My Sister's Keeper: Books that made me.....
Recently, there was a movie called My Sister's Keeper. When I realised that it was based on a book by Jodi Picoult I went to the library to search for it.
As expected, the book did not disappoint me. It had all the drama that I expected and most importantly, it made me think about many issues which familes deal with. Without giving away too much of the storyline, it is about a teenage girl who is sueing her parents for the rights to her body.
To understand why she even needs to do so, you would need to understand why she was born in the first place. Any problems dealing with family relationships are always complex and hard to solve. It is the people closest to us who can hurt us the hardest. At the same time, despite the problems we have, we cannot break of the blood ties.
Therefore, this book is so heart-wrenchingly painful to read. If you put yourself in the shoes of the main character, Anna, you will feel so much pain for her that it is impossible not to cry. Many times, I actually cried when reading. So, if you are someone who cries when reading books, bring out the tissues for this book.
You will need it!
Twist At the End
As this books reaches the end, there is a twist. As with all mysteries, it is best left unraveled when you read the book yourself. Personally, I did not anticipate the twist and hence the impact was great.
Whatever and however the book ends, it is still worth a read for the compelling characters which Jodi Picoult has weaved into this book, My Sister's Keeper.
