Plot summary: Anna, a 13 year old girl, is suing her parents for medical emancipation after they want her to donate her kidney to her dying sister. It’s not that she doesn’t love her sister and want her to live, it’s just that she doesn’t want her parents using her body only for medical purposes anymore, without her consent.

  1. Sounds like an interesting book. I’ll definitely be adding it to my list of books to read in the future.

  2. I LOVE this book! I didn’t realize it was being made into a movie. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. I didn’t know they were making this into a movie either!! The end really threw me for a loop :)

  4. This book was so captivating – I wonder how the movie will measure up? I haven’t read any of her other books yet but I plan to. I’m with you – 5 stars!

  5. Wasn’t this book fantastic? I love the twist ending. And I can’t wait for the movie myself- Cameron Diaz, Alec Baldwin, Joan Cusack, etc. (it has a great cast). I agree with you on the 5 stars! This book has inspired me to read some of her other novels (I’ve only read one other to date) but the rest are in my TBR pile.

  6. Wow, I didn’t know it was gonna be made into a movie either, and the cast is great! I really enjoyed the book too, it was my first Jodi Picoult book and I’ve picked up many of hers since.
