13 year old Anna sues her parents for the right to make her own medical decisions after her parents want to use one of her kidneys to save her older sister. Anna is a designer baby, conceived to help her older sister Kate who was diagnosed with an serious type of cancer at age two.
The author made a very intelligent decision in the way she told the story through different voices - both Anna, her parents, brother and sister, the lawyer she hires and her guardian. It gives Picoult a chance to show the different arguments to this discussion and the different perspectives and makes it easier to see both the case as her parents see it, particularly her mother, and as Anna sees it.
I really liked the book and it made me cry - the ending took me by surprise even though I knew that it would not end as expected.
