Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age 13 she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now. 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.

My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart or let others lead you? Once again, in My Sister's Keeper, Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.

A story that makes you think

This story sure makes you think about your own morals and ethics and makes you wonder what you would do in that situation.
The story was really well written and the narrator did a fantastic job as Well. This is the first book I read by this author. I would certainly try another one.

I hate books and I recommend this one

Best book I’ve ever read, it’s long and boring during some parts, but so much different from the movie and really good

Excellent Audible Find

I read the book years ago and on a whim downloaded the audiobook. I was not disappointed! The multi-voice style really works with this story and created a very engaging experience. #Audible1

BRB sobbing

I’ve seen the movie, not since it came out though. I suppose I was looking for a reason to cry when I downloaded this😭 My heart is so broken ugh! Loved it but so sad
I really really love that each chapter is in someone else’s perspective!

Excellent

Beautiful story read by multiple voices. Very engaging. Definitely an ethical dilemma. Looking forward to listening to more of her stories.

Satisfying story

Good premise, but draggy in a lot of it. Most characters acted believably but lots of stuff that could be removed. Satisfying ending.
