Description - Heartfelt by Aidan Smith
A lifelong Hibs fan takes on the challenge that TV's `Faking It' and `Wifeswap' were too scared to even contemplate as he tries to follow his team's hated rivals Hearts for an entire season. With gritty realism and riveting detail, Aidan Smith demonstrates the importance of loyalty in being a fan. Going undercover, he swaps his colours, drinks in rivals' pubs and even sings their songs, trying to get under the skin of the opposition.

He lives his life by a simple code - 7-0, 7-0, in celebration of the most famous Hibs victory over Hearts there's ever been - and he's just become terribly aware that his bank account, his computer, his mobile phone, etc are now easy prey for hackers...
