    "This is a good read all about hardships and suffering related to genetic illness. I read this book and it me feel more grateful for my health. This is a good real life suspense thriller, all based on the illness of cancer, one of the best books out there!"

    "Personally I find Jodi Picoult's books to be, shall we say overly sentimental. Its not my thing, but if you like something that might make you cry then go for it."

    "My Sisters keeper is easily my favorite Jodi Picoult book, it is incredibly moving and sad and shows the tragedy that is sickness"

    "This is a tearjerker for sure so make sure you bring lots of Kleenex to read this one. It shows an interesting twist to what it's like to be on the other side of the sick sister. Not only is the girl left in the dark because her sister is sick all the time but she has to be the one to provide what her sister needs the most so her identity is lost. It's a sad but enlightening story. I have two copies!"

    "My sister's keeper is a great book, it's a very good choice for any woman or mom who wants to read a book, it's a must read, and has won many awards and a new york times #1 seller."

    "When my son brought this book home from school, I was intrigued. I picked up My Sister's Keeper out of parental curiosity and couldn't put the book down. This tear jerker deals with painful issues like bullying and making tough life choices. It's a good book for both teens and adults. I think it it the best inspirational book for cancer patients. It really made me contemplate the way humans treat one another."

    "A book about a very difficult subject matter. Certainly for someone wishing to read a harsh and realistic story. "
  • Fernando Cázares
    Written on May 5, 2018
    "This was a really good book! It really challenges what we define as moral and made me rethink my own values while I was reading it. It was touching and heart-wrenching at the same time. The author really seems to understand humans on a deeper level and her writing really reflects that."
  • Gregory Franklin

    "I completely disagree. Although this book is a fascinating read and evokes many emotional reactions at times, I'd hardly call it the best book with a title that starts with l, m, or n. Have you considered, even for a second, Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. What an amazing journey of a read. Again, good book, but I disagree with this solution."
  • Marcela Galicia

    "This is certainly a book about sisters, but it's a little less about sisterly bonds. It does seem like a good book that tackles moral dilemmas with grace, but it's not exactly what I was looking for!"
  • Paul Mendez

    "This was a very moving and well written story, but it was a little heavy for me. I couldn't read too much of it at once."
  • Rishika Sarin
    Written on May 6, 2018
    "I think novels that have a basis in truth, that show what truly happens in this sloppy world, where family mores, agendas and traditions get tested, are quite possibly a reader's best bet for an ending that is unexpected and challenging. This one did not disappoint."
  • Katherine Hopkins

    "This book devastated me to bits! Why is such manipulative system so existent and alive in the book it seems so real!!! The ending omg it had be crying for three nights remembering it! This has so much impact on me!"

    ""My Sister's Keeper" is a very successful piece of writing which is a bestseller and also happens to be adapted into a movie of the same name but success is not a good indicator of quality. The novel is written in a way that everything feels forced. Like it is trying very hard to be as tear-jerking as possible but it happens so artificially and is so detached from the plot that reading it feels like a chore most of the time. "

    "My Sister's Keeper is not a good book for dog training. This story is more of a heartfelt recollection of a sisters Anna and Kate and the unselfishness in donating bone marrow to her sister suffering from leukemia. This books not really for dog training."
  • Emily Reid

    "I mean if you want a book to make you want to squall your eyeballs out, this is the book for you. After the hardest year of my life, I was emotionally spent, that there were no tears for me. Or so, I thought. This book showed me just how human and that there is plenty of tears left in me. "

    "I'm pretty shocked that parents had a problem with this book being assigned to high school students. It's completely relevant to today's youth. What's surprising about the attempt to ban this book was that parents had a problem with the sex scenes, not the violence. Sure, a kid shoots other kids and that's no problem but even the mere mention of sexually active high school students sends parents into a fit? Grow up. There are much larger issues in this book, as in life, and sex doesn't always have to be the first thing on everyone's mind. Come on adults--let's set a better example of our kids. Read this book to remember what high school was like and see it through your kid's eyes. Talk to them about bullying, and about sex, instead of trying to ban a book that can easily open the conversation."

    "This is not my usual book to read. We chose it in book club, but I loved it. Great writing and really made me think about how we treat each other as human beings. Also gave me more empathy for the troubled and bullied kids out there. Cried for the last 3 or 4 chapters. It is truly a heart wrenching story (situation) for all those involved. I certainly re-evaluated some of my opinions of people and reminded me not to judge others when I don't know all the facts. This was a book I could not put down!"

    "This is a beautifully written book, full of sadness, humor, and great wisdom. It really makes you think of what it means to be a good person, and of standing up for yourself against overwhelming pressure to tow the line. This is an amazing novel I just couldn't put down!"

    "Definitely a good choice for a book club discussion. There's a lot to talk about. There's a lot of drama in the book, and moreso a lot of tough decisions, which people could easily be on different sides of. I think there's even a version of it that has some book club discussion questions included in the back. You could really learn a lot about yourself and your club members by having discussions about this book."

    "My Sister's Keeper is the best romance novel that deals with an illness that I have read. This is a real tear-jerker and I had to finish it in one sitting. Anna was born to provide bone marrow for her sick sister Kate and she becomes bitter about it. This novel will keep you interested and will definitely test your emotions. I loved it!"

    "I'll say this, it isn't a book you'd normally catch me reading and that's not exactly bad. However, the book club I am part of decided on it and in turn, I read through it and was pleasantly surprised by it. I wouldn't call it flawless by any means, but from somebody who doesn't normally enjoy this? It was worth the read."

    "This sounds like it would fit the bill for a most depressing book. This is a thorny and controversial theme, and the thought of a young girl with no reason to live other than to give her bone marrow to her sister should fill any reader's soul with the sadness and ennui of life."
