My Sister’s Keeper
By Jodi Picoult. I’m finding it very difficult to put this book down. Imagine; a couple have a child who is diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, they conceive another baby in vitro that has all the genetic requirements to provide stem cells to help her sister. Thirteen years later after several donations, the ‘baby’ decides that she doesn’t want to give up a kidney to help her dying sister and employs a lawyer………
It also provides an insight on how siblings feel when they live around a sick child. I remember how left out Dom and Olivier were when Christian was ill. I really recommend this book.
