Another book that tended to go on and on. Each individual in the child's life was given a voice, and each chapter was seen through the eyes of that person. A sister was conceived and born just so the sick sister (leukemia) would have a blood/marrow/kidney donor when she needed it. However, the sister got fed up and at age 13 decided she wanted to make medical decisions for herself and stop being treated as a second class family member. So she sued her parents for medical emanicipation. The ending was a big surprise and was the best part of the book because there was finally a little shock value to the ongoing story.

Debra Would you like to read my copy of her other book, "Handle With Care" about a family with a child who is born with Ostiogenesis Imperfecta", a brittle bone disease? I think it follows the same formula as "My Sister's Keeper"...interesting ideas.
