      My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Piccult. Synopsis below, but first.

      Please post on the page if you will participate with this book and if you do, I will ask that you lead discussion on 2 chapters.  That way we all get to participate.  Reading will Start on February 1, 2009.  Once I have all the participants for this book I will post a discussion schedule.  I would love to have people email me directly with books for our next selection.  Then I will post the suggestions and we will try voting again and see if that works out.  We are off to a slow start, but we WILL get better at this.  So...who’s reading with me?  and now for the synopsis:

      Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never questioned... until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister - and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable... a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves. My Sister’s Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child’s life... even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less?
