Awesome Author Challenge- Jodi Picoult

October 21, 2010 at 10:22 am Leave a comment

I’ve been reading, but not reporting. Life is rather full. I’ve read quite a few books since replying initially to the Awesome Author Challenge by at home with books.

One of those books was My Sister’s Keeper, by Jodi Picoult.  A friend told me about the book, said I must read it, then I found that my mother had  the book, so I borrowed it from her and read it in a week. I had never read books by this author, but I certainly will look up more. Picoult writes well with strong characterization, believable characters, and well developed subplots, all without overwhelming the reader.

The book is about Anna, a thirteen-year-old girl, and her efforts to be released from her apparent responsibility as tissue donor for her sister Kate who has a rare form of leukemia. Anna goes to a lawyer with her carefully saved up cash from her paper route.  The book is suspenseful with strong characters and scenes. I wanted Anna to succeed, but I also didn’t want Kate to die. I won’t tell you more that it’s a book worth reading.
