my sister's keeper

My Sister's Keeper

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never questioned… until now. 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, 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?

My Thoughts

Dah lama nak buat review ni.. tapi sebab nad sayang nak baca buku ni so lambat la habis.. baru last week habis baca... apa yang nad dapat simpulkan buku ni memang best! sangat touching... cuma ade la yang tak faham especially medical term.. but that's not the problem.. this book betul-betul buat nad terfikir jika nad berada dalam situasi tersebut... ending nye sangat touching.. nad dah nak nangis tapi masa tu baru balik keje dalam LRT. so malu la pulak nanti orang tengok. hehe... the ending is unpredictable!! its heartwrenching tho.. the ending is different between the film and the book itself.. tak sabar nak tengok movie version pulak...
If you are new to Jodi Picoult's writing, My Sister's Keeper is a good place to start. It is a page turner that you won't to put down, but it also an emotional roller coaster. Don't read if you don't like to cry.
