My Sister's Keeper
My eyes are still puffy from reading and crying! I have been wrapped up in Jodi Picoult's, My Sister's Keeper, for a week or so. It was recommended to me by several blogging friends and I found a copy at my Grandma's house a month ago. However, needless to say, I haven't gotten to it right away! Been a little busy!
It was a wonderful book! Fascinating and thought-provoking and with a major twist at the end that I didn't see coming. It's about a girl who was conceived so that she could donate cord blood to her older sister who has Leukemia. However, she has spent her life as a donor for her sister without ever being a part in the decision-making so she sues her parents for medical emancipation. The author swore more in her book than I was expecting, but otherwise, I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed seeing the issue from so many different perspectives and understanding where each one of them was coming from. I loved that while, it wasn't a happy ending in the traditional sense, it was the perfect resolution and brought peace to an awful situation! Read it!!
