    Jodi Picoult tells the story of a girl who decides to sue her parents for the rights to her own body in thisNew York Times bestseller that tackles a controversial subject with grace and explores what it means to be a good person.

    New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

    Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate—a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister—and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

    My Sister’s Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child’s life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart, or let others lead you? Once again, inMy Sister’s Keeper, Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.

    • A powerful novel

      Whatever you do, PLEASE read this book. My mother bought it from O for my birthday this year and I could not put it down. I'm only 25, but have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. NO other book has ever made me as emotional as this one. Trust me, My Sister's Keeper is such a powerful story that will move you like no other. Do yourself a favor... buy it!

    • Brilliantly Poignant with a Twist in the End

      A friend recommended this book to me, and I absolutely LOVED it! The story is told from a young girl's point of view, but don't make your judgment too early! Her life is unlike that of any ordinary girl. I can't say too much without revealing the plot of the story, but read it, you dont regret it!!
