    1. I thought this book was exceptionally well written. It's a story that would be every mother's nightmare. A mother with one child suffering from Leukaemia so they have another child to save the life of their current one. Only the as the child get's older she no longer wants to be just a donor for this and that she wants to be like any normal child playing with her friends. This is a very deep story. One that will grip you and never let you go. I could not imagine being a mother in this position f [...]


    2. "Darkness, you know, is relative." is a line from the book "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult. It is one of the best books that I have ever read. It's just the kind that I like; dramatic, inspirational, and realistic fiction.Almost all teenagers are allegedly invinsible. Not Kate Fitzgerald. She has had a rare form of leukimia since she was two years old and has skimmed the very lips of death on a constant basis. In hopes of curing Kate, her parents make a "designer baby" to match to Kate's bl [...]


    3. This was a book that I read almost accidentally. The film of the same name but based on the book by Jodi Picoult had recently come out and my mum bought this book to read. This is NOT the story of a girl with Leukaemia and a sister being used to prolong her life. This is a very different story that as a 12 year old girl was very shocking, and definitely unsuitable, I should have stopped reading as soon as I realised the mistake, but I didn't because despite the very horrific events that happen i [...]


    4. This book is about a girl who gets leukemia and is fighting for her life in hospital when her mother donates her organs. All her life, up until she is 13 the little sister is put through many surgical procedures until she doesnt want to anymore.So she gets a lawyer and takes her parent to court to stop them using her. The girl gets the permission from the court to stop, much to her parents disgust.The older sister passes away in the hospital bed with her family beside her.I really enjoyed readin [...]


    5. This is one ofy favorite books because I struggled and rooted for the character so much. This book was easy to get into because the author asks such a hard question that many unfortunately one day face in their own family. The character that i fought the most with was the mother because I couldn't agree with there way she eater her second daughter like a LAN rat or a bin with spare parts just to prolong her first Norns life while the brother is ignored and the family lives in dysfunction because [...]


    6. Bernardine Kennedy was recommended to me by a friend many years ago, I have since read & enjoyed all of her books & this is a favourite. Bernardine is a great writer and this was a fabulous engrossing story. If you enjoy books by Lesley Pearse, I'm sure you will also love Bernardine Kennedy, give them a try you won't be disappointed.I have noticed that most of the reviews for this Bernardine Kennedy book seem to be for a Jodi Picoult book with the same title that I have not even read?


    7. My sisters keeper is a real tear jerker. It shows you how much love there is in a family. It is one of those books that make you want to do a good deed when you are done with it. It teaches people not to be as selfish. When someone is in need, help them out because everyone needs a helping hand every once in a while. In this case it was a much more serious way of lending a helping hand but still gets the message across. Overall this was a really excellent book and I would recommend for anyone to [...]


    8. I decided to read this book because my friend had told me it was really good.What I liked about this book was that the story is told from other peoples point of view through-out the story.What I didn't like about this book was that it diddn't have a happy ending,and i wasn't expecting it to end that way. I would recommend this book to mostly girls aged 11 to about 18.


    9. Really makes you think. I read this book thinking I knew what the right choice would be but after reading from each character's point of view, couldn't make a decision. Definitely a sad story. Very well written.


    10. I thought this book was really good, i think that it was a very worthwhile book to read- it was very sad/emotional and had lots of strong messages butmit was very nice to read even though it was such a trajjic story!!!!


    11. I was given this book from an older lady and was expecting a throw away romance novel. It is a throwaway story, but has a more sinister side than expected and what the cover portrays. Good but leaves you with a slightly sordid feeling (and not the "50 shades/black lace kinda sordid).


    12. I read the book first then saw the movie and both pulled at my heart and filled me with over whelming sadness but I can understand the struggles of the mom side of not letting go and the courage of the sister of respecting Kates wishes.


    13. This book was a slow read for me and was getting quite good til the ending. After I read the ending I wanted to throw the book down on the ground and stomp on it and all that kept me from doing that was that I didn't own the book.










    14. Had trouble liking some of the characters. The ending was shocking. Saw the movie and hated it. Read the book.
