My Sisters Keeper – Jodi Picoult

14 Dec

Synopsis – “A major decision about me is being made, and no one’s bothered to ask the one person who most deserves it to speak her opinion.”

The only reason Anna was born was to donate her cord blood cells to her older sister. And though Anna is not sick, she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since she was a child. Anna was born for this purpose, her parents tell her, which is why they love her even more. But now that she has reached an age of physical awareness, she can’t help but long for control over her own body and respite from the constant flow of her own blood seeping into her sister’s veins.

And so she makes a decision that for most would be too difficult to bear, at any time and at any age. She decides to sue her parents for the rights to her own body.

My thoughts – this is a book that i wanted to read for a long time however i had heard some mixed reviews about it. I have to say that i loved this book, it made me cry at the end of the book, didnt see the ending coming either. I read this book in just over a day, thats how addictive this book was. I loved how the book didnt sent on just one character, but on several and then they all had their own points of veiw. also how the book jumped about from the past to the present, how it followed the progress of the week. This is a fantastic read and would highly recommend it to anyone.

this was also a book for my rory challenge, however i had wanted to read too
