My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoutt


My Sister's Keeper                                                         By 
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, in My Sister's Keeper, Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.



Not usually in my reading genre but this book was given to me as a gift  and hence why I started reading it. What seemed to be like a boring book as I judged it on it's cover proved to  be false as this book kept me captivated to the end. Promising to bring anyone to tears, it really brings you to think about your moral compass. What would you do for the one you love?  and How far will you go? Will you subject someone else to the torture you are willing to endure for the one you love? This is the subject every single character face. How can you choose from one son to another daughter. Picking favorites? Can you ? A family is practically torn five different ways apart after the tragic news that one of their own  was diagnosed with cancer. The young characters definitely displayed true courage and the ending is so  not what one would expect. I must say I was very upset at some of the characters but none more than the mom. In the end you realize that she is torn between three kids and felt as if she was at the end of a cliff. I dare you all to read this and not feel compelled. I definitely give it five stars with a teardrop.
