My Sister's Keeper

By
My Sister's Keeper: a heartbreaking, tragic story of one girl's will to live or die. Kate was diagnosed with leukemia when she was only 3 years of age, and has been suffering ever since. She's undergone countless surgeries, from organ transplants to blood transfusions. Anna, Kate's younger sibling, was conceived for the sole purpose of giving Kate life, in the form of organs, blood, bone marrow and more. What happens when Anna wants to try living her live, not giving it to someone else? How will Kate be affected by that decision?
But what happens when Anna sues her parents, for medical emancipation, and agrees to giving up Kate's life for her own? You automatically assume that Anna will win the case, Kate's life will meet a grim end, and Anna will go on in life to discover never before seen things. If this is your assumption, then you are gravely mistaken. This book goes on after the lawsuit, and some surprising things happen. If you are wiling to investigate further into My Sister's Keeper, pick up a copy at your nearest library or bookstore.

My Sister's Keeper is one of Picoult's masterpieces...it was the first book of hers I picked up. And now I have read all twelve of her novels, and I can't wait for the next book. This book brought me to the edge and the brink of tears - highly recommended for everyone.
