant but doesn t know how much time she has nor does she know when Rufus or if she will ever receive a transplant Though she is livingn borrowed time the reader does not do what Faith does not want you to do feel sorry for her She does not want your pity but the author wants you to know her for who she is a young woman with desires and ambitions like anyone else The clever method f using verse to deflect the irritating and monotonous well wishing that typically come her way enable you to get to know her immediately in intimate fashion and gain enough empathy to be n her sideThis is an engaging read that teens from 10th to 12th grade can relate to and possibly be inspired to put their You Are a Miserable Excuse for a Hero!: Book One in the Just Make a Choice!

Someone dies Unless there is a match Staying alive will mean a heart transplant Faith copes with wit and nerve She’s.
