Not exactly what you're asking for, but I can recommend "Alive" by Chandler Baker. It's Y fiction about a girl who gets a heart transplant and the heart is leading her in a different direction. Page turner.

The other is The Boys in the Boat, nonfiction story of the US Rowing Team in the 1935 olympics in Germany. Really good.
