Description'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 leukaemia 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.

Reviews for My Sister's Keeper
Another great book by Jodi Picoult
I am a huge Jodi Picoult fan, and love how she writes about topics that are controversial and lead to great discussions. My sisters keeper is no exception, and visits themes that are thought provoking and leave you questioning what you would do differently if you were in the shoes of the characters in her books.
Told from the perspective of several of the characters in the book, My sisters keeper is a heartwrenching story about a family who are dealing with an illness. It's a well written, thought provoking story and one of Jodi Picoult's best books. by Lauren
