Classic Crave: My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult

December 17, 2008 at 8:33 am Leave a comment

We read this in July 2006 for book group.

Anna was born as a genetic match to Kate, who has leukemia. Anna’s cord blood puts Kate into remission for six years, then the doctors do a bone marrow transplant and Kate is in remission again. However, now 16, Kate has kidney failure and Anna hires Campbell to legally have her medically emancipated so she can refuse to be Kate’s donor again. The story takes place during one week, with flashbacks provided by their mom and chapters are told from alternating points of view.

I love Jodi Picoult and this was the first book I read by her and I still think it’s her best. This is an excellent book, well-written, but be prepared with a box of tissues when you read it as it’s sad. And with all Jodi Picoult books, there’s an ending twist you don’t see coming.
