My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
The story plot is simple. Brian and Kate, two loving parents of a son and daughter, discover that their two year old daughter has leukemia. Since no one in the family was a match for her they have a baby made with the same DNA so that that way Anna could donate to her sister everything she needed. When it comes to Anna having to donate to her sister a kidney, that's when Anna sues for medical emancipation from her parents.
This book was assigned for summer reading. I was skeptical to read it at first, but I read it, and I absolutely love the book. It's so heart wrenching, the plot is just so addicting I could not put it down. Reading this book it made me realize I take my sister for granted, and that a person does not really value their family until it's too late. I highly recommend this book.
