With her penetrating insight into the hearts and minds of real people, Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person, and what happens when emotions meet with scientific advances.
An amazing story of two sisters, one wanting to live and grow up the other ready to end the battle of cancer. I was brought to tears reading this book, i loved every part of it. i was surprised and brought to tears with how this ended so differently from the movie but i LOVED it all the same. this is a must read for anyone struggling with something like this in their family or just really looking for something good to read that will move you in more ways than one. i am currently looking for the book cause i would love to read it again, and i must recommend that if you like this book you should consider reading The vow, The Time travelers wife.both also really great books and movies as well.
"My Sister's Keeper" brought me to tears. A desperate family scenario painted from many different angles - just when I thought "yes that's how I'd feel", I'd be offered an alternative view that would be just as convincing. I was reading it for my book club, we sat up until late at night, discussing and arguing the many issues raised. How many novels do you recommend to both your teenage daughter and your mother-in-law?! A wonderful introduction to the world of Jodi Picoult.
This was my first Jodi Picoult book and definitely not my last. My Sister's Keeper gives the different perspective of each character and how they deal with Kate's cancer. It was an unexpected ending which kept you interested to the very end
