Moonface: A True Romance


About the Book

A hilarious, incredibly moving memoir about how one woman found romance and laughter in the most unlikely way: by having a kidney transplant. At the age of eighteen, Angela Balcita had reached a point in her life when her health could not keep up with her optimistic personality. After suffering kidney failure, she was in desperate need of an organ transplant. Stepping up to the plate, her brother - cool, unflappable, distant - offered to donate her his kidney. However, after that courageous act of compassion, Angela's body did the unexpected and rejected her brother's kidney. Lucky for Angela, she had found the ultimate partner-in-crime: her boyfriend, Charlie. Although they had known each other for only a short period of time, Charlie offered Angela his kidney, which she accepted with not a small amount of hesitation but a whole lot of gratitude and pure love. The story that followed is one that you will not soon forget, especially when Charlie crafts the moniker "Moonface" for Angela (an odd side effect of the medication that she must take). By turns funny, bittersweet, and heartwarming, 'Moonface' is a book that will make readers laugh, cry, and, above all, appreciate the importance of unconditional love.
