I recently read "My Sister's Keeper," by Jodi Picoult for my bookclub. Have I mentioned that I love going to my book club? Just wondering.
I was worried about the book since it deals with such a hot topic, but surprisingly I made it all the way through the book. Of course there were tears. There are always tears. I blame it on my first born. Those pregnancy hormonal imbalances that make you all emotional and you cry at the drop of a hat...yeah, it never went away.
Anyhoodles, I recommend this book to ya'll. I know there were some people in our group who were unable to finish it due to the subject matter, but I still recommend it.
Well, in a nutshell it's about a girl who has leukemia and the parents decide to have another child that is genetically chosen to be a perfect match in order to help her sister. The book catches up to the youngest daughter when she is a teenager and is finally deciding to stand up for herself and not allow her parents to take advantage of her anymore.
If you've read it leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Did you like it? Hate it? Not be able to finish it? I'd love to hear from you!!
