According to Japanese legend, folding a thousand paper cranes will grant you healing.

Evelyn Abel will fold two thousand if it will bring Luc back to her.

Luc Argent has always been intimately acquainted with death. After a car crash got him a second chance at life—via someone else’s transplanted heart—he tried to embrace it. He truly did. But he always knew death could be right around the corner again.

And now it is.

Sick of hospitals and tired of transplants, Luc is ready to let his failing heart give out, ready to give up. A road trip to Oregon—where death with dignity is legal—is his answer. But along for the ride is his best friend, Evelyn.


And she’s not giving up so easily.

A thousand miles, a handful of roadside attractions, and one life-altering kiss later, Evelyn’s fallen, and Luc’s heart is full. But is it enough to save him? Evelyn’s betting her heart, her life, that it can be.

Right down to the thousandth paper crane.

Oh, my goodness...this book! Ok so to be honest, I knew going into reading Other Breakable Things that the sadness factor was oozing from the pages.

I finished reading Other Breakable Things, late at night, as one does, and I really liked it. There are some very poignant moments about death, dying, and what it means to die with dignity, etc. so I found myself highlighting so much of the book that it's actually slightly ridiculous. Like there... ...more
