Thoughts and feelings about the world…

This is a review on… My Sister’s Keeper

One day on my mom’s bookshelf, I found a book called My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult. My mom and sister had read it, and they both liked it. I read the back of the book, and it sounded really good. So I began to read it.

The book is about a girl named Anna Fitzgerald who was conceived in order to save her sister Kate’s life. Kate has leukemia, and her parents took Kate’s traits, and they were implanted through IVF. Anna’s body parts are used to save Kate, who goes back and forth between remission and relapse.

When Anna turns thirteen, Kate, who is in renal failure, needs a kidney from Anna. Anna knows that if she donates it, she can’t have kids or participate in sports. Anna sues her parents for medical emancipation.

This book was really good, and I’m definitely glad I picked it up.  I’m not going to spoil the ending, but the ending was sad and unpredictable.  I was really surprised by the ending, and at first I was mad at Jodi for writing the ending the way she did. After I reread the book, though, I realized why she choose the ending she did, and it made more sense.

Next Review: I don’t have anything planned for my next review, but if you want me to talk about something  just leave the title and author (if you’re requesting a book) in a comment.  You can leave titles of books, movies, songs, or names of artists, and I’ll check them out. Have a nice night.
