[Spoilers follow, although if you've yet to see My Sister's Keeper, you're not missing anything.]

When I first read My Sister’s Keeper, I was devastated. The tale, told from multiple points of view, centers on a teenager with leukemia, Kate, and her younger sister, Anna, who was conceived solely to be a possible donor match for her dying big sister. But one summer, following many painful procedures, Anna decides she doesn’t want to be part of her sister’s medical treatments anymore and sues her parents for medical emancipation. The whole family struggles with the fact that if Anna stops her treatments, Kate will die.

The book grapples with big questions about medical ethics and family responsibilities. »
