My Sister's Keeper Giveaway

It's time for my very first giveaway! I hope you all have as much fun with this as I am!

Synopsis: 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.

I can't wait to see this movie. My sister and I promised not to watch it with out each other.


Don't enter me in the contest though. While I enjoy movies that make me cry I don't like books that make me cry.

I've been wanting to read this book but I'm afraid to. Afraid that I will cry thru the whole thing. That is why I cannot get myself to watch the movie. Please enter me.

Great review! I don't need to be entered for the contest because although you make the book sound awesome, it'll probably make me sob endlessly. I'm still trying to convince myself to check it out from the library. But awesome contest and review nonetheless! :)
