Conceived to provide a bone marrow match for her leukemia-stricken sister, teenage Kate begins to question her moral obligations in light of countless medical procedures and decides to fight for the right to make decisions about her own body. New York Times bestselling 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 thirteen, 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.… (plus d'informations)

    La pure vérité par Jodi Picoult (AllieAldy)
    AllieAldy: Another phenomenal book by Jodi Picoult, draws you in and is as suspenseful as My Sister's Keeper.

    Le client par John Grisham (ShannonMDE)
    ShannonMDE: I think My Sister's Keeper had the feel of early John Grisham back when he wrote about people instead of corporations.

    While My Sister Sleeps par Barbara Delinsky (dara85)

    Un amour de jeunesse par Ann Packer (BookshelfMonstrosity)

I read maybe 1/3 of this book before I gave up. I don't care for the writing, the characters (the mom is a TOTAL bitch), anything about this book. I will say that I skipped through and read the last several pages to see what happened, to see if the book had the same ending as the movie (it doesn't.) I read this one in paperback, but I have another book by Jodi Picoult (Plain Truth) on my e-reader, and if it's anything like this one, I won't be reading it all the way through, either. ( )

This book broke me. I ugly cried and it's been a very long time since I have read a book that brought that sort of reaction out of me.

I will never read it again but I am very glad that I read it this one time. The characters were so damn real. Anna...spunky, independent but my heart ached for her. I felt so bad for Jesse too. Don't get me wrong, I felt bad for Kate too, but I figured she had her mom all up in feelings so she didn't me too much. Dad...well, he was rather checked out for most of the story, if I am honest. Going back to mom. I was not a fan of her even though I absolutely empathize with her situation. Dealing with a child that has cancer...I can't even imagine. But I DO KNOW that you can't just let the rest of your family cease to exist as way of coping. I felt better about her character towards the end, a little. I enjoyed the side story of Campbell, Julia and Judge. That was a nice positive in a very sad and dark book. If you haven't read the book or seen the movie, read the book first. I am going to watch the movie now, but I am glad I did the book first. ( )

Loved it. ( )

My Sister's Keeper

By Jodi Picoult

Published year : 2004

Page count : 412

Medium used : Paperback

Genre : Court Room Drama, Family Issues, Fiction, 2023-read.

Rating : 4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The twist at the end is jarring. I was pretty unmoved and really reading with some detachment, counting the time it is taking me to finish this novel, because the course of action to be taken is so obvious to me but everyone in the story is just clueless and acting in order to complicate matters. But the ending is a gut punch and I didn't see it coming! It shows the hand of God playing in our lives everyday.

Till the last few pages, the author has us believe that the parents - especially the mother - are callous enough to just focus on one of their three children and literally throw the other two into winds of non existence. They were so concerned with the health and well being of their second daughter Kate that they will go to any distance, put their other daughter Anna through any amount of discomfort and misery to make Kate well. It all felt surreal and fiendish. But then it turns out that Anna herself is operating under the directions of someone else and she is just as vulnerable, clueless, indecisive as her parents and brother Jesse.

The courtroom brawl is a bit different - they are verbal interrogations as opposed to any presentation of evidence etc. Those episodes were emotionally triggering and very touching. The lengths some can go to preserve something damaged and forgetting that the damaged person might themselves not want to be preserved in their state - is an all too common happening it feels like.

Despite everything, providence/God will do everything for a reason and he makes things fall into place perfectly. The child that has been born and reared for the explicit purpose of keeping her sister safe and alive does just that. :) Unforgettable novel - if only for the different plot setting and including terms like "designer babies" , "kidney donation", "sacrifice one daughter's future for the benefit of another".

So upseting and hard to take at times and yet I couldn't put it down. Not sure how I feel about the ending. ( )

This all feels like some awkward combination of a sci-fi novel and a movie on the Lifetime Channel.
 
Om utgivelsen :

Anna er ikke syk, men hun kunne like gjerne vært det. I løpet av sitt trettenårige liv har hun gjennomgått utallige operasjoner. Hun har nemlig blitt satt til verden for at hennes beinmarg skal redde den eldre søsteren, Kate, fra leukemien hun lider av. Men nå har Anna for første gang begynt å stille spørsmål ved hvem hun egentlig er, og hvem hun ønsker å være. Er hun noe mer enn sin søsters livredder?

For Anna tvinger det seg fram en umulig avgjørelse. En avgjørelse som skal splitte familien og som kanskje får fatale følger for Kate.

Min søsters vokter er en sterk og gripende bok om en familie som befinner seg i en uløselig situasjon. Jodi Picoult er en mester i å skrive innsiktsfullt og engasjerende om viktige moralske spørsmål, og holder leseren fanget helt til siste side er lest.

In my family, we seem to have a tortured history of not saying what we ought to and not meaning what we do.
[My sister] and I are Siamese twins; you just can't see the spot where we're connected. Which makes separation that much more difficult.
True love is felonious. You take someone's breath away. You rob them of the ability to utter a single word. You steal a heart. It's not a misdemeanor... once you're in, it's for life. (paraphrased)
The human capacity for burden is like bamboo-- far more flexible than you'd ever believe at first glance.
Summertime is a collective unconscious. We all remember the notes that made up the song of the ice cream man; we all know what it feels like to brand our thighs on a playground slide that's heated up like a knife ina fire; we all have lain on our backs with our eyes closed and our hearts beating across the surface of our lids, hoping that this day will stretch just a little longer than the last one, when in fact it's all going in the other direction.
