2008-06 Discussion of My Sister's Keeper em Read YA Lit (Abril 2012)


I read maybe 1/3 of this book before I gave up. I don't care for the writing, the characters (the mom is a TOTAL bitch), anything about this book. I will say that I skipped through and read the last several pages to see what happened, to see if the book had the same ending as the movie (it doesn't.) I read this one in paperback, but I have another book by Jodi Picoult (Plain Truth) on my e-reader, and if it's anything like this one, I won't be reading it all the way through, either.

This is such and eye opening story about daily life for people of color in the midst of what most caucasions consider ordinary middle class life. Jodi did an amazing amount of research as she wrote and before publication so that she could reflect authenticity.

I have always enjoyed Jodi's books and this one did not disappoint. She is not afraid to tackle tough subjects.

This book about what you would do for the one you love. There are two stories being told here. The story of Cam and Allie who live in Wheelock, Massachusetts and the story of Jamie and Maggie who live in a neighboring town. Cam is the police chief and Allie owns a floral shop in town. They are married but have no children. Cam's family moved to the town from Scotland many years before. Jamie and Maggie (also married with no children) drive to Wheelock where Jamie will only talk to Cam (Cam remembers later that he and Jamie are cousins) to confess to killing Maggie.

The same day, Mia shows up in town and Allie feels sorry for her so she hires her at the floral shop. There is an immediate spark between Cam and Mia.

Back to what you would do for the one you love - would you leave? Would you kill? Would you lie? If a terminally ill family member asks you to kill them will it be considered murder? Or is it Mercy?

Wow. A very controversial topic that was tackled very well. This story is about Ruth Jefferson, a labor & delivery nurse at a hospital where she's worked for 20 years. One day at work, there is an incident that leaves her having to make a difficult decision and then the consequences afterward due to her decision. At the high level, this book is about racism. Jodi Picoult is known for conducting her own research and almost immersing herself in that research so that she can learn everything she can learn about the particular topic she's writing about. Her approach to this book is no different. She even wrote, in her "Author's Note" at the end of the book that in writing this book, it forced her to take a hard look at herself. I could not put this book down.… (mais)
