Quarter 4 blog

Tess Gerritsen

The book started out with a scene of some Russian orphans getting taken to America to be 'adopted'. Then it would go to some hospital scenes in Boston then back to the boat the orphans were on. The book is all about harvesting organs and the transplants that take place. At certain times organs with missing papers and no indication of who the donor is start showing up for the more wealthy patients. Its pretty obvious that the orphans on the boat are the ones who are being harvested unwillingly for their healthy organs. In this case the main character had to search for the answers while the reader could tell what was going on. The other example of foreshadowing is when the main characters boyfriend starts to show up late and avoid her for different things. He is apart of the conspiracy and the audience knows that, but it takes abbey a long time to find that out. By the time she does figure it out she's ready to be killed by him because she found out his hospitals secrets.


  1. WOW! Sounds like a depresing book. I guess I dont quite understand the foreshadowing, buy if you do thats all that matters. Do tou enjoy it so far? if the boyfrann loves her, then i dont get why he wants to kill her. Also, i think they shall give the organs to the people who need them most, and not just the wealtthy. The book sounds confusing, but also enjoyable.

  2. I agree with does sound kind of depressing. Is it? The foreshadowing seems interesting..I don't like the boyfriend because he seems really mean and I don't know why he would want to kill his girlfriend.
