Fascinating premise, really interesting moral questions--all ruined by the ending. Skip the last 10 pages if you want to like the book.


This was the first book I've read by this author. Completely heart wrenching and when the reveals happen, it breaks my heart. At the end, all I wanted to say to the mom was, "Are you happy now? You got what you wanted. Be careful of what you wish for."

Parenting Fails/successes

This book was a great introduction into how parenting is not always a right or wrong answer, sometimes you are living in the gray. This was done by looking into the different perspectives each person in a given situation may feel or have while struggling with various issues. I highly recommend this book to 13+.

Not Bad

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.

Sad but good

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 :)

Well done.

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!

My Sister's Keeper

An incredibly sad book, filled with emotion. It tells of desperate parents, an unhappy girl, and her dying sister.
