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, and 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.
I was so entranced in the story of Anna that i read late into the night, hiding under the sheets with only the light of my iPod and the conforting sound of Jack Johnson in my ears. This book is like a tidal wave of emotion, and sent me into hysterics at the end. I was bawling for at least fifteen minutes. After I finally stopped crying, i had to go back and re-read the ending. I was so shocked. the words did i REALLY just read that, kept moving through my mind, even when i lost consciousness. I could not believe it. This book is so wonderfully written. Picoult perfectly portrayed the entire families feelings, and how Kate's illness had such effect on Anna and their brother
What i especially loved about this book was how it continuously switched perspective, and each perspective was in a different font. It really helps you grasp the different things everyone is feeling, and how the things that occur throughout the story effect everyone differently. It really helps you dig deep and find the meaning of the story.
Basically, it was beautifully-written, a emotional ride, a page-turner, and SHOCKING. This book will amaze and shock you beyond belief.
If you've read Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, Saving Zoe by Alyson Noel, or Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin and are looking for books a step above them, this is book is for you. My Sister's Keeper is is a book that will touch everyone who reads it (even the unwilling readers), and change the way you view life. . . and maybe even the way you live it.
