Eighteen-year-old Harrison Haddon has grown up alone. Surrounded by wealth, nannies, and material things, all he craves is the approval of his father. Sent away to the boarding school his father and grandfather attended, it’s assumed he will follow in their footsteps from Sydney’s prestigious Ivy League school straight into medical school.

But Harrison doesn’t want to be a doctor.

He dreams of music and classical piano. His only true happiness, his escape from the world expected of him, is dismissed by his intolerant and emotionally detached parents.
Levi Aston arrives from London for a three-month student exchange program. Free-spirited and confident in who he is and what he wants to do with his life, Levi convinces Harrison not give up on his dreams.

But convincing Harrison not to give up on his family might not be so easy.

Walker is one of those authors I HAVE to read. And there isn’t a book yet that I haven’t enjoyed. Exchange of Hearts is no exception. This is definitely a fluffier, lighter one of Walker’s books, so I suggest grabbing this one when you’re coming off of a book hangover.

Harrison and Levi meet at an Australian boarding school. Levi is finished his London schooling and takes advantage of a 3 month abroad program before college starts. These two become roommates and begin a relationship. But they know 3 months is all they have. Or is it?

Harrison’s father has always put pressure on him to become a doctor, just like himself. But Harrison has always wanted to study music and play piano. Levi just may inspire Harrison to show his father that dreams can come true.

This one will give you a sweet tooth! It was easy, breezy. Nothing wrong with that, but I personally like some grit, some angst, some drama. Harrison and his father were the only problems in the whole book. But it’s Walker, so you know the flow was smooth and flawless.
