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.

3.0 Review: My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Quick review for a quick read. I first read "My Sister's Keeper" many years ago, but I wanted to do a re-reading of it before I wrote a review. I think my opinion on the book is about the same as it was several years back. It's one of those books that can either work for you or completely throw you ...

4.5 "Bez mojej zgody" na ważne wybory.
Zastanawiam się, co mądrego mogę napisać o tej książce, o bohaterach. Mam tu ten sam problem, co z książką "Miasto ślepców". Uważam, że "Bez mojej zgody" jest świetną książką, którą każdy powinien znać. Ale czy będę potrafiła zachęcić Was do przeczytania książki? Powieść na pewno porusza etyczne, mo...

Gott hab ich zum Schluss geheult !Ich kenne den Film und dachte das es so beschrieben ist wie der Film, aber das gegenteil war es und das Ende war dann mal ganz anders.Ich finde das Buch toll, wie Anna von dem schüchternen Mädchen zur Kämpferin wurde um nie mehr für ihre Schwester zu spenden.
