This book is meant to make you cry...and think. It accomplishes both goals for a lot of readers. We've all heard about parents who have children in order for the new kid to donate genetic materials to their sick older children. Well, this book delves into what it is like to be that new kid. What if that new kid is tired of being the designated donor? What if the parents can only seem to see their sick child? The ending is kind of tied with a loose, heart-wrenching bow. Picoult does have some mis-steps though. Some characters just fall flat like the brother and the guardian. I found myself being not so interested in their sub-plots and I should have been. Also, Picoult kinda of hits you over the head with the message hammer sometimes, but I guess you have to "dumb it down" for the masses. Overall, it was pretty good.
