Heart Beat - Joanne Carlton

Heart-Beat - Joanne Carlton

Sixteen-year old Sam knows life will never be easy for her. Socially awkward and armed only with a brilliant mind and feisty character, she struggles with things that other teenagers find normal. Only her best friend Jasper really gets her.

Eighteen-year old college student Jasper strives to be the perfect son to his successful parents, working himself to the ground to fulfill their wishes. Up until the point that he crashes when his heart fails. The best friends learn the devastating news that Jasper has a tumor embedded deeply into his heart and hasn’t got much time left.

Devastated, Sam convinces him to pursue his ultimate dream: To sing in front of a live audience once before he dies. The friends head to London, where Jasper signs up for the ultimate singing competition. Knowing he has nothing left to lose, Jasper gives it all.

As the competition progresses, his health deteriorates rapidly. Jasper is torn between leaving his family behind and following his heart. Sam struggles with the knowledge that they will have to say goodbye soon. In the end, both can’t help but wonder if pursuing the ultimate goal was worth the heartache after all.

Heart-Beat is a heartfelt story about the ultimate friendship and making choices. If these were the last days of your life, what would you do?

Wie is Joanne?

Joanne Carlton schrijft al voor zolang ze zich kan herinneren in verschillende genres. Zij pende aanvankelijk in het Nederlands onder de auteursnaam Sandra J. Paul, tot ze besloot om haar aloude droom om Engelstalige boeken en kortverhalen te publiceren, na te jagen.
