Anna Fitzgerald is a normal teen, only that she has a sick sister, and that she was born only to save her sister, Kate. When Kate needs a kidney from Anna, she refuses, and filed a lawsuit against her mother, Sara for medical emancipation instead. So begins the fight between mother and daughter, besides the race to save Kate.
Picoult writes with real emotion and true talent. It is a moving tale, I even cried for a while (don't tell people about that). The book is full of suspense and medical terms (ugh!), themed on love, family and sacrifice, narrated alternately by characters of the book. But the ending made me feel sad...
Actually, this is not the cover of my version of the book. Mine is the cover featuring Abigail Breslin and Cameron Diaz in the movie. But still, I like this version better because it's a little more, um, artsy.
