Laura Geringer Bass is the author of over 20 highly acclaimed books for children, tweens, and teens.
Her new novel for middle graders about friendship, love, and loss -- The Girl With More Than One Heart -- is the lyrical story of a courageous girl who imagines she needs an extra heart to navigate her grief after the death of her dad.

Meet The Girl With More Than One Heart!
 
There are times we all feel we need more than one heart to get through. When Briana’s father dies, she imagines she has a new heart growing inside her. It speaks to her in her Dad’s voice. Some of its commands are mysterious. 
Find Her!  it says. Be Your Own!  
How can Briana “be her own” when her grieving mother needs her to take care of her demanding little brother all the time? When all her grandpa can do is tell stories instead of being the “rock" she needs? When her not-so-normal home life leaves no time to pursue her dream of writing for the school literary magazine? When the first blush of a new romance threatens to be nipped in the bud? Forced by the loss of her favorite parent to see all that was once familiar with new eyes, Briana draws on her own imagination, originality, and tender loving heart to discover a surprising path through the storm. 

 

 

Fantasy Movie Cast for The Girl with More Than One Heart

 

Briana’s Mom:

Rachel Weisz or Laura Linney or Naomi Watts play grief and depression beautifully but also radiate a loving warmth.

 

Briana’s Dad:

Mark Ruffalo or Jake Gyllenthal or Matthew Rhys Evans or Hugh Jackman are ruggedly and soulfully handsome and can portray a deep father/daughter bond with Briana.

 

Briana:

 

Dafne Keen (or Sophia Lillis or Maggie Elizabeth Jones or McKenna Grace or Tabitha Bateman). Dafne Keen is magnetic in Logan and demonstrated the range of emotion called for by the star role of Briana.

 

Aaron:

Asher Miles Fallica is a knock out in Tully where he plays a very young boy on the spectrum, like Aaron.

 

Peter:

Xolo Maridueña or Emjee Anthony have Peter’s charm and charisma, as well as the ability to project a gravity beyond their years. Xolo is tall like Peter. Emjee is touching in Chef.

 

Didi:

Letitia Wright - Didi is attractive but also strict and demanding and even a bit rigid. Letitia in Black Panther very much fits the part.

 

Grandpa Ben:

 

Jeff Bridges or Albert Brooks (The ideal actor for this role would have been Spencer Tracey). Grandpa Ben is my dad and my dad looked like Spencer Tracey, who unfortunately is no longer around to play him.
Jeff Bridges has the same sort of spark of humanity in his eyes. A regular guy with salt-of-the- earth humor.
