A New Book

I have a friend who told me about a book I just read.
It's called My Sisters Keeper by Jodi Picoult. It's about a daughter that has Leukemia and the parents have another baby, genetically engineered to give them the cord blood to save the other sister.
It brought a lot of issues to the forefront -- about what you would do in the situtaion if one of your children faced dying, would you put another child in pain to save that child.
Anyway, I really liked it. I definately recommend it -- for the times when you're ready for a heavy book -- this is most certainly not a light read.

    If you read anything by Jodi Picoult you'll fall in love with her. I have read many of her books over and over and each and every one of them make me cry. Check them out!

  3. I'm not a reader. I do like reading true stories though. I think I remember the story. Being a mom and a grandma I have to say that Love is so deep that I think I would almost do anything to help, fix or protect my child. Life's trials are tough and evey trial and situation is different.
