This is the stirring account of 12-year-old David Yomtoob's struggle to survive a genetic disorder that can only be cured by a liver transplant. Through a series of alternating narratives from David's mother, Parichehr, and writer Ted Schwartz, the reader follows the emotional story of David's diagnosis of Wilson's Disease and his decline into coma, while doctors search for an appropriate donor. The story details the day-to-day activities of the organ transplant center at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, and chronicles the story of a mother waiting for the miracle that can give her son a chance to survive. The reader will rejoice in David's recovery. John Pekkanen's recent Donor ( LJ 1/86) is more polished and detailed, but readers will find this absorbing. Debra Berlanstein, Towson State Univ.
