My Sister's Keeper author Jodi Picoult

A great read! Picoult seamlessly weaves differing points of view with each character narrating the story. It's the story of Anna, a young girl who was conceived as a perfect match organ donor for her sister Kate who suffers from acute leukemia. Though her parents love her, Anna feels trapped in a situation she can't control constantly putting her life and dreams on hold to supply her sister with platelets, blood, and bone marrow. Now her sister needs a kidney, and Anna finds the courage to take charge of her life and her own body in a heartbreaking dilemma. If she donates the kidney, where does it stop? If she doesn't, is she killing her sister? Picoult tells the story of a family torn apart and the silkens strands of love that bind them together.

Hey, thanks for the preview. I got the book as a gift and really haven't had the time, but I look forward to reading it now.

I loved this book. I think that Picoult has an amazing talent for writing lives that are unlike her own. I am a bit embarassed to admit that I cried while reading the last chapters of the book. However, I love it when that happens to me-I love being so involved in a book that it tunes into my emotions and Picoult is very good at doing that. I love her books and I can't wait to read her newest "Nineteen Minutes"
