FAMILY TROUBLES

Picoult is known for using her fiction to take on difficult subjects (euthanasia and teen suicide, for instance). My Sisterís Keeper is no exception. The story centers on Kate, who has leukemia and requires quantities of donor-matching bone marrow and now a kidney that only Anna, her younger sister, can provide. It turns out that her parents conceived Anna for that very reason, and, at age 13, she sues them for control of her own body. Picoult has taken a mind-shaking premise and has crafted an enthralling page-turner that keeps the readerís rapt attention to the very surprising end.

MY SISTERíS KEEPER, by Jodi Picoult (Washington Square Press, 2005)

The ending of this one put me off Picoult for good.

I've never read anything by Picoult, but I'm not sure this would be the right one to start with.
