Abstract:

An incredible journey into the life of a young heart transplant patient, Sick Girl is extraordinary both for its gripping story of a medical miracle and for its unique and forceful narrator, Amy Silverstein. At just 24, Amy was a typical type-A law-student: smart, driven, and competitive. With a budding romance and a heavy academic schedule, Amy did not have time for illness - even one that caused her heart to pound violently and erratically, for her to blackout, lose her breath, and even suffer temporary blindness. When her doctor suggested that her symptoms were due to stress and diet, she was more than happy to drop a few classes, think calm thoughts, and eat fistfuls of salt. At such a young age, how could she have guessed that her heart was about to give out?
