Cameron is thirteen and in urgent need of a heart transplant when a pioneering doctor approaches his family with a startling proposal. He can give Cameron a new heart: a heart from a pig. Cameron is fed up with sitting on life’s sidelines, unable to play sport or swim. He has to try – even if it means becoming the world’s first pig-heart boy. Shocking, original and moving, this is the remarkable story of a boy learning who he really is, while going where no one has ever gone before.
