Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

In this unforgettable novel, Quinn Sullivan falls for the recipient of her boyfriend’s donated heart. Printz Award winner John Corey Whaley calls it “not just a love story, but one with a ferocious pulse.”

After Quinn’s boyfriend, Trent, dies in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the fragments of her now-unrecognizable life. But whoever received Trent’s heart has chosen to remain silent. The essence of a person, Quinn has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent’s, then in a way, she will still have a piece of him.

Risking everything to get closure once and for all, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas, whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into something more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn’t want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they’re connected—but the time Quinn spends with Colton makes her feel alive again. No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, though, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost . . . and all that remains at stake.

Perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen, this unique and emotional story about an unexpected bond between two strangers will leave no heart untouched.

Book Review: Things We Know by Heart by Jessi Kirby

In secret, and against her own better judgement, she goes to Shelter Cove, just to take a peek at him. But of course, fate steps in and her best intentions to avoid contact are for naught: within an hour of first catching sight of him, Quinn is being driven to the emergency department by Colton. Kirby supports this with quotes from texts about the heart and about transplants, as well as poetry and prose with the heart as their theme. In places, the story drags a little. At the risk of using a pun, this is a heartwarming read. We use cookies to ensure the best user experience at FictionDB.

She keeps track of each day since Trent was killed as some kind of vigil, a testament to their love and to his memory. Quinn has heard back from and met four of the people, but the fifth one, the one who received his heart, is elusive. Quinn does some savvy researching and discovers that recipient 5 is a boy named Colton. She meets him in a convoluted way—they are in the same coffee shop and Quinn panics and flees, leaving her purse behind, which he returns, and then gets into a minor car accident that he witnesses. It is, of course, predictable that Quinn and Colton will fall for each other. Does this somehow affect how Colton feels toward her?
