"A major decision about me is being made, and no one's bothered to ask the one person who most deserves it to speak her opinion." The only reason Anna was born was to donate her cord blood cells to her older sister. And though Anna is not sick, she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since she was a child. Anna was born for this purpose, her parents tell her, which is why they love her even more. But now that she has reached an age of physical awareness, she can't help but long for control over her own body and respite from the constant flow of her own blood seeping into her sister's veins. And so she makes a decision that for most would be too difficult to bear, at any time and at any age. She decides to sue her parents for the rights to her own body.

No one starts a war-or rather, no one in his sense ought to do so-without first being clear in his mind what he intends to achieve by that war and how he intends to conduct it. -CARL VON CLAUSEWITZ, Vom Kriege. In my first memory, I am three years old and I am trying to kill my sister. Sometimes the recollection is so clear I can remember the itch of the pillowcase under my hand, the sharp point of her nose pressing into my palm. She didn't stand a chance against me, of course, but it still didn't work.

Talk about My Sister's Keeper


Kulwes
This is not my usual book to read. We chose it in book club, but I loved it. Great writing and really made me think about how we treat each other as human beings. Also gave me more empathy for the troubled and bullied kids out there. Cried for the last 3 or 4 chapters. It is truly a heart wrenching story (situation) for all those involved. I certainly re-evaluated some of my opinions of people and reminded me not to judge others when I don't know all the facts. This was a book I could not put down!
Arilak
I've read this novel twice. Once a few years ago and again recently for a book club. This novel is timely and very well written.
I am in my late 60's and glad that my child
rearing days are well behind me. Parenting is very challenging, especially the teenage years. Although people always look to the parents when a child exhibits antisocial & troublesome behaviors but while the parents may be the primary caregivers the child comes in contact with many people who help shape their personalities. This book examines every aspect of Peter's life experiences and leaves us to decide which influences contributed to his attitudes.

I had heard great reviews of this book (as well as the movie) and I decided to give it a try. From the opening pages, I was hooked...great story line, riveting character development, and an ethical dilemma that leaves you wondering who the good guys and bad guys are (and believe me, sometimes not being able to tell!). I would be lying, however, if I didn't mention a slight "cheese factor", especially in regards to the lawyer, Campbell, and his relationship with court-appointed guardian-ad-litem, but it doesn't change the fact that I had a hard time putting this book down.
I am a critical care nurse (with a physician husband), so I admit it's harder for me to suspend any reality when it comes to healthcare in literature...any exaggerations or inaccuracies usually become so difficult for me to overcome that it taints my entire impression of a book. This book, however, made it easy to look past that....at least, that is, until the ending. Not only was it incredibly inaccurate from a healthcare approach (I would give an example but it would give the entire story away), but it felt as though the story, which had a great pace throughout, suddenly rocket-launched just to get to the finish line. The ending is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars, but this is still a deeply moving, worthy read!

I'm pretty shocked that parents had a problem with this book being assigned to high school students. It's completely relevant to today's youth. What's surprising about the attempt to ban this book was that parents had a problem with the sex scenes, not the violence. Sure, a kid shoots other kids and that's no problem but even the mere mention of sexually active high school students sends parents into a fit? Grow up. There are much larger issues in this book, as in life, and sex doesn't always have to be the first thing on everyone's mind. Come on adults--let's set a better example of our kids. Read this book to remember what high school was like and see it through your kid's eyes. Talk to them about bullying, and about sex, instead of trying to ban a book that can easily open the conversation.

Being a retired teacher, I was drawn to this story. (I also really have enjoyed reading many Jodi Picoult stories). Too many children are bullied in today's world. Too many children try to hide their soft, quiet personalities just to try and blend in with those who bully others. Jodi describes the world those "picked on kids" live in and she does it with her emotionally charged writing style. Well done!

Three stars for Ms. Picoult's courage to write on such a difficult subject, and for her mostly appropriate portrayal of the various age-groups and the genders. Minus two for what came across as sometimes a juvenile writing style (her book Plain Truth was much better imho), and for the cutoff at the end that left too much gap between what occurred throughout the story and the abrupt ending she left hanging for some of the characters. She tried to tie it all up in the final chapter, but it did not answer many questions, nor did it do justice to the buildup during the story.

Wow! What insight into the minds of those who are so relentlessly victimized that they finally snap and become victimizers. I've worked with adult clients who say, based on their own experiences of being constantly bullied throughout school, that the victims of mass school shootings deserve it. I don't agree, of course, but I understand the rage. Having worked in the public school system, I can guarantee you that the preferred method of dealing with bullying is to ignore it. We cannot let this continue. Bullying destroys the self-esteem of people for many, many years, if not a lifetime. I was bullied throughout elementary school and, thank God, my parents moved so I could get a fresh start where I was accepted and even enjoyed a certain level of popularity ... so it isn't always the "victim's fault" that they are picked on. If your child is bullied and your school won't deal with it, (1) turn them into their superintendent, (2) turn them into your state's education agency, (3) insist that the district allow your child to change schools, (4) if you must, move, (5) arrange for QUALITY home school, (6) pay for private school, (7) get your child counseling with a counselor who enjoys playing with younger kids or talking to older kids and teens, but DO SOMETHING because school bullying causes lifelong self-esteem issues that affect academic success, careers, and whether or not your child becomes a bully or marries one.
