Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

Things We Know by HeartThings We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After 400 days of grief, Quinn writes the recipients of her boyfriend’s organs. All the transplant patients write back and gather to meet her to help her try to move forward with her life, with the exception of the person who received her boyfriend’s heart.

Quinn is supposed to respect that person’s wishes in regards to not meeting, but instead she seeks him out, without disclosing who she really is. After that, everything spirals, and the two get caught up in a huge web of lies.

This may be closer to a 3.5 for me, but I always round up. It probably deserves the extra 0.5 stars anyway, as it struck an emotional chord, even though I had concerns about the relevancy of a relationship created on a foundation of lies. Still, grief and hardship impact the ways in which people react, and the choices that people make, and there was room for forgiveness with this one.
