Patrice Lawrence – Best Book of 2017

Patrice Lawrence, YA writer of Orangeboy and Indigo Donut, selects her Best Book of 2017…

Out of Heart

My favourite book of 2017 was Irfan Master’s Out Of Heart.

​Fifteen-year-old Adam’s family is recovering from tragedy, traumatised and judged by the local community.

Adam’s grandfather, the most significant man in Adam’s life, dies and donates his heart. William, a l loner, receives the heart and finds his way into Adam’s family.

I adore London books, but this book captured the east London voices I hear everyday in a poignant, funny and poetic tale that has stayed with me long after reading it.
