Pig Heart Boy
Not only does Cameron have to cope with being the first human to receive a pig's heart in what may or may not be a life-saving operation, he and his family also have to deal with the media attention and reactions of those around them. Malorie Blackman writes with enormous warmth and emotion about a difficult and moving subject.
