A review of "My Sister's Keeper: A Novel" — 3 years ago
if you seen the movie, I say read the book. it’s the same but not as much as you think it is.
I knew of this book for a while ow, but i didn’t know what’s it was all about, but of course, I ended up letting it piled up in my TBRs for the longest time. Until the movie came….
I have a soft spot in anything that’s being regard as a “spare part child”. It has become an itch, or a peeve if you may, an issue this book has managed to portray.
I found myself trying to read it through whenever I could. This book comprised of first hand experience from all of the characters involved. The book centered on Anna, the specially engineered child by their parents, to be the sole donor for her older sister Kate, who is suffering from a rare kind of Leukemia. One day, she just suddenly said she had enough and decided to court to apply for Medical emancipation from her parents.
Personally this book is an emotional read for me. I got so absorbed in it, and I found myself feeling sorry for Anna through out the book. Regardless screaming somebody die already because i wanted to finish the book asap too lol.
