My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
This book had a great variety of issues about family conflict, sickness, love, and morality. It tells a story about a young teenage girl who is tired of being a lab rat to treat her sister’s rare cancer. I cannot imagine, even as an adult, having to make a decision that could possibly tear your own family apart, as well as possibly cause a sibling’s death. Or to be in the mother’s shoes, wanting to do what is best for all your children, yet hurting at least one no matter what decision you make. It is not completely serious, either, as there is comic relief by certain characters and their interactions.
The format the author uses is totally unique. By writing each chapter from a different character’s point of view, the reader has the chance to see all sides of the story and relate to all the characters. I would definitely recommend this for a great summer read!
