Pictured is a screenshot of the front cover of "Things My Therapist Doesn't Want Me to Say: Ten Years Post Heart Transplant". The front cover is a selfie of a naked girl who is resting on the bathroom sink counter. The counter has a toothbrush, pillbox containers, toothpaste and a medication bottle scattered on it.  The girl has blue hair, is wearing green sunglasses and has a heart monitor.
At the age of twelve, Emma awoke one day in a hospital bed with no knowledge as to why she was there. She soon learned she had received a life-saving heart transplant. From then on, Emma was prescribed a new life structure that never felt like her own.
This memoir is her account of trying to let go of finding a reason for all the chaos in her life.
