My Sisters Keeper
Reviewed by- Haley (2010/07/02, 06:49 PM)
"My Sister's Keeper" was the first of Jodi Picoult's books that I read, but certainly not the last, for she drew me into her powerful and thought-provoking novels. Picoult has the ability to take even the most controversial issue and allow readers to equally see both sides of the conflict, no matter how strongly they may support one idea. My Sister's Keeper had me laughing, crying, and smiling all along as Picoult takes us on an emotional rollercoaster of sisters Anna and Kate. You will not want to put this book down as it unfolds before you. At first, I was torn between Anna and Kate. Having a sister close in age, I related to their relationship, yet both hated and loved the decisions they both made. Also, Picoult causes readers to ask the question: how far should a mother go to save a child? and at what expense? However, I do warn readers to take the movie with a grain of salt. I felt that the movie, although good on it's own, was no match for the book and almost cheapened the powerful story the novel gives. True to popular belief, the book was way better. I suggest readers engage in the novel first! You will love this book and pass it on to friends.Back.
