My Sister's Keeper.... Girlfriends Book Review

Hi Everyone!
I have been gone and off the map as far as blogging goes. I have missed you all and I'm ready to get back! Over the next few posts I will do some topics that kind of explain what I've been up to.
You'll have to stay tuned! : )

Here is my book review for My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
I really liked this book and I think that Ms. Picoult did a really wonderful job of writing story from so many different prospectives. The book raises important ethical questions about who plays God and says "when!" . I recommend the book!

Now! Having said that here is my personal opinion. I felt that the token homosexual relationship was obligatory and not pertinent to the story. I thought the ending was cheep and fairytale-ish!
Ms. Picoult is clearly a wonderful writer and cabable of more. I really hate it when I love a story until its ending sells me out. It would be a perfect Lifetime Movie! Sorry that's just my opininion.

Our next Bookclub book will be A Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindberg

Hi Liz,
I've read the book by Lindberg. It is a really good one, very inspiring. I read it when I belonged to a book club about 2 years ago. Let me know what you think.

Jodi Picoult is one of my favorites. I haven't read this one yet. Now you've got me curious.
