My Sister’s Keeper

By: Jodi Picoult

My Sister’s Keeper looks at what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of pre-implantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate—a life and a role that she has never questioned…until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is struggling with who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister, until she makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable—a decision that will tear her family apart and could have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. In 2009, New Line Cinema released a feature film adaptation of My Sister’s Keeper, starring Cameron Diaz and Abigail Breslin.
