14112011: In My Mailbox (3)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren
It's a day late, oh no! Oh well, I had a legitimate reason though, with a banging headache yesterday I tried to avoid the computed except for necessities, and by that I mean finishing up my Art Evaluation. During this week I didn't actually buy anything but instead got this book out from the Library for my college book club, not only does it have a beautiful cover, it sounds pretty interesting!

The Boy With The Cuckoo-Clock Heart: Edinburgh, 1874. On the coldest night the world has ever seen, Little Jack is born with a frozen heart and immediately undergoes a life-saving operation. But Dr Madeleine is no conventional medic and surgically implants a cuckoo-clock into his chest. Little Jack grows up different to other children: every day begins with a daily wind-up. At school he is bullied for his 'ticking', but Dr Madeleine reminds him he must resist strong emotion: anger is far too dangerous for his cuckoo-clock heart. So when the beautiful young street-singer, Miss Acacia, appears - pursued by Joe, the school bully - Jack is in danger of more than just falling in love... he is putting his life on the line.
