Reviews & Summaries
Was not happy with the ending--Picoult proclaims she wanted it to be realistic, but I did not think it was--but when it was changed for the movie, I found I actually liked this one better.
This is one of the saddest, most touching books I have ever read. It is the story of a young girl who is constantly undergoing surgeries for her cancerous sister and her fight to make her own choices. It includes several unexpected turns. I recommend this book! Just be prepared that it may make you cry if you are sensitive like me :)
Usually I hate perspective changes, but I appreciated them in this book. Well done.
This is a great book, wonderfully written. It has a surprising ending and it is extremely moving. Makes you think twice about everyday things you take for granted. Recommended for 13+
This book is full of raw human emotion, family tensions, and dilemmas. It's enough to keep you awake at night...thinking away. It's a must read, especially if you have siblings!
An incredibly sad book, filled with emotion. It tells of desperate parents, an unhappy girl, and her dying sister.
