My Sisters Keeper

Author: Jodi Picoult

Recommended age group: Late teen and adult

Description: Anna’s life is lived helping her sisters long lasting battle with leukaemia.  With bone marrow and other life saving actions. The book travels through the life of a family where the overlying commitment is to help Kate through her illness and everything else around him being put in second place.  It describes how grief and loss can overtake everything in your life and what it means to deal with it. This story shows a noticeably clear two-sided story of relationships.  It has a very heartfelt and bittersweet ending. This book is now a major movie **spoiler alert: the movie was definitely “family friendly” with a completely different ending that alters the storyline dramatically, and negatively for a lot of readers.
