HOLD ME LIKE A BREATH, by Tiffany Schmidt

hold me

The story: Penelope Landlow is the daughter of a crime family that deals in black-market organ sales. Need a heart? A new liver? No problem if you have the cash. She also has a disease that keeps her locked up at home. But when a rival “Family” in the business apparently brutally murders her parents and brothers, she stages a disappearance into the night. When she accidentally bumps into the son of one of the other organ-dealing families, she falls in love with him without realizing his true identity. Can Char keep her safe–or is he part of the plot that left her an orphan?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a love at first sight story, combined with mystery and peril.  Girls grades 7 and up will find it to be just right, as long as you’re not put off by a few murders.
