From the author of You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone comes a stunning contemporary novel that examines the complicated aftermath of a kidney transplant between best friends.

Aspiring choreographer Sophie Orenstein would do anything for Peter Rosenthal-Porter, who’s been on the kidney transplant list as long as she’s known him. Peter, a gifted pianist, is everything to Sophie: best friend, musical collaborator, secret crush. When she learns she’s a match, donating a kidney is an easy, obvious choice. She can’t help wondering if after the transplant, he’ll love her back the way she’s always wanted.

But Peter’s life post-transplant isn’t what either of them expected. Though he once had feelings for Sophie too, he’s now drawn to Chase, the guitarist in a band that happens to be looking for a keyboardist. And while neglected parts of Sophie’s world are calling to her—dance opportunities, new friends, a sister and niece she barely knows—she longs for a now-distant Peter more than ever, growing increasingly bitter he doesn’t seem to feel the same connection.

Peter fears he’ll forever be indebted to her. Sophie isn’t sure who she is without him. Then one blurry, heartbreaking night twists their relationship into something neither of them recognizes, leading them to question their past, their future, and whether their friendship is even worth fighting for.
So, I would tell you why I am looking forward to reading this book, but Rachel Lynn Solomon did such a nice job on GoodReads:


Sounds amazing, right?

  1. Yup, I agree with this GIF! Gosh that blurb, Sam, I want them to get their happy ending even though I know it's possible and it's beautiful all at once.

    1. One of the dance moms I knew had given one of her kidneys to her husband, and she joked that she wanted it back if they divorced, but I always thought it was such a selfless and wonderful thing to do for another person. This story looks at the darker side of it, and I am interested. Though, obviously, I want an HEA, because that's just in my DNA.

  2. This does sound like a really complicated and heartbreaking story - I already feel bad for Sophie because it seems like she donated her kidney just to get a boyfriend.

  6. THANK YOU Sam!!! I just requested the title on Netgalley based on your post (but it's "wish for it" so I don't have great hopes....). I really cross my fingers as it seems right up my alley! Sophie ébewareofthereader

  16. I like the sound of first kisses in bookstores especially! I actually don't read too many Jewish characters so it's actually something I am actively looking to do as well. The author really sells the book well!
