Book Review

I've had this book forever and Brittany has been bugging me to read it. It's not our usual trashy books so I couldn't get into it. It's also written in a kind of different style that jumps all over the place that drove me crazy but I loved it.

It's about a family of four and when their daughter is 2, she is diagnosed with cancer. Well the family decides to conceive another daughter that would genetically match this sister so she could donate her cord blood. Well eventually this younger sister at 13 years old files for medical emancipation from her parents. There's lots of other stories that take place in this book and it's so good. I won't say anything else. So if you are looking for a good book, pick this up.
Another book I didn't read but listened on tape was Austenland. I also really liked this book. It's totally just a fun book to read and while it was fun to listen to I'm not sure I would have loved it if I were reading it. It just wasn't the best writing and there wasn't much substance to it.
I did find myself laughing at the character, Jane since I've recently it seems become obsessed with all things Jane Austen. I loved, loved, loved the ending to this book. So if you want a fun little read, check this out.

I read that book several years ago and loved it! I've read almost all of Jodi Picoult's books.

Hey . . . I resent that trashy book comment. Are you kidding me?? I read nothing but quality literature that I kindly and unselfishly pass down to my closest friends.

Another good book is China Run by David W. Ball. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.
