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.
If you’re looking for a well-rounded novel, this is it! My Sister’s Keeper is very often the first book of hers that is read by every Jodi Picoult fan. The novel was incredible enough to have a movie based on it as well, but trust us, you don’t want to settle for the movie! While its portrayal of the story is great, the movie certainly veered from the original storyline, particularly towards the ending which has its signature Picoult twist.
Even if you’re not a fan of this genre, My Sister’s Keeper is a novel you should read. Both intense and entertaining, with powerful imagery, it is a story that tackles the deep core of a number of issues in a manner which you wouldn’t have even thought of before. Every character is fleshed out well, realistic, and (we warned you) will break your heart. But it will be worth it, we swear. Moralism and deep issues aside, My Sister’s Keeper is entertaining and will have you occupied the entire weekend!
